CPM S20CV - one of the best tool steels in the world, American premium martensitic stainless steel. Manufactured by US Crucible Industries according to the Crucible® Particle Metallurgy (CPM) process. The CPM process yields a very homogeneous, high-quality steel with excellent dimensional stability, grindability and ductility compared to steels produced by conventional methods. Designed to provide better wear resistance while maintaining corrosion resistance at the highest level. This super steel is comparable to Bohler's M390 steel or Carpenter's CTS-204P. According to some knife manufacturers, 20CV is the best of these three steels in terms of edge retention. It consists of 19.0% carbon, 20.0% chromium, 4.0% vanadium, 1.0% molybdenum and 0.6% tungsten. The high percentage of chromium with a touch of molybdenum makes 20CV one of the best high-end corrosion-resistant steels.
Blade - Dagger type, sharpened on one side, finished with a scratch-masking Bead Blasted method and then carefully polished. The light belly extends the length of the cutting edge relative to the length of the blade converging toward the needle-sharp tip of the knife. The light thickness combined with a high flat grind (Flat Grind) gives excellent cutting properties combined with high strength. Ball bearing ceramic bearings support the smooth operation of the blade's opening mechanism, which can be opened with a quick flipper flipper (index-finger flipper). When opened, the flipper forms a mini-guard to prevent your hand from slipping on the blade. The whole thing is locked with the proven and popular frame lock with a steel insert that prevents the lock face from rubbing off.
Handle - this is a show off of the innovation of the designers from WeKnife. Two pieces of 6AL4V titanium, beautifully milled are joined at the end by a titanium cap made of a single piece of titanium. This allows the Handle to maintain incredible rigidity and resistance. Only a few companies are able to make the Handle with such incredible accuracy! Another innovation is symmetrically placed on both sides of the knife clips for carrying. No more unscrewing screws and rearranging, we can carry the knife on the right and left side in the same position. An added treat is that the clips are finished with a roller, making it easier to slide the knife in and hook it to the edge of the fabric. The cap and clips in a contrasting bronze color to the black.
Case - included zippered soft nylon case with the manufacturer's logo for safe storage and transportation of the folder.
