Heretic Knife Manticore X RE Black Aluminium, Black DLC S35VN by Tony Marfione Jr.
- Manticore X Recurve Black Anodized Aluminium, Black DLC S35VN full size OTF automatic knife from the Manticore range. Operating in D/A mode and featuring a hell of a fast blade extension mechanism. Designed by Tony Marfione Jr. owner of Heretic Knives
Manticore X RE Black Anodized Aluminium, Black DLC S35VN is the largest OTF (Out The Front) automatic knife in the Manticore range. Featuring a hell of a fast extension mechanism for a razor sharp blade. 100% made and assembled in the USA. Designed by Anthony Marfione Jr. knifemaker and owner of Heretic Knives.
Operating in D/A (Double Action) mode and featuring an innovative locking mechanism for unparalleled performance and reliability. Designed with precision engineering and built from the highest quality materials. Key features of the largest Manticore X include the silky-smooth operation of the powerful mechanism when unfolding and folding with one hand, which begins with a gradual thumb-slide of the stepped slide, allowing the powerful blade to be fired with confidence.
CPM S35VN - American martensitic high-alloy stainless steel with a hardness of 59-61 HRC, one of the best blade steels. Designed to provide better strength compared to CPM S30V, while maintaining corrosion resistance at the highest level. Manufactured by US Crucible Industries using the particle metallurgy / Crucible® Particle Metallurgy (CPM) process. The CPM process produces a very homogeneous, high quality steel with excellent dimensional stability, grindability and ductility compared to steels produced by conventional methods. The chemical composition has been balanced so that it consists of 0.5% niobium carbides (Nb) along with 3.0% vanadium (V) and 14.0% chromium (Cr) carbides. Replacing some of the niobium carbides with vanadium carbides makes the steel approximately 15-20% harder than S30V without sacrificing wear resistance, and it is also easier to machine and polish. The improved strength of CPM S35VN also provides better resistance to edge chipping.
DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) durability of the blade surface is enhanced with a matte black nanocomposite coating, which exhibits the unique properties of natural diamonds, such as exceptional hardness and low friction, also corrosion resistance. It is one of the most resistant coatings to scratches and abrasion that are used in industry, including the knife industry.
Blade - RE (Recurve Edge) type with black DLC coating. Plain blade, derived with a high flat grind (Flat Grind), providing excellent cutting properties. This gives the knife excellent piercing qualities whilst maintaining its strength. The sturdy blade extension/retraction mechanism via the moled Thumb Slide, a stepped thumb slide, requires for safety the application of a specific force to overcome the resistance of the spring. The method of opening ensures trouble-free opening for both right and left-handed people.
Handle - made with perfect precision in 3D technology on CNC milling machines, from black anodised 6061-T6 aluminium. The surface texture of the Handle ensures that the knife does not slip in the hand during use. There are notches (jimping) on the back and bottom of the handle for a more secure grip. The slim profile and the milled two-position (right/left) solid deep-carry clip allow the knife to be carried discreetly in the pocket, in tip-down position. The Handle is finished with a lanyard hole, cord hole and glass breaker.
