Ostap Hel - a talented Polish knifemaker and designer. His designs are based on the fundamentals of geometry, smooth transitions and the concept of "golden proportion". He is not afraid to experiment with new shapes and ideas to fit the unique style and production capabilities of the company he designs for.
CPM S35VN - American martensitic high-alloy stainless steel with a hardness of 59-61 HRC, one of the best steels for blades. Designed to provide better strength compared to CPM S30V, while keeping corrosion resistance at the highest level. Manufactured by US Crucible Industries using the particle metallurgy / Crucible® Particle Metallurgy (CPM) method. The CPM process creates 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 is composed 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 about 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.
Blade - hawkbill type with an aggressive shape, with a striking Two Tone finish, satin cut, the rest of the blade finished with Stonewashed. The small thickness of the blade combined with a high flat grind (Flat Grind) gives excellent cutting edge geometry and extreme cutting performance. Ceramic ball bearings support the smooth operation of the opening mechanism of the wedge, which can be opened with a quick flipper front flipper (index-finger front flipper), so it can be easily used by right- and left-handed people. On the back of the blade a slight recess where we can place our thumb for more precise work. The whole thing is locked with a proven and popular frame lock with a steel insert to prevent wiping of the lock face.
Handle - made of titanium 6AL4V with black coating, bronze-colored edges. Chamfered edges of the covers eliminate sharp edges and milled patterns on the Handle provide a secure grip. The open-backed design, so called without the typical backspacer, attaches with steel spacers for easy cleaning. The simple, sturdy design provides assurance of many years of use. Deep finger undercut (fore finger groove) improves grip security. Single-position (right) titanium deep-carry clip allows you to carry the knife discreetly in your pocket in tip-up position (blade tip up).
Case - included zippered soft nylon case with manufacturer's logo for safe storage and transportation of the folder.
