Greg Medford's idea was to create the most reliable knives imaginable while retaining their beauty and adding the "soul" of a handmade finish.
CPM S45VN - 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 carbides (V) and 14.0% chromium carbides (Cr). The improved strength of CPM S45VN also provides better resistance to edge chipping.
Blade's straight machine-finished "tumbled" blade with a high concave grind is a true "cutter" that flows through the material being cut. "Smooth" in the name obliges, so ball bearings were used to make opening smooth as butter. The flipper fin, when opened, acts as a mini guard to protect our hand.
Handle made of aluminum, hard anodized in blue. The backspacer ends in a glass nailer with a hole for interlacing a safety or ornamental cord. A decorative locking button decorates the Handle and makes it easy to hit with the hand, for example, when wearing a glove. The whole is complemented by a deep carry clip. Both the clip and screws have been finished in flame gaining a unique color scheme.
Included is a Peli type waterproof case for storing and carrying the knife.
