Micro-Melt® Maxamet, extremely hard and durable modern American tool powder steel with low coefficient of friction. Going beyond conventional tool steels, parameters similar to sintered carbides - ultra-hard materials used to process other steels. This phenomenal steel is manufactured in the USA by Carpenter Technology Corporation.
Blade - with a Spear Point profile, 3.2 mm thickness. Smooth blade (Plain type) was made with a full flat cut (Full Flat Grind), reducing the weight of the knife and increased cutting properties. The Satin Finish (semi-matte) coating eliminates glares. An enlarged 14 mm round SpyderHole cut-out (Spyderco patent) allows the knife to be opened with the thumb. High-quality (made in the USA) solid blockade (Back-Lock type) guarantees better smooth operation. Notched thumb ramp and Finger Choil (profiled undercut finger between the handle and the cutting edge) increase control over the knife.
Handle - in gray color, coated with non-slip textured Bi-Directional Texturing - strengthens the grip even with wet hands. Made of plastic FRN (Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon), fiberglass reinforced nylon. The folder is equipped with a solid metal screw-on clip with the possibility of fixing in four planes (up / down, right / left). 4-way clip positions. In the rear part of the handle there is: a hole enabling the installation of a safety rope.
Frame - reinforced with two steel plates to which the cladding was attached. This ensures high durability with a low knife weight. The whole has been bolted with enlarged torx screws to facilitate the twisting and unfolding of the folder.
