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 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 - sheepfoot 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 blade's opening mechanism, which can be opened with a quick flipper flipper (index-finger flipper), so it can be easily used by right- and left-handed people. We can also open it using a hole in the wedge. On the back of the wedge 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 solid titanium 6AL4V. The gray color of the material was beautifully broken with flame coloring in the central part. Chamfered edges of the covers eliminate sharp edges for comfort and improve grip security. The solid titanium backspacer to which the grips are attached guarantees the rigidity and strength of the entire structure. A single-position, right-handed titanium clip allows the knife to be carried in tip-up position, with the tip of the blade upward.
Sheath - kydex scabbard added to the set, along with a ball chain, allowing the knife to be worn around the neck.
