- Chilin Black Titanium, Black Stone Washed PVD, an elegant design by Jesper Voxnaes with a distinctive leaf-shaped wedge. Excellent M398 tool steel, rugged titanium Handle in typical Jesper utilitarian and modern style!
Chilin Black Titanium, Black Stone Washed PVD an undersized, elegant with exceptional ergonomics E.D.C. folder, whose shape is derived from traditional Chinese Shilin Cutters. Designed in accordance with the modern, minimalist style of Danish knifemaker Jesper Voxnæs. Lightweight, decorated with refined details, a unique combination of style, functionality and reference to tradition.
Shilin Cutters handmade knives by members of the Chiu family. The history of these knives began in 19th century China and a select few were taught to make them. These folders embody old world craftsmanship, knives that are meant to last a lifetime.
M398 Microclean® - a martensitic high-performance chrome steel produced by powder metallurgy. Due to its alloy concept, it has extremely high wear resistance and high corrosion resistance. Due to its high wear resistance, it adequately maintains the shape of the edge, so the blade stays sharp for a very long time (requiring minimal maintenance). Another of the advantages is resistance to the formation of "wire" during sharpening. The steel has a high chromium content of 20.0% (Cr) and carbon content of 2.7% (C) and vanadium 7.2% (V) with molybdenum 1.0% (Mo), tungsten 0.7% (W). Designed to provide better strength compared to M390, launched in 2019. M398 contains more carbon and vanadium, making it a very hard 60-62 HRC steel. Manufactured by Böhler Edelstahl in Kapfenberg, Austria.
Stone Washed PVD - the blade has undergone a Stone Washed finish to mask minor scratches. Subsequently, the durability of the blade's surface and cutting edge was increased using the Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) method of thin surface coating, in which a layer of coating material is deposited on a substrate by condensation from the gas phase to the solid phase. The deposited coating has a very high hardness, which greatly increases the resistance of the blade to abrasive wear.
Blade - wide, drop point type, in the characteristic shape of a leaf (leaf shaped). Finished with a scratch-masking Stonewashed method and then PVD-coated. The generous belly extends the length of the cutting edge in relation to the length of the blade converging towards the needle-sharp tip of the knife. The thickness of the blade provides high strength while the high, flat grind gives excellent cutting edge geometry and extreme cutting performance. Ball bearings support the opening of the blade by means of an opening accessible from both sides of the wedge. A section of the back of the wedge is covered with an upper jimping, notched thumb rest for easy control of the knife. The whole thing is locked with the proven and popular liner lock.
Handle - made of solid titanium 6AL4V in black. Chamfered edges of the sheaths eliminate sharp edges and texturing of the Handle improves grip comfort. The backspacer, oxidized to the color of old braze, provides rigidity and solidity to the whole structure. The same color is used for the decorative overlay around the pivot. A two-position (right/left) lightweight wire clip allows the knife to be carried in the tip-up position, with the tip of the blade upward. Above the clip a hole for threading a safety or decorative cord.
