steel, anything resonable will do. it's a light duty gentlemans folder.
I would like to see prime handle scales, buffalo horn, blond horn, polished premium woods.
made in germany would be nice as well. 250 to 300euro.
Hello Lionsteel, not sure who or how you translated your latest promotion into the german language.
As it is now it appears very unprofessional.
In any case this translation is really horrible and I think you´d be better of to stick with english. Most germans have enough english to...
Well ir was bought at cuttleryshoppe for 210 US$ which comes out as 190. I also threw in 2 bottles of russian vodka that I bought near Moskau where I had to work at that time..
Anyway back to toppic. The core of my question is:
Is the fluted titanium native relativey cheap and easy to...
I had a collegue bring me this knive from the US for around 190.
After recieveing it, it is all I wanted, Nice shiny gentleman EDC. Solid construction. Good ergos. Seems capabale of pretty hard use, The blade is short but that was as described.
Now I wonder why is this knive fairly cheap...
It is a quite OK blade profile and resonably thin behind the bevel (similar to what spyderco does with the sage).
Of course and this is unfortunately true for most production knives (the exeption beeing some traditional blades, Opninel, Laguiole) it could be a lot thinner and still be...
Nothing much to add but I just recieved this nkive and I really like it. So bumping this up for more people to see.
Very nice EDC. Decent very stainless steel (VG-10)
Ultralight weight (1.7 oz, 48g )and useful blade length (3 3/7 Inch, 87 mm)
The drilled holes in the handle not only look nice...
Steel: Elmax is a modern powder steel 1.7C 0.8 Si 0.3 Mn, 18.0 Cr, 1.0 Mo, 3.0 V. From an engineering standpoint this is superiour to any damascus steel. Even with a lot of effort small mistakes happen when in the process of smithing (wording?) damascus steel.
Great edge holding but a bit hard...
A slightly thinner blade would be great. 4.5 mm is an overkill.
No folder, no matter how overenginnered makes an effective pry bar.
Use a pry bar or a fixed for that. 2.5 mm or 3 mm would make the knife lighter and an awesome slicer. And the blade would still be more stable then the mechanical...
@mantzao, 85 mm = 3 3/8th inches. Do those extra 3/8s matter?
@All, in some way I really like the polished look but it does not really look like titan specially in silver.
I also wonder how much the polishing holds up over time.
Anyway cool knife
Steel insert or not.
