A unique folder from the Italian manufactory equipped with CPM MagnaCut steel blade, Emerson Wave hook and "ReF" technology flipper.
Emerson Knives have been serving the world's most elite special forces soldiers in all global conflicts and secret missions for more than 20 years. They have been carried by US Navy SEAL teams, Delta Force, Army Special Forces, Army Rangers, US Marines, CIA Special Activities Division and even the legendary British SAS. The Emerson CQC-7 knife, which was used in the manhunt that killed Osama Bin Laden, was sold at auction for $35,400, making it the most expensive and valuable production knife ever made.
Karambit - a type of knife that originated in Indonesia, with roots in Malaysia and the Philippines. It is characterized by a finger ring and sickle-shaped blade, which is characterized by tremendous cutting efficiency. Hawkbill mimics the way an eagle's claw or a tiger's claw rips through, piercing and cutting simultaneously. Used as a working knife and for defense.
CPM MagnaCut - Powdered stainless steel produced by the Crucible® Particle Metallurgy (CPM) process. High in vanadium, molybdenum and niobium, it guarantees accuracy and purity unmatched by more "conventional" steels. Designed and developed specifically for blade production by Larrin Thomas, it meets all the requirements of knife enthusiasts. With CPM, MagnaCut was able to create a steel that combines unique properties like no other knife steel. The result is a blade material that offers a remarkable balance of wear resistance, strength and corrosion resistance. There is no other steel on the world market today that offers a comparable combination of superior properties. This exceptional steel is produced at Crucible® Industries' American steel mills.
Blade - aggressive, Hawkbill type. The rounded shape of the blade is characterized by great efficiency and speed of cutting. Plain blade with reinforced tip and sharply curved edge for maximum cutting results finished with glare eliminating Chemical Black coating. The ramp (Thumb jimping) thanks to which we can better control the knife smoothly transitions into the Emerson Wave quick-opening system, allowing us to instantly retrieve the knife with the blade already open. In addition, we can open the knife using the oval opening in the head or with the ReF technology flipper. The smoothness of the opening is ensured by the ball bearings used. The whole thing is locked with a proven and popular frame lock with a steel insert that protects against wiping the face of the lock.
Emerson Wave - located on the back of the blade, Ernest Emerson's patented hook allows you to quickly open the blade when removing the knife from the pocket by hooking the hook to the edge of the pocket. Thanks to Wave, any Emerson folder equipped with this solution is the fastest knife in the world when it comes to opening speed. It's also faster than an automatic knife, as it's ready to use once you grab it.
ReF - (Removable Flipper System) located on the underside of the blade, the projection / flipper flipper facilitates quick opening of the blade with one hand. It consists of a small lever (flipper) protruding beyond the back of the handle when the head is closed. Thanks to ReF technology, it is possible to unscrew the flipper and open the wedge using only the oval hole or the Wave hook.
Handle - in black color. Made with Solid® Knife technology, obtained from a single block of solid Ergal aluminum, machined in 4D. As a result, a lightweight, monolithic skeleton (body) of the highest strength was obtained, which is a solid structural element. The grip facings were CNC machined, obtaining a non-slip texture with excellent grip. A two-position left/right compact clip allows you to carry the knife in tip-up (tip up) position. The handle is finished with a finger ring (Back Ring). It prevents accidental release of the knife from the hand and also makes it easier to rotate the folder around the finger, allowing you to perform traditional techniques.
