CPM S20CV - one of the best tool steels in the world, American premium martensitic stainless steel. Manufactured by US Crucible Industries according to the Crucible® Particle Metallurgy (CPM) process. The CPM process yields a very homogeneous, high-quality steel with excellent dimensional stability, grindability and ductility compared to steels produced by conventional methods. Designed to provide better wear resistance while maintaining corrosion resistance at the highest level. This super steel is comparable to Bohler's M390 steel or Carpenter's CTS-204P. According to some knife manufacturers, 20CV is the best of these three steels in terms of edge retention. It consists of 19.0% carbon, 20.0% chromium, 4.0% vanadium, 1.0% molybdenum and 0.6% tungsten. The high percentage of chromium with a touch of molybdenum makes 20CV one of the best high-end corrosion-resistant steels.
Blade - Drop point type with a sandblasted Silver Bead Blasted finish masking minor scratches. The generous belly extends the length of the cutting edge relative to the length of the blade converging toward the needle-sharp tip of the knife. The small thickness combined with a high flat grind (Flat Grind) gives excellent cutting properties combined with high strength. Ceramic ball bearings support the smooth operation of the blade's opening mechanism, which can be opened in as many as three ways; by gravity with a release button on one of the handles, with a quick flipper flipper (index-finger flipper), or with a pin in the blade (double thumb stud). When opened, the flipper forms a mini-guard to prevent the hand from slipping on the blade. To improve blade control, the back of the wedge is covered with an upper jimping, notched thumb rest. The entire blade is locked with a modern button lock. Under the lock button is a spring, providing enough resistance to avoid accidental opening.
The handle - is two pieces of solid titanium 6AL4V in black. Chamfered edges of the covers eliminate sharp edges for comfort and improve grip security, additional decoration in the form of a milled indentation. The open-backed design, fixed with steel spacer sleeves, reduces weight and facilitates cleaning. As with other EC models, the pivot axis is decorated with a stylized manufacturer's logo. A two-position, left/right titanium clip allows the knife to be carried in the tip-up position, with the tip of the blade upward.
