Eastwood Tiger Sandblasted Titanium, Coarse Stonewashed extremely effective, full size (full size)ny E.D.C. folder with a blade designed for aggressive use. Designed for users who seek the reliability of a fixed blade, but don't want to give up the compact size of a folding knife. The fruit of knifemaker Gudy van Poppel's collaboration with Italian brand Fox.
Gudy van Poppel began his career as a blacksmith, making blades for several decades. In the mid-1990s, he learned to forge his own Damascus steel. Gudy also manufactures all the parts for his knives himself, including screws and washers. He finishes his designs with natural materials like mammoth or walrus tusks and exotic wood.
CPM S90V - a martensitic stainless high-alloy tool steel with a hardness of 56-59 HRC with 9.0% vanadium (V) and 2.3% carbon (C). The high vanadium content promotes the formation of hard vanadium carbides for strength and exceptional wear resistance, and increases corrosion resistance. This unique steel is designed for the production of high-grade blades and knife wedges. 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 toughness compared to steels produced by conventional methods.
Blade - Clip Point with aggressive shape and clearly marked belly finished with scratch-masking Coarse Stonewashed method. The massive 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). When opened, the flipper forms a mini-guard to prevent your hand from slipping on the blade. The whole thing is locked with the proven and popular frame lock with a steel insert to prevent wiping of the lock face.
Handle - made of titanium, the beveled edges of the covers eliminate sharp edges, and the fore finger groove made on the front improves grip security. The facings are screwed to an intricately machined titanium backspacer, they give the assurance of many years of use. Upper jimping, a notched palm rest, was made along the entire length of the backspacer. Carbon Fiber insert in the front of the handle. A single-position (right) titanium deep-carry clip allows you to carry the knife discreetly in your pocket in tip-up position (blade tip up). Hidden lanyard hole in the back, a hole for threading a safety or decorative cord.
Case - included zippered soft case with the manufacturer's logo for safe storage and transportation of the folder.
