Nitro-V a new chrome-based martensitic stainless knife steel introduced by New Jersey Steel Baron (NJSB). The manufacturer used the existing superior AEB-L knife steel and upgraded it with nitrogen and vanadium to improve edge performance and achieve high hardness and extreme corrosion resistance, especially crucial in the marine industry and humid environments. Nitro V can be used in diving knives because of its resistance to staining and corrosion. The recommended working hardness is between 58-62HRC, and it has very good impact strength compared to other steels. It is harder than stainless powder steels such as M390, Elmax and S35VN. Therefore, Nitro-V will be a good fit for knives that require good strength.
Nested Liner-Lock, a modification of the liner-lock by nesting the liner of the locking mechanism in the liner.
Blade - Reverse Tanto type opened with a front flipper, so it can be easily used by right and left-handed people. The small thickness of the blade combined with a high, flat grind gives excellent cutting edge geometry and extreme cutting performance. Ceramic ball bearings support the smooth operation of the blade's opening mechanism. On the back of the upper jimping wedge, a notched thumb rest. The entire blade is locked with a solid Nested Liner-Lock.
Handle - in ivory color. Made of G10, a composite material of fiberglass compressed with synthetic resin. Chamfered cover edges eliminate sharp edges for comfort and sure grip. An open-backed design fixed with steel spacer sleeves reduces weight and facilitates cleaning. The pivot axis is decorated with a stylized Civivi brand logo. A single-position, right-side deep-carry clip allows you to carry the knife discreetly in your pocket in tip-up position (blade tip up).
Comes with an elegant pouch for carrying/storing the knife, decorated with the company's logo.
