AUS-8 - a molybdenum-vanadium Japanese stainless steel. Often referred to as the equivalent of 440 steel. The two steels are similar in composition, but AUS8 is harder (hardened to 59 HRC) so it dulls more slowly, without losing its excellent resistance to harsh weather conditions (moisture, water work). Rich in 0.75% carbon (C), 0.25% vanadium (V) and 0.30% molybdenum (Mo), containing min. 13% chromium (Cr). Due to its high hardness, it is suitable for manufacturing cutting tools, knife blades and medical instruments. It has an excellent balance of strength and corrosion resistance, and an excellent value for money. Made in Aichi Steel's Japanese steel mills.
Blade - drop point type finished with a scratch-masking Stonewash method. The generous belly extends the length of the cutting edge in relation to the length of the blade converging towards the needle-sharp tip of the knife, combined with a high, flat grind (Flat Grind) gives excellent cutting properties. The blade is set on Teflon pads supporting the work of the opening mechanism, thanks to which the folder can be efficiently unfolded with the push of a button. On the back of the upper jimping wedge, a notched thumb rest. The whole is locked with a proven button lock.
Handle - beveled facings of black aluminum. The surface of the covers has been partially covered with a fine texture that improves grip security. Simple, solid construction gives you the assurance of many years of use. The back of the handle features a lanyard hole, which is a hole for a safety or decorative cord. A single-position right-side metal clip allows you to carry the knife discreetly in your pocket in the tip-up position (blade tip up).
