Chad Nichols Damascus - Damascus stainless steel with a unique Raindrop pattern. Made in the forge of renowned damascus manufacturer Chad Nichols. The blade, consisting of two different types of steel, was forged and put together in different ways to obtain this amazing pattern. It is characterized by high hardness in the range of 58-60 HRC.
Blade - Drop Point, Plain blade is derived with Flat Grind which gives excellent cutting edge geometry and extreme cutting performance. Frame-Lock reinforced monolithic 6AI4V titanium blade lock, one of the grip linings acts as a locking mechanism. Located on the underside of the blade, the IKBS-assisted protrusion / flipper makes it easier to open the blade. In the open position it serves as a lower guard / hilt protecting the hand from slipping off the handle. In the upper part, the characteristic milling used to open the knife with the Flipper and Thumb Discie removed.
IKBS - ball bearing system to improve the opening and closing of the knife. Allows smooth and fast opening of the blade.
Handle - left side, presentation, made of black Carbon Fiber (carbon fiber compressed under pressure with synthetic resin). The right side is 3D-machined solid titanium bolted to a CNC-milled titanium backspacer, which means that such a design is virtually indestructible. Thanks to the treatment, the titanium acquires a characteristic texture that improves grip security. A double-sided (left/right) 6AL-4V titanium clip allows you to carry the knife in tip-up (tip up) position. Above the clip is a lanyard hole, an oval hole for a cord.
