Design by Molletta, designed by a well-known and respected Italian designer with many years of experience. Michele Pensato (a.k.a. Molletta), is distinguished by a new approach to the use of materials and experimentation in the application of heat treatment and the use of advanced software in knife design.
Sleipner - a versatile high-alloy chrome-molybdenum-vanadium tool steel with high wear and chipping resistance with a balanced alloy composition: chromium content of 7.8% (Cr), 0.9% carbon (C), molybdenum 2.5% (Mo) and vanadium 0.5% (V). It achieves a high hardness of 60-63 HRC. Manufactured at the Swedish Uddeholm steel mill.
Blade - Drop Point with clearly marked belly finished by Stone Washed method and coated with black PVD coating, cutting edge smooth (plain). The small thickness of the blade combined with a high flat grind (Flat Grind) gives excellent cutting edge geometry and extreme cutting performance. The IKBS ball-bearing system supports the smooth and seamless operation of the knife's opening mechanism with a fast index-finger flipper (flipper) when opened acting as a deicer. The whole thing is locked with the proven and popular liner lock.
ReF - (Removable Flipper System) located on the underside of the blade projection / flipper flipper assisted by Double Crown makes it easy to open the blade with one hand. It consists of a small lever (protrusion) that extends beyond the back of the handle when the head is closed. In the open position, the protrusion acts as a stinger, protecting the hand from slipping on the blade. In the folder, it is possible to unscrew the Removable Flipper System lever (unscrew the flipper fin, then insert the second screw included in the box) and open the blade with both hands. This is important in countries where there is a ban on one-handed opening blade knives in public places.
IKBS - (ball bearing system) allows fast, smooth opening of the blade.
Handle - steel liners along with 3D-machined, black G10 (pressure-pressed fiberglass with synthetic resin) liners are attached to a 6AI4V solid titanium spacer, the so-called backspacer (liner connector). A right-side compact deep-pocket wire clip allows the knife to be carried deep in the pocket (discreetly) in tip-up (tip-up) position. Exposed titanium head with lanyard hole, a hole for a rope can, as a last resort, act as a hammer or glass breaker.
