Jim O'Young - after a 20-year career as a mechanical design engineer in the electronics industry in Silicon Valley, Jim began to pursue his passions: sport shooting and the design and manufacture of innovative small arms and knives. Jim applied his knowledge and experience to the SpeedTech Synergy project using SolidWorks, a state-of-the-art CAD tool for 3D solid modeling. It was the first knife created using this technology and featured several design elements that had never before been used in a serial folder: an ergonomic, fully 3D digitally sculpted handle material surface made from a single solid block of material, a floating bearing system and a button lock with enhanced interlocking geometry. Synergy was ahead of its time and was awarded Most Innovative American Design at the 1999 Blade Show.
Nitro-V, a new chrome-based stainless martensitic 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 in the 58-62HRC range, 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 - trailing point type, finished with a scratch-masking Stonewashed finish. 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. The thickness of the blade provides high strength while the high, flat grind gives excellent cutting edge geometry and extreme cutting performance. Ceramic ball bearings support the opening of the blade with a quick flipper flipper (index-finger flipper). When opened, the flipper forms a mini-guard to prevent the hand from slipping on the blade. The whole thing is locked with a modern Nested Liner Lock.
Handle - black G10, fiberglass facings pressed with resin, with a beautiful pattern of concentrically spreading circles. Chamfered edges of the covers eliminate sharp edges for comfort and improve grip confidence. The backspacer is made of the same material as the handle grips. The pivot 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).
Case - included zippered soft nylon case with the manufacturer's logo for safe storage and transportation of the folder.
