Eastwood Tiger OD Green Canvas Micarta, Stonewashed extremely effective, full size (full size)ny E.D.C. folder with a blade designed for aggressive use. Designed for users who seek the reliability of a fixed blade, but don't want to give up the compact size of a folding knife. The fruit of knifemaker Gudy van Poppel's collaboration with Italian brand Fox.
Gudy van Poppel started his career as a blacksmith, making blades for several decades. In the mid-1990s, he learned to forge his own Damascus steel. Gudy also manufactures all the parts for his knives himself, including screws and washers. He finishes his designs with natural materials like mammoth or walrus tusks and exotic wood.
High Speed D2 - a high-carbon, high-chromium high-speed tool steel heat-treated to 59-61 HRC. With a high 13.0% chromium (Cr) content, it offers greater corrosion resistance than most high-carbon steels. Combines strength, excellent edge holding and easy sharpening. Features high wear resistance due to high carbide content in the microstructure.
Blade - Clip Point with an aggressive shape and clearly marked belly finished with a scratch-masking Stonewashed finish. The massive blade combined with a high, flat grind (Flat Grind) gives excellent cutting edge geometry and extreme cutting performance. Ceramic ball bearings support the smooth operation of the blade's opening mechanism, which can be opened with a quick flipper flipper (index-finger flipper). When opened, the flipper forms a mini-guard to prevent your hand from slipping on the blade. The whole thing is locked with the proven and popular Liner Lock.
Handle - made of green Micarta (high-pressure pressed canvas with synthetic resin), beveled edges of the covers eliminate sharp edges, and the fore finger groove made on the front improves grip security. The facings are screwed to an intricately machined aluminum backspacer, they provide assurance of many years of use. Upper jimping, a notched palm rest, was made along the entire length of the backspacer. A single-position (right) steel deep-carry clip allows you to carry the knife discreetly in your pocket in tip-up (blade tip up) position. Hidden lanyard hole in the back, a hole for threading a safety or decorative cord.
Case - included zippered soft case with the manufacturer's logo for safe storage and transportation of the folder.
