Grzegorz "Kombou" Grabarski - Polish graphic designer, photographer and talented designer, the main creator of knife designs at Bestech Knives. Known for his unconventional ideas, breaking the stereotypes of knife design. A long collaboration with Bestech has resulted in exquisitely crafted knives made of the finest materials, with a unique look.
CPM S35VN - an American martensitic high-alloy stainless steel with a hardness of 59-61 HRC, one of the best blade steels. Designed to provide better strength compared to CPM S30V, while keeping corrosion resistance at the highest level. Manufactured by US Crucible Industries using the particle metallurgy / Crucible® Particle Metallurgy (CPM) method. The CPM process creates a very homogeneous, high-quality steel with excellent dimensional stability, grindability and ductility compared to steels produced by conventional methods. The chemical composition has been balanced so that it is composed of 0.5% niobium carbides (Nb) along with 3.0% vanadium (V) and 14.0% chromium (Cr) carbides. Replacing some of the niobium carbides with vanadium carbides makes the steel about 15-20% harder than S30V without sacrificing wear resistance, and it is also easier to machine and polish. The improved strength of CPM S35VN also provides better resistance to edge chipping.
Blade - wide, Drop Point type with Dark Stonewashed finish masking minor scratches. The expansive belly converges toward 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 by means of a hole in the wedge (thumb hole). A section of the blade's back is covered with upper jimping, a notched thumb rest for easy control of the knife. The whole thing is locked with a proven and popular frame lock with a steel insert to prevent wiping of the lock face.
Handle - is two pieces of solid titanium 6AL4V. The chamfered edges of the covers eliminate sharp edges for comfort, and the fore finger groove improves grip security. Holes in the liners improve the knife's balance. The solid titanium backspacer to which the facings are attached guarantees the rigidity and strength of the entire construction. A single-position, right-handed titanium clip allows the knife to be carried in tip-up position, with the tip of the blade upward. In the upper part of the backspacer there is a hole for a belay or decorative cord.
Case - the knife is packed in a zippered nylon soft pouch with the brand's logo for safe carrying and storage of the folder.
