CPM REX 45 - super high speed American tool steel enriched with large amounts of cobalt 8%, tungsten 6.25%, molybdenum 5.0% and vanadium 3.05%. The high cobalt content increases the hardness of the steel and improves the properties of other steel alloys. The addition of vanadium promotes the formation of vanadium carbides, which provide high wear resistance, fine grain size and increased strength. The steel has good wear resistance and impact toughness, making it suitable for difficult machining applications. Made by the crucible particle metallurgy process, it has good machinability and grindability. Manufactured by CPM (Crucible Particle Metallurgy) Process.
Compression-Lock - patented by Spyderco (made in USA) head locking mechanism. Extremely durable, provides extreme strength and ease of use.
Blade - Drop Point profile, satin finish. Plain blade is Full Flat Grind for excellent cutting-edge geometry with sharp tip. Enlarged 14mm round SpyderHole cutout (Spyderco patent) for quick knife opening. Long corrugated thumb rest upper jimping on the back of the blade and finger choil (undercut for index finger between handle and cutting edge) facilitate control of the knife.
Handle - profiled, matt anti-slip G-10 (durable plastic, resistant to high and low temperatures, chemicals). Solid metal hourglass clip with 4-way clip positions (up/down, right/left). In the back of the handle an enlarged hole for the safety cable.
Skeleton - reinforced with two stainless steel plates to which facings are attached with enlarged torx screws. This provides high strength with little weight of the knife. The open-backed design simplifies cleaning and maintenance of the folder.
