Gitano Green Canvas, universal folding knife by E.D.C. The fruit of collaboration between knifemaker Gudy van Poppel and TFG (Tools For Gents) and Italian LionSteel. Gitano's idea was to create a modernized version based on old southern European folding knives, using innovative technology and high quality materials. What one likes about traditional knives are the elegant lines and large blades in relation to the handle.
Design by Gudy van Poppel, began his career as a blacksmith, making blades for several decades. In the mid 90's he learned to forge his own damascus steel. Gudy manufactures all the parts for his knives, including screws or washers. He finishes his designs with natural materials like mammoth or walrus tusks and exotic woods.
Niolox - a tool steel with good edge holding and high strength. Hardened in the range of 58-63 HRC. It is characterized by aggressive cutting and good impact strength. The name comes from the element niobium (Nb), one of the best carbides, which contributes to the wear resistance of the steel. Niolox contains 0.7% of it. Easy to sharpen with moderate corrosion resistance, it contains 8.5% chromium. Manufactured by Lohmann steelworks in Germany.
SlipJoint - "no lock" non-locking mechanism used in folders. Uses spring pressure on a flat notch on the back of the blade to hold the blade open during use. Slip Joint holds the blade in both folded and unfolded positions. No excessive force is required to fold/unfold the knife.
Blade - with a wide Clip Point profile blade provides excellent cutting edge geometry. Plain blade has a Flat Grind, which perfectly presents the satin finish of the blade.
The handle is slim with an ergonomic grip. Decorated with bolster and liners made of titanium 6AI4, to which Micarta Green Canvas liners were attached. Folder is equipped with a right-side compact clip that allows you to carry the knife in tip-up position.
