Titanium Frame Lock Karambit, a luxury folding karambit from the Italian company FOX. Combining the finest materials of titanium, carbon fiber and a blade of high performance Elmax steel coated with Cerakote™ black. Three quick opening systems Emerson Wave Opening, flipper and longitudinal cut in the blade.
Karambit - a type of knife that originated in Indonesia, with roots in Malaysia and the Philippines. It is characterized by a finger ring and sickle-shaped blade, which is characterized by great cutting efficiency. The Hawkbill mimics the way an eagle's claw or tiger's claw tears, piercing and cutting at the same time. Used as a working knife and for defense.
Emerson Opener (Emerson Wave) patented by Ernest Emerson located on the back of the blade hook that allows you to quickly open the blade when removing the knife from the pocket by hooking the edge of the pocket.
ELMAX - the highest quality modern powder tool steel of the third generation. It is characterized by high carbon and chromium content and, thanks to the metallurgical process, exceptionally fine grain structure and uniform carbide distribution. It provides extreme edge retention, high wear and corrosion resistance. Manufactured in Böhler-Uddeholm, Austria.
Cerakote ™ Black - a ceramic-based finish that can be applied to metals to improve a number of physical properties, including abrasion/wear and corrosion resistance. Matte non-reflective coating resists chemicals and impact.
Blade - aggressive Hawkbill type, rounded blade shape features tremendous cutting efficiency and speed. Plain blade with ultra thin tip and strongly curved edge. The oval cut in the blade increases the thumb support hump, ramp (Thumb jimping) for better control and multiple grip options. The entire blade is locked with a thick titanium Frame Lock leaf at the end of which a steel insert is mounted to prevent abrasion of the lock face.
Handle - asymmetrical, on one side deeply textured carbon fiber cover, on the other the same Carbon Fiber and a piece of solid titanium being the basis of the lock. The facings were screwed to the backspacer made of a single piece of titanium and finished with an enlarged polished head, the Back Ring. It facilitates rotating the folder around the finger, allowing to perform traditional techniques. Two-position titanium clip allows you to carry the knife in tip-up position.
Case - the folder is packed in a zippered soft elegant pouch with the manufacturer's logo for safe carrying / storage of the knife.
