Description: This Willem Steenkamp custom EDC is a fantastic utility flipper. The drop point blade and ergonomic handle are perfectly designed for the task at hand.
The 3-1/4 inch drop point blade is made from Bohler N690 stainless steel and features a satin finish in the grinds and a mirror polish in the flats. N690 is a super-steel created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds on to it. Increased toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge. Aggressive jimping and a large choil cutout allow you to choke up on the blade for precision cutting tasks. An ambidextrous flipper tab offers smooth, one-handed deployment.
The handle combines bead blasted titanium with a rare lightning strike carbon fiber inlay. This type of carbon fiber was originally designed for use on fighter jets to redirect electricity. Copper strands move through the carbon fiber weave. Lightning strike carbon fiber is among the hardest to find knifemaking materials. A sturdy framelock ensures perfect lockup every time. A G10 backbar keeps the knife light and fast. A matching titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry. This knife includes a lanyard with a blue anodized titanium bead, a zipper pouch, and a certificate of authenticity from the maker.
An excellent EDC to add to any collection!
