First there was copper. Then there was brass. Now, the SMKW Exclusive Artisan Cutlery Bronze series has arrived, and we believe they are going to be huge! These big chunks of pocket jewelry are both gorgeous and budget friendly. Prices range from $50 for the Artisan Shark, Osprey, and Tradition to $60 for the Artisan Proponent.
Each knife in this series features a D2 steel blade with a stonewash finish. As always with Artisan knives, the opening action on these beauties is fast and furious because they have a ceramic bearing pivot system. All models except the Proponent open with a flipper. The Proponent gives you the option of using either the flipper or ambidextrous thumb studs.
They all have an ambidextrous, tip-up pocket clip. The Shark has an anodized blue steel liner. Both the Proponent and Osprey have an anodized orange pivot collar.
