Instead of a linerlock, this knife has a spring type lock that is like an AXIS lock. Here’s the difference, instead of placing the bar on the handle they’ve put it above the flipper tab. Now, it might seem like an awkward placement when you first get it in hand, but after a few flips this sucker has a fast and addictive action. It snaps open with authority and drops closed with the slightest of wrist flicks.
As always it has a 3.43” stonewashed D2 cleaver blade with flat grind. It has a blade thickness of 0.13” hardened to a 58-60 HRC. It rides on a ceramic ball bearing pivot and there’s a slight forward choil for a great grip, even when you choke up on the blade.
The G-10 or carbon fiber handles are mounted on stainless steel liners. It’s available in carbon fiber or textured black, green, or grey G-10. It has an anodized aluminum pivot color for a nice contrasting color. As always, it has an ambidextrous, tip-up pocket clip and lanyard hole. With a closed length of 4.72” and weighing about 6 ounces, it’s a solid chunk of a knife.
