Brand new, direct from Heretic Knives, USA.
Blade: The sleek, saber ground, Tanto blade combines powerful cutting performance with an elegant look. High quality, American CPM-S35VN stainless steel was chosen for its balance of edge retention, corrosion resistance and toughness. The blade has an acid etched and tumbled, “Battleworn” finish that offers a very rugged look that hides wear from use and is discreetly non-reflective. It deploys via a double action automatic mechanism for fast, smooth operation. Simply press the stainless steel slide up to open and then back down to close.
Handle: Milled, hard anodized aluminum offers just under 3.5 inches of handle, long enough for a solid grip with no excess real estate for ease of carry. Contoured handle have smooth chamfered edges paired with strategically placed scallops for a perfect blend of comfort and traction. The front and back of the handles are sterile with company, model and serial number markings on the spine. The handles are completed with titanium Torx hardware visible on the back, integral lanyard hole and hardened steel glass breaker inset in the pommel.
Carries via a right hand, tip-down, stainless steel deep carry pocket clip.
CPM S35VN: was designed to offer improved toughness over CPM S30V. It is also easier to machine and polish than CPM S30V. The inclusion of Niobium allows for the formation of niobium carbides along with vanadium and chromium carbides. Substituting niobium carbides for some vanadium carbides makes CPM S35VN about 15-20% tougher than CPM S30V without any loss of wear resistance. CPM S35VN’s improved toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping.
