Description: Strider Knives is an American owned and operated company, whose goal is the evolution of Problem Solving Tools. Around the globe, people stake their lives on Strider's tools; because of this, they spare no expense when designing and manufacturing their products. Using only the finest materials and latest technology, Strider Knives continues to set the pace in cutting geometry, function and durability.
The Strider SMF is the largest folder of the Strider Knives family with a 3 3/4 inch long blade and 9 inch total open size. Though it is a full sized, strong built folder, at just over 6 oz, it is remarkably light to carry. If you are looking for a tough, reliable frame lock with a one-hand open and close, then the Strider SMF is the knife for you.
The half-and-half construction incorporates a titanium lock-side with a G10 single scale. This hybrid construction style lets you have the best of both worlds -- the firm lockup of a framelock with the light weight and grip quality of a G10 handle. The handle incorporates pronounced finger grooves to help you index your grip, and it flares out towards the butt-end to provide a good grip without any backward hand sliding. The titanium pocket clip is mounted for tip-up carry.
The blade is made from premium S35-VN stainless steel which is proven to hold an edge for a very long time.
The Strider SMF pivot screws are oversized for high strength and durability. Handles are screwed together using oversized Torx screws for a very tight fit. Finally, the handle spacer is integral to the G10 scale. It is not a separate piece but rather, machined out of the G10, so the spacer is not a separate piece like with other folders. This extra work ensures that the Strider SMF is a folder that will hold up to hard use!
The Strider SMF is a great heavy duty full-sized knife!
