Description: The Roadhouse is a new collaboration between Canadian knife designer Lorien Arnold and Bruce Bingenheimer. The pattern is extremely comfortable in the hand and is sure to become one of Bing's most requested designs.
The clip point blade was formed from CPM154 stainless steel. This powdered metallurgical steel has exceptionally small crystalline structure, ensuring optimal edge holding. A hand rubbed satin finish lends an heirloom quality.
The blade is perfectly centered and has smooth action. The flipper makes it easy to open the knife with a simple flick. The blade rotates on caged bearings, ensuring the knife will maintain super-smooth action throughout its life!
The scales are formed from marbled carbon fiber. Rather than woven strands, this rare style of carbon fiber shows off the carbon's twisted side. Zirconium bolsters are dovetailed to the carbon fiber for a perfect fit. Zirconium is a new material to the knifemaking world. It is a transitional metal that is primarily mined in South Africa and Australia. Zirconium is highly resistant to corrosion and scuffing. Anodized and textured titanium liners keep the knife light and strong. The handle is completed with a matching zirconium pocket clip.
Exceptional work throughout!
