Description: This folder by Journeyman Smith Bruce Bingenheimer began as a design by Canadian knife designer Lorien Arnold. The pattern has become one of Bing's most requested designs.
The 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. A slight thumb ramp provides a sure purchase.
The scales are marbled carbon fiber. These are dovetailed to zirconium bolsters for a perfect fit. The pocket tip (mounted for tip-up carry), and pivot are also formed from zirconium. 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 and surround a carbon fiber backbar.
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!
Exceptional work throughout!
