Description: Clyde Challenor is a skilled knifemaker from Durban, South Africa. He has been making knives since 2014. Francois Nell designs the knives and graphics while Clyde brings them to life with his tremendous machining skills. Clyde's intent is to make exceptional knives using only the best materials available. His attention to detail comes through in all his work.
The Hornet is an elegant front flipper that features a sturdy frame lock. The compact 3-1/4" blade and ergonomic handle are perfect for the task at hand. This is the smallest model that Clyde makes.
The blade is formed from satin finished M390 stainless steel, a super-steel created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds onto it due to its high concentration of vanadium and chromium carbides. Its unique powder metallurgical process also promotes a uniform carbide distribution and clean steel properties, making M390 a popular steel used in surgical cutting instruments and in applications requiring a high finish. It offers excellent corrosion resistance due to its high concentration of chromium. The blade is hollow ground for easy maintenance.
The handle is made from bead blasted 6Al4V titanium and features an ironwood inlay on the left side. The frame surrounds a barrel spacer that keeps the knife light, yet strong. The titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
The custom pivot can be adjusted using a standard flathead screwdriver.
Excellent work throughout!
