Description: Mastersmith Mike Vagnino began his journey into knifemaking back in 1995, starting with a forging class from Karl Shroen. He continued his training under the watchful eye of Mastersmith Tim Hancock. He received his journeyman smith rating in 2001 and his Mastersmith rating in 2003. He strives to build beautiful artistic knives that also excel in performance.
This lockback folder is a perfect example of Mike's skill at knifemaking. The action is as smooth as it comes with perfect lockup. This blend of new technology with an old style folder is sure to be something you will enjoy!
The clip point blade is made from CPM-154 stainless steel with a hand rubbed satin finish. This powdered metallurgical steel has a particularly small grain structure, making it take an extremely keen edge and hold it while remaining tough and chip resistant. The blade can be easily opened using the right-handed nail nick. Mike's maker mark is stamped on the ricasso.
The titanium handle features an entropic finish. This is a finish that Vagnino developed in cooperation with Olamic Tactical. This creates a surface similar to titanium damascus. Screws throughout have been colored to match the handle. A lanyard can be added to the back of the knife to assist in pulling it from the pocket.
Exceptional work throughout!
