Description: Jason Clark is a part time, sole authorship knifemaker from O'Brien, Florida. Jason has been employed full time as a Florida Law Enforcement Officer since 1997 and knows what it takes to make a high functioning knife that is meant to be used. He even offers lifetime free sharpening for any knife he has made!
The blade is made from CPM-154 stainless steel and features a satin finish in the grinds and a hand rubbed satin finish on the flats. 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. A choil allows you to choke up for delicate cutting tasks.
The blade is perfectly centered with smooth action. It uses the IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System) pivot. This mechanism, which was originally designed to fit balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with no blade play.
The front handle scale is made from Thunderstorm Kevlar. This rare and exciting variation on lightning strike carbon fiber combines brass wire woven into Kevlar strands. The front scale is dovetailed to a zirconium bolster. Zirconium is a transitional metal that is primarily mined in South Africa and Australia. It is highly resistant to corrosion and scuffing. The lock side is stonewashed titanium. It has been skeletonized to reduce weight. The titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
