The Gold Midi was designed by Jared Van Otterloo (JVO). This mid size version of the Gold Standard has a 3.3 inch blade -- easily capable of getting any task done -- yet the compact size makes it tremendously carry friendly. The blade is perfectly centered with silky smooth action -- easily opened with one hand using the discreet and ambidextrous flipper toggle. It uses the IKBS (Ikoma Korth Bearing System) pivot system. This mechanism, which was originally designed to fit balisong knives, uses ball bearings to create exceptional action with no blade play.
The raised clip point blade is formed from CTS-XHP stainless steel. This US-made steel is a new air hardening, high carbon, high chromium, corrosion resistant alloy. The blade is hand hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
Handle scales are formed from contoured carbon fiber, meticulously inlaid with blue/black carbon fiber. The custom pivot is surrounded by a terraced White Timascus pivot ring. Anodized titanium liners surround a carbon fiber back spacer. The heat colored zirconium pocket clip is mounted for right-side, tip-up carry.
Exceptional work throughout!
