The Gold Mini was designed by Jared Van Otterloo (JVO). This smaller version of the Gold Standard has a 2.7 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. This special IKBS flipper uses ceramic ball bearings for the smoothest action
The raised clip point blade is hand ground CPM-154 stainless steel. An integral thumb rest makes choking up for detail-work easy and comfortable. 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 hand rubbed satin finish adds to the heirloom appearance.
The scales are 3D machined marble carbon fiber. A terraced Timascus titanium damascus pivot ring adds flash. Anodized titanium liners surround a carbon fiber back spacer. The black titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-side, tip-up carry.
Exceptional work throughout!
