Description: Riaan Manser is a full-time knife maker from South Africa. Manser works under the brand name 3LegDog -- named for his pit bull cross dog which lost its hind leg when still a puppy. Manser and his dog spent many days and nights sitting along side each other in the knifemaking studio. Regretfully, his beloved dog passed away during the summer of 2018.
This A7 Front Flipper blade is hand ground premium Bohler M390 stainless steel, with a Rockwell hardness of 62. M390 takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds on to it due to its high concentration of vanadium and chromium carbides. Its unique powdered 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 hand satin finished blade features a high flat grind.
The blade runs on caged ceramic bearings made by Rausch Engineering. It is perfectly centered, has silky-smooth action, and is easily opened single-handed using the inobtrusive front flipper tab. It drops shut with no resistance. The smaller front flipper doesn't easily get caught on other things stored in your pocket.
The handle is black G-10 and features dyed and stabilized maple burl inlays on both sides. Bead blasted Gr6 titanium liners keep this full sized knife light yet strong. The backspacer is black G10. Raised, polished collars surround the pivot. The handle is completed with a bead blasted titanium pocket clip mounted for right-side, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
