Description: Trevor Burger is a second-generation knifemaker following in the steps of his father, Fred. He has an eye for detail. His knives have exceptionally smooth action and clean, no-nonsense designs. The EXK was originally developed by Trevor's father in conjunction with Mike Skellern, and continues to be one of the most popular folders that he makes.
The blade runs on caged ceramic ball bearings and has silky-smooth action. Generally bearings are made either from tool steel or from stainless steel. Stainless steel can wear away, resulting in uneven action over time. Tool steel bearings can oxidize making the action rough. Ceramic bearings are the best of all worlds. Extremely hard and wear resistant, they are also inert and will not oxidize. It is easily opened single-handed using the front flipper. This mechanism is designed to be flicked open with the thumb or index finger. The blade is perfectly centered and has incredibly smooth, drop shut action.
The blade is high performing stainless damascus forged by Damasteel in Sweden. This stainless damascus is created using powder metallurgical manufacturing to provide excellent edge retention and unmatched beauty. The damascus is deeply etched to show off the pattern. The blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge.
Copper Dark Matter FatCarbon scales are set on titanium liners. The scales meet perfectly with dark titanium bolsters in a complex curve. Timascus titanium damascus pivot collars surround the titanium pivot. The Timascus pocket clip is mounted for right-side, tip-up carry. Excellent work throughout!
