Description: Bruce Bingenheimer was introduced to the forge by Mastersmith Ed Caffrey in 2006 and became a journeyman smith in 2010. After becoming well known as a forger, he began focusing on folders in 2012. Sadly, Bruce passed away on March 9, 2018. He will be dearly missed. This Chiron gent's tactical folder shows Bingenheimer's work at its finest. It has been in a private collection and is in new condition. It has never been carried or used.
The blade is formed from premium CPM154 stainless steel. This powdered metallurgical steel has exceptionally small crystalline structure, ensuring optimal edge holding. A hand rubbed satin finish lends an heirloom quality. The thumb ramp moves into a long raised clip. The blade is easily deployed one-handed using the discreet ambidextrous flipper toggle. The blade rotates on caged bearings, ensuring the knife will maintain super-smooth action throughout its life!
Premium curly koa wood scales are set on textured, bronze anodized titanium liners. The warm dark wood has a particularly tight curl. The bolsters ore dovetailed to the wood scales for a perfect fit. Zirconium is a transitional metal that is primarily mined in South Africa and Australia. It is highly resistant to corrosion and scuffing. The screws and pivot ring are bronze anodized to match the liners. The zirconium pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
Excellent fit and finish throughout!
