Description: The Gamma folder is designed by knife maker Ilya Pasumanskiy of Seattle, Washington. Based on Ilya's custom Gamma, this midtech was produced by WE Knives to his exact standards. It was then finished by hand and anodized by Ilya himself. Only 100 mid tech Gamma Flippers were made and this is #23.
The 4 inch tanto blade is ground from Bohler M390 stainless steel and features a satin finish. M390 is a super-steel created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds on to it due to its high concentration of vanadium and chromium carbides. Its unique powder 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 blade is hollow ground for an easy to maintain edge. Aggressive jimping and a choil allow a secure purchase even when choking up on the blade.
The blade is set on caged bearings and can be easily deployed using the ambidextrous flipper tab. Alternately, the blade cutout also allows the user to easily flick the blade out using their middle finger or open it using two hands.
The handle is made from machined and diamond textured titanium. The bead blasted titanium handle features a cutout frame lock that dramatically reduces the weight. The backbar is slotted so a lanyard can be added. The backbar, pocket clip, pivot, and hardware have all been anodized green. The hidden hardware titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
Included with the knife is a zipper pouch and a certificate of authenticity machined from brass and signed by Ilya.
