Description: In Chris’s opinion, Grant and Gavin Hawk are the most innovative design team in the industry. In early 2010, the Hawks showed Chris the concept of a new locking mechanism—one that Chris felt he could engineer and Chris Reeve Knives could manufacture. Chris Reeve knives is proud to present the result, the Ti-Lock.
The Ti-Lock mechanism was originally conceived as a means to isolate the lock from the body of the knife, in order to allow more design freedom for handle and frame. Chris Reeve Knives has utilized this by creating a knife with five keyhole cutouts, arranged in a sunburst along the handle's finger rest. Both the cutouts and the titanium contribute to keeping this knife amazingly light. This, combined with the knife's stonewashed finish and blue and bronze details, makes a stylish knife that is clearly not afraid of hard work. The high tech CPM S35VN blade will have exceptional edge holding and comes with a keen, razor sharp edge.
The Ti-Lock is an exercise in mechanical innovation and an illustration of a passion shared by Grant, Gavin and Chris. This passion is also shared by knife collectors - those who buy quality knives in appreciation of the design, quality and precision put into the product.
Pocket clip mounted for tip-up carry.
