Description: When it comes to making big knives that work for a living, there is none better than Mikkel Willumsen. As a full-time custom knifemaker from Copenhagen, Denmark, Mikkel’s style, which he calls "Urban Tactical" has gained a lot of notoriety. This knife is a Hummer built like a tank.
The blade is CPM154 stainless steel -- one of the "super-steels." This powdered metallurgical steel has a particularly small grain structure, making it take an extremely keen edge and hold it! The differentially finished blade has a stonewash finish in the hollow grind and a satin finish in the flats and fuller. The blade is a stout pseudo-tanto shape with aggressive geometry. A distinguishing feature of this knife is the way the blade opens and locks at a canted angle. This gives it a crescent shape rather than pointing straight out from the handle. The unique shape offers both an ergonomic pistol grip and an excellent reverse grip. This knife uses ball bearings ensuring silky smooth opening and a perfectly centered blade. A flipper offers one-handed operation, as well as acting as a hilt in the open position.
The handle is comprised of two materials. A bronze anodized titanium frame is the backside -- which doubles as the framelock. The opposite side features black G-10. The handle is nicely contoured for a secure, comfortable grip. A titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
A tremendously lightweight knife for its size, yet overbuilt for serious use!
