Description: This Shadow Hawk folder by Mastersmith Mike Vagnino has a tremendous sense of presence. This full size folder is perfect for heavy duty cutting applications.
The blade is formed from satin finished Carpenter's CTS-XHP stainless steel. This US-made steel is a new air hardening, high carbon, high chromium, corrosion resistant alloy. At Hrc 62-64, it will have exceptional edge holding!
The blade easily fires open using the ambidextrous flipper mechanism. The blade has smooth action with no blade play thanks to the ball bearing pivot.
Mokume gane bolsters forged from brass and copper meet nicely with lightning strike carbon fiber scales. This variation of carbon fiber was originally developed for the military for fighter jets to redirect lightning while flying through storms. Lightning strike carbon fiber is among the hardest to find knifemaking materials. Copper stands are woven through the carbon weave, nicely complementing the mokume gane bolsters. The scales are set on titanium liners that surround a partial bead blasted titanium backbar. The pivot, screws, and pocket clip have been anodized bronze to match the scales and bolsters. The pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-up carry.
Excellent work throughout!
