Description: This special Shadow Hawk folder by Mastersmith Mike Vagnino was the first Shadow Hawk ever created! Mike built this model for a customer who was looking for a lightweight, but heavy duty knife. The name comes from the customer's old call sign from the military. Mike loved the result so much, the Shadow Hawk became one of his flagship models! This knife has been in a private collection since it was first made. It is in new condition and has never been used to cut. By all appearances, Vagnino could have made it yesterday.
The satin finished blade is made from ultra rare Vanax stainless steel made by Uddeholm in Austria. With Vanax, nitrogen replaces carbon as the martensite initiator in the hardening process. It is made from Rapid Solidification Powder (RSP) to reduce the sizes and quantities of unfavorable solidification structures. Nitrogen forms extremely small and hard vanadium nitrides, enabling a great combination of wear resistance, edge retention, and toughness. The blade can be easily flicked open using the hole in the blade.
The handle is made from bead blasted titanium with a carbon fiber front scale. The frame lock ensures a sturdy lock up. A partial carbon fiber backbar offers strength, but keeps the knife very light. The pierced titanium pocket clip is mounted for right-handed, tip-down carry.
This folder will make a great addition to any collection or feel right at home in your pocket!
