Ignitor Knife, Partially Serrated -
The knife is the Ignitor Knife that features a 3.38" partially serrated modified drop point blade made of 8Cr14MoV stainless steel, .11" thick, with a Rockwell hardness of 58-59. The blade of this knife has a high hollow grind, a polished finish, OutBurst Assist and thumb stud with FireSafe mechanism for one hand opening. The black and green G-10 handle, 4.25" closed, is textured for secure grip, and comes with polished stainless steel liners and a liner lock. A removable stainless steel pocket clip is included with this knife. The Ignitor Knife has an overall length of 7.50" when open and weighs 3.5 ounces.
Serrated Blade -
A serrated blade has a cutting edge that has many small points of contact with the material being cut. By having less contact area than a smooth blade, the applied force at each point of contact is relatively greater and the points of contact are at a sharper angle to the material being cut.
Drop Point Blade -
This blade has a gentle, sloping convex curve to the point versus the concave curve of the clip blade. Being thicker, this blade point is stronger for heavier tasks. It stands up to abuse well, but isn't as effective for easy penetration.
Veff™ Serrations -
Many CRKT models feature exclusive patented serrations developed by Tom Veff for exceptionally fast, smooth cutting.
Chinese stainless steel tempered at the Rc56 to Rc58 range and used in the Tenacious, Persistence, and Byrd lines of knives.
Assisted opening mechanism, which instantly springs the blade fully open after you have opened the blade approximately 30 degrees.
Hollow Ground -
The ground surface of the blade is concave and used to create a fine cutting edge.
G-10 Laminate -
The TUFNOL range of high quality epoxy resin bonded glass fabric laminates offer very high mechanical strength and low moisture absorption, combined with excellent electrical properties, under both dry and humid conditions. They are rigid materials with good dimensional stability and good resistance to a wide range of working environments.
