Centofante 3 Folding Knife -
The Centofante 3 has a thin profiled, lightweight FRN handle. Two channels are furrowed out of the handle for better grip and Palladium silver Spyderco bug is inlayed into its surface. For added security and convenience the back lock is positioned midway on the spine and David Boye Dent is cut from the locking lever. The VG-10 blade has both a hollow grind and swedge grind with non sharpened spine serrations (jimping) to hold the thumb steady when cutting. A black steel pocket clip positions for tip up and down, right hand carry.

VG-10 Stainless Steel -
VG-10 has Carbon (C) content between 0.95-1.05, Chromium (Cr) content between 13.0-15.0, Molybdenum (Mo) content between 0.2-0.4, and contains less than 0.25 of Nickel (Ni). During forging, Mo and Cr forms hard double carbide bonds which help improve the abrasion and corrosion resistance of the steel. It has a hardness of 58-61.

Hollow Ground -
The ground surface of the blade is concave and used to create a fine cutting edge.

Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon (FRN) -
A nylon polymer mixed with glass fiber that is then injected into a mold for making lightweight knife handles.

David  Boye Dent -
Custom knife maker David Boye removed a small arc or dent of metal from the lock bar lever of his knives. This removed piece lessened the possibility of gripping the handle hard enough to depress the lock and accidentally unlock the blade while using the knife.

Tip Up and Tip Down -
Refers to which direction the folded knife if positioned by its pocket clip. When closed and clipped in a pocket, whichever direction (up or down) the blade's tip sits defines if it is termed tip up or tip down.

"This is a phenomenal knife for an everyday carry blade. It comes very sharp out of the box. I carry this knife as my primary EDC because it is light weight, perfect size, great overall ergonomics, locks extremely tight, and buries pretty deep in ones pocket. The blade is a perfect size and really allows you to apply it to practical use, I wouldn\uFFFDt recommend this as a primary defense blade, but that it not what it is intended for in my opinion (not to say it couldn\uFFFDt protect one\uFFFDs life if necessary). I carry this knife with me every day and have been using it for at least 6 months and the blades still sharp. I would recommend this blade to anyone as it is perfect for practical use and a great EDC."
