Premonition 1163K Veff Serrated Drop Point Blade Folding Knife -
This black bladed every day carry features a precisely angled flipper for extra fast one hand blade opening. Because of the flipper, the knife does not need either thumb studs or nail nicks for opening.
The frame is a lightweight open build of hand-contoured, layered blue and black G10, with a stainless steel strip lock inlaid into a machined relief in one handle frame. The frame is curvilinear to fit the hand, and is amply skeletonized with nine lightening holes on the other frame. The black Zytel back spacer is forward on the handles, allowing maximum blade length for this length of handle.
The 3.25" drop point blade is premium 8Cr14MoV stainless steel with a high hollow grind. It features a black oxide coating with combination Razor-Sharp and our patented* Veff Serrated edge, which gives superior cutting through rope, webbing and canvas.
The stainless steel strip liner and removable pocket and gear clip are blue titanium nitride coated to match the blue G10 layer in the handles. < br>
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.
Chinese steel with similar performance characteristics to AUS 8. An excellent value priced steel for its performance.
Black Oxide -
is a conversion oxide coating formed on the metal surface as a result of a chemical reaction of the metal atoms with an oxidizing agent (air, aqueous solution, molten salts).
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.
