Plain Recurve Blade, Jim Wagner Reality Based Folding Knife -
The Boker Jim Wagner Tactical Knife is a professional tactical tool to defend owners with. After world famous knife fighting expert Jim Wagner trained Germany's top counterterrorist team, GSG9, in knife tactics, Boker asked him if he would design the ultimate tactical folding knife for police, military and security personnel. This knife has tactical features that no other folder has a gladius penetrating tip, a cutting kriss curve, two blood grooves in the blade, ergonomic finger grooves with anti slip texturing, and a thumb guide slide that guides the operators thumb to the thumb stud for immediate deployment. It has two lanyard holes for air, water and wilderness operations, and it comes in tactical subdued black. When the blade is retracted, the handle and exposed blade back is designed to be a tight impact weapon. To absorb the tremendous forces you can put to the knife, there is a solid lock back mechanism. Under the fiberglass reinforced plastic, there are two one mm stainless steel liners to strengthen the construction and to give the right weight to the hand. The blade is made o f 440C high performance stainless steel, which guarantees superior edge holding ability and corrosion resistance.
440C Stainless Steel -
This type of steel is a high chromium stainless steel with a terrific balance of good hardness and corrosion resistance. 440C takes a nice edge and is fairly easy to re sharpen. An excellent value priced steel for its performance.
A recurve is when the blade has something of an "S" shape in it, usually creating a big belly that helps the knife excel at slicing and chopping. The recurve also creates a bit of a forward angle on the edge allowing a regular drop point with a recurve to excel at draw cuts.
Lanyard Hole -
This is a hole to fit a lanyard, rope or carrying implement through.
Folding knife that has a lock release on the back of the handle.
