This knife is meant for everyday carry and for taking care of various minor tasks. From being able to cut cardboard to making feather sticks, this knife can do it all. Featuring a S30VN steel blade that has been stone washed, the blade shape is modified slight recurve drop point blade. The dual thumb studs are blackened steel and are highly textured for secure grip when opening the knife. The handle scales are made of textured G10 and the knife has stainless steel liners and liner lock design with a lanyard hole.
The back of the handle features stainless steel barrel spacers, and there is an ambidestrous black skeletonized carry clip that allows for ambi tip up carry only. The other unused side features a place holder and extra screw that sits flush with the rest of the handle.This blade features phosphor bronze bushings and adustable tension screw. Please check your local and state laws and regulations regarding the ownership, use, and carry of folding blade knives. CPM S35VN is a quality stainless steel that is part of Crucible Industries SxxV series. CPM identifies the steel as having been made through Crucible Industries CPM process, offering an improved outcome over that of conventional melting practices. The letters S, V, and N refer to the terms stainless, vanadium, and niobium, respectively. The number thirty-five has no significance other than to differentiate between S30V steel.
S35VN steel is composed of 1.4 percent carbon, 14 percent chromium, 3 percent vanadium, 2 percent molybdenum, and. Carbon is the most essential element in the hardness of steel; the higher the carbon content, the harder the knife is. When combined with other alloys including chromium and vanadium, carbides are formed which are harder than just the carbon alone. This carbon content is very similar to that of the S30V type, which contains 1.45 percent carbon. With the newer steel, however, a small bit of a carbide called niobium was introduced in the place of some of the steels vanadium content, an innovative and critically altering change that sets S35VN steel apart from its predecessor and many other steels.
The niobium, combined with the carbon, makes this steel 15 to 20 percent tougher than S30V. Despite the high level of toughness in this steel, which usually diminishes a steels wear resistance, this steel does not lose out on a superior resistance to wear and chipping. Combined with carbon, the niobium carbides make the steel more effective in providing resistance to wear and edge chipping than if it were more dependent on chromium, which is the case with many other steels. The resulting edge holding ability of this steel is remarkable, ensuring S35VN steel to be a long lasting one.
Vanadium, as well, is essential to balance S35VNs toughness with its wear resistance. Not only does it increase strength and toughness, but it also promotes fine grain structure and forms hard carbides that dramatically intensify edge holding. Molybdenum is yet another key component of this steels wear resistance, as the harder the steel is, the stiffer it becomes. Molybdenum combines with carbon to make hard carbides that take that problem out of the equation. For these reasons, S35VN steel offers a superior edge retention over conventional high chromium steels such as 440C and D2 steels.Despite being less reliant on chromium, the carbide is still crucial for the high quality performance of the steel. Chromium is a critical ingredient to increase a steels stain resistance, and despite not being on par with niobium and vanadium in terms of wear resistance, chromium still helps add to a steels wear resistance, and is still every bit as important as S35VNs other ingredients.
