Design by Molletta, designed by well-known, respected Italian designer with many years of experience. Michele Pensato (a.k.a. Molletta), is distinguished by a new approach to the use of materials and experiments in the application of heat treatment and the use of advanced software in the design of knives.
Niolox - a tool steel with good edge holding and high strength. Hardened in the range of 58-63 HRC. It is characterized by aggressive cutting and good impact strength. The name comes from the element niobium (Nb), one of the best carbides, which contributes to the wear resistance of the steel. Niolox contains 0.7% of it. Easy to sharpen with moderate corrosion resistance, it contains 8.5% chromium. Manufactured by German Lohmann steelworks.
Blade - massive with Drop Point profile and thickness of 5 mm with clearly marked belly of the cutting edge. Satin smooth Plain blade with Full Flat Grind provides strength and tapering of the blade towards the tip reduces weight while improving the geometry of the cutting edge. On the back of the wedge upper jimping, notched thumb rest.
Handle - covered with convex, waterproof and non-slip Micarta grip covers. Contoured and 3D machined for better ergonomics, they provide a secure grip. Enlarged protrusion acts as a gut to protect the hand from slipping on the blade. Mounted with Torx T8 stainless steel screws, the liners can be removed to make an improvised spear knife.
Sheath - made of abrasion resistant, waterproof Cordura in black with additional pocket for flint or sharpener. The M.O.L.L.E. compatible mount allows the holster to be carried on the belt or on the armor in an upright position.
