The blade is hollow-ground satin finished Crucible Steel CPM M4. Original M4 made its good name as a tool steel with high resistance to impact. Crucible's version incorporates their CPM powdered metal manufacturing process with M4 creating a superfine, consistent steel-grain structure heightening its already impressive impact resistance even more. Its modified drop-point blade also has a weight-reducing swedge located at the spine.
The handle is twill carbon fiber with a Michael Walker LinerLock for safe, secure lock up while adding a refined, gentlemanly appearance. Inside are two full-length internal liners adding rigidity to the handle that has screw- together construction for adjustments or cleaning. A four-way hourglass clip lets you choose to carry the folder; tip-up/tip-down, left/right handed.
For those not familiar with Gayle Bradley, he produces handmade folders and fixed-blades. He's a Texan who started making custom knives in 1988 and when customers discovered his handmades, his reputation mushroomed, tagging him as a knifemaker who focused on building exceptional knives for hard-use. We believe you will find our Spyderco collaboration impressive not only in its performance abilities but in its fine appearance as well.
