Smock Smooth G-10 CPM 20CV Exclusive
C240G OUT OF STOCK
This knife was produced for and available exclusively through KnifeJoy (www.KnifeJoy.com) and their sales channels.
Based on a knife designed by custom knifemaker Kevin Smock, the Smock is a utilitarian folding knife that incorporates a clever variation of Spyderco's patented Compression Lock® mechanism. Unlike most versions of this lock, which are released by applying lateral pressure directly to the knife's stainless steel liner, the Smock has a button built into the obverse (front) side scale. Pushing the button releases the lock and makes one-handed operation of the knife even simpler and easier.
This Exclusive version of the Smock proudly includes all the defining features of this design, but elevates them with an elite blade steel and polished black G-10 handle scales. The hollow-ground, satin-finished blade of this knife is precision machined from CPM® 20CV—a highly wear resistant, powder metallurgy stainless steel. This state-of-the-art material is unique in that it contains a high volume of vanadium carbides and the highest amount of chromium of any vanadium-rich stainless steel currently available. This potent combination of elements gives it a remarkable combination of high wear resistance, superior corrosion resistance, good impact toughness, and excellent polishability. These properties are further enhanced by the powder metallurgy process, which ensures a very fine grain size and uniform distribution of the alloys throughout the steel.
The other defining characteristic of this knife is its handle, which features smooth black G-10 scales that accentuate its sleek design. A polished stainless steel clip stands in contrast to the polished scales, offering a choice of left or right-side tip-up carry.
A truly distinctive expression of one of Spyderco's most dynamic models, this Exclusive Smock folder is destined to become a highly prized collector's item.
