We hope to ignite your passion for high-tech folders with this new knife series. That's why we call it the Ignitor. It raises the bar for all value-priced folders, by using premium blade steel, layered G10 scales, and patented features including Assisted Opening, a unique knife safety and our special serrations. We challenge you to find a knife of this quality for the money. Consider these features:
First the blade. It's a modifed drop point design with a high hollow grind. We use premium 8Cr14MoV stainless steel. You have your choice of a Razor-Sharp edge or combination Razor-Sharp edge with our patented Veff Serrations, which are superior for fast cutting of cord, netting and vegetation.
The frame uses our rigid InterFrame build with stainless steel liners, one locking, and layered G10 scales, textured and CNC machined to aid grip. The deep finger choil and pommel fit the hand nicely. The flat cross-section makes for comfortable in-pocket carry.
The true breakthrough is our ability to combine our patented OutBurst Assisted Opening with the patent-pending Fire Safe mechanism. When closed, the blade is safely locked by the Fire Safe pin. It cannot be opened until the safety button on the end of the thumb stud is firmly depressed and the thumb stud is nudged outward. Then the blade springs open instantly for use. Yes, this is a design for right-hand opening, but it is the best integration of folder safety and fast access that we have ever seen in a sport and work folder. Caution: When closing the knife, always press firmly to fully close the blade, and be sure the Fire Safe pin locks into place securely with an audible "click".
On the tactical Ignitor T models, the blade receives a non-reflective dark gray titanium nitride coating, which provides maximum corrosion protection. The "T" models also feature black G10 scales.
All models include a removable stainess steel clip.
