Chris Reeve Ti-Lock Folder, CPM S35VVN Blade, Titanium Handle
In Stock Now! The Ti-Lock knife is a collaboration between the innovative design team of Grant and Gavin Hawk and Chris Reeve Knives. In early 2010, the Hawks showed Chris the concept of a new locking mechanism, one that Chris felt he could engineer and Chris Reeve Knives could manufacture. It has been a lack of capacity not a lack of desire that has precluded Chris Reeve Knives from producing Hawk Designs thus far. It is an honor to present the Ti-Lock.
The Ti-Lock mechanism was originally conceived as a means to isolate the lock from the body of the knife, in order to allow more design freedom for handle and frame. The Ti-Lock is completely ambidextrous, allowing equal left and right hand use.
The Ti-Lock is not an exercise in ultimate lock strength; it is an exercise in mechanical innovation and an illustration of a passion shared by Grant, Gavin and Chris. This passion is also shared by many of their customers--those who buy our knives in appreciation of the design, quality and precision put into our product.
This Ti-Lock has a stonewash finished S35-VN stainless steel blade and titanium handle. The pocket clip is bead blast finished. Check them out at OsoGrandeKnives.com.
