This particular knife is one of Mark’s Tactical Folders – a beefy tough model called the Bull Pup – but it has some very nice upgrades from the standard model.
The handles are thick Black tight weave Carbon Fiber, these are milled to fit precisely to the fancy Mokume bolsters. Mark has taken the extra step of adding some incredible Filework to the and Backspacer as well as the spine of the blade.
The blade was hand forged by Mark and is made of a San Mai of 416 Stainless with a High Carbon W2 core. This is an extremely labor intensive method to create steel but it provides an amazingly strong blade with a Core that will take and hold a Razor edge. The Differential Heat Treat and Etch clearly shows the Hamon between the two steels. Wonderful balance for such a big blade.
The thick Titanium Liner is Anodized Gold to match the Mokume, the blade locks up early and tight! The thick Ti clip has also been Anodized.
This is an excellent value for such a tough hand made yet attractive knife.
