The Eklipse is a design born with its own attitude different from my other designs such as the XM-18. I designed the Eklipse with more of a linear approach with regards to handle and blade metrics. With the blade deployed the line from the blade tip flows through to the center of the handle allowing the blade tip to sit centered in your grip. This allows for a really light comfortable feel when using the knife in any task. The double finger grooves and sloping underside of the handle combine to give the Eklipse an ergonomic grip. The thumb ramp with properly sized jimping ensures a solid grip when using the knife in a fencing type grip. As with my other folder models the new Eklipse has a steel lockbar insert and of course comes with my new Triway pivot on board!
The SMF folder in coyote G-10 is a prime example of the quality and craftsmanship you can expect from Strider Knives. The CPMS30V blade is flat ground and razor sharp with stonewash finish. The front is marked "STRIDER" and the back has the logo. Includes dual heat treated stainless steel thumb studs and oval thumb hole opener. The top of the knife features thumb ramp notching where the frame meets the blade spine for extra grip.
The handle features a "Gunner Grip" texture on the titanium frame lock and G-10 upper. GEN 2 MARSOC frame lock features lockbar stabilizer with jimping. The titanium pocket clip (tip up) is removable. The over-sized pivot adds to the robustness of this knife.
Jagdkommando is the name of the Austrian Armed Special Forces Operations group, an elite group.
The Microtech Jagdkommando is a unique knife that has been milled from a solid piece of stainless steel! The blade's three sharpened edges twist as they come to a point while the grooved faces feature drilled holes that flow seamlessly together. The hollow handle has a waffle texture and threaded end cap. This Jagdkommando is black finished.
To house the blade, Microtech developed an aluminum "sheath" cover that screws over the blade. The cover has a belt loop with model, manufacture date and serial number. This is the limited production version of the popular Marfione custom.
