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 Benchmade 810SBK Contego AXIS Lock folder has a reverse tanto CPM-M4 steel blade with a black Cerakote coating and partially serrated edge. Reversible deep carry tip-up carry pocket clip and carbide glass breaker. Osbourne design.
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.
