About presented Crowbar “Orange Fist II” knife
Durable steel as the core of the knife construction
Presented Crowbar is made of one piece of Vanadis 4 Extra steel. It is a full-tang knife. The steel used in knifemaking process is an extremely hard and durable material, resistant to overload, abrasion and chipping, known for its amazing sharpness. Due to its properties, steel is often used in the production of tactical knives intended for work in various, often extreme conditions. The knife has been coated with a black PVD titanium coating which additionally strengthens the steel and improves anti-corrosion properties. The coating has anti-reflective properties.
Grinds and blade shape for efficient cutting
The knife blade has been profiled in the drop point style. This design helps to make the best use of the really large blade. It should be noted that the slightly curved design of the knife (arc from the end of the handle to the tip of the blade) in combination with a properly profiled, undercut handle gives the whole a more aggressive character and, if necessary, allows you to better use the force put into a sweeping cut when chopping, for example, a larger piece of wood, etc. A curiosity in the execution of the knife is the innovative hollow grind. It is visible at first glance in the form of characteristic grooves on both the correct blade and the false blade. The concavity of the cut is very subtle and, in addition to the visual effect, is designed to support the cutting process (it reduces the effect of the material sticking to the blade and facilitates splitting of the material).
On the back of the blade there is a jimpig, which makes it easier to press the blade of the knife to the material being cut. This element enables precise cuts, makes it easier to guide the cutting edge along the material and helps with cuts that require pressure.
Durable ergonomic knife handle
The slender, neat oval of the handle fits perfectly and lies securely in the hand, its gentle profiling helps to prevent the hand from slipping onto the cutting edge. The rounded ridge protruding on each side of the handle makes the knife comfortable and secure.
The handles with an ergonomic, oval shape are made of a very durable G10 composite. G10 is resistant to moisture, temperature changes, most solvents and acids, has high resistance to mechanical damage. In the presented knife, the material of the covers has a rough pattern that prevents the handle from slipping in the hand. The handle covers have been screwed with steel screws just like the blade covered with a PVD coating. The screws complete the design of the knife, elegantly matching the black blade.
At the end of the knife handle you will find a hidden hole for attaching an additional cord, which can be used as a protection against dropping the knife during operation, or an additional gripper that facilitates removing the knife from the holster. Originally, it includes a paracord section with a shade matched to the design.
Kydex holster and various carrying options
The knife has a holster made of hand-formed kydex material, which is characterized by high impact and scratch resistance, characterized by low moisture absorption, resistant to various weather conditions and many chemicals.
The holster can be carried in several ways. We attach it to the belt with a webbing grommet made of durable nylon. Mounting on a belt, but also on MOLLE solutions is ensured by an optional Kydex buckle added to the set*. The holster is equipped with through holes that can be used optionally to attach the set to a backpack or a tactical harness element with a rope, string or paracord. Of course, you can use a supply of paracord with which the holster is wrapped (its color corresponds to the section next to the knife).
* The buckle designed by the knifemaker is compatible with MOLLE solutions. The cbuckle is installed by disassembling the module with the nylon grommet beforehand.
