The MKM brand is represented by a polygonal logo that evokes the mountain panorama that is the backdrop for Maniago.

About presetnted Goccia
Premium steel blade
The blade of the knife is made of M390 powder steel. It is one of the few steels available on the market that are in the absolute top quality of materials used for the production of premium knives. Its best properties are obtained by proper hardening process, in which 3 stages must be carried out flawlessly: curing, cryogenic cooling (freezing) and tempering. A properly prepared blade from M390 is extremely resistant to overloads, remains sharp for an extremely long time (slow abrasion) and has excellent anti-corrosion properties.
The blade of the knife is made in the drop point style and has a satin finish and full flat grind.
Opening and lock
The opening of the knife is done through the flipper in the blade. Unfolding the knife is very free and smooth thanks to the fact that it is equipped with ball bearings. The knife has a stable and durable lock to prevent from accidental closure – liner lock.
Micarta handle and pocket clip
The handle scales are made of Green Canvas Micarta laminate. Micarta is resistant to moisture, temperature changes, most solvents and acids, has high resistance to mechanical damage.
