Penguin is a medium size folding knife for everyday use.
Functional blade – solid steel
The blade comes out with an even slimline cut, which is characterised by smoothness of cutting and versatility of use. The sheeps foot style ensures maximum use of the most advanced point of the cutting edge, which in turn enables making precise cuts. The ridging on the back (jimping), allows one to easily apply extra pressure with ones thumb on the cutting edge to the material. The D2 tool steel blade ensures efficient cutting and has a high abrasion resistance.
The knife is opened with a double-sided pin (for right- and left-handed people). Smooth opening of the knife is ensured by copper washers enveloping on the line of the main axis of the knife (bearing at the point of connection of the blade with the handle). The knife has stable and durable protection against accidental closing when in use (liner lock).
The handle is lined with a durable material linek micarta with a anti-skidding and rough structure to ensure a stable grip. The micarta itself is resistant to moisture, temperature changes, most solvents and acids and therefore has a high resistance to mechanical damage. The handle has been profiled in a way that limits the risk of sliding your hand on the blade when it is in use, which reduces the risk of potential injuries.
A steel clip with the possibility of assembly on one or the other side of the handle ensures safe carrying in a pocket, attaching to a backpack , saddlebag etc. The hole above the clip has been designed to be used for attaching with a cord, string, paracord, strap, leash etc. This is a simple solution that makes it easier to remove your knife from your pocket, hang it around your neck etc. Of course, this is an additional precaution against losing the knife when the knife is carried or in use.
