Building upon Colonial knife's long traditon of working with and honoring American knife makers, Colonial Knife partnered with Walter "Blackie" Collins one of the foremost tactical knife designers and blade grinders in America and an member of the "Cultery Hall of Fame" to produce a line tactical knives. Together, Blackie Collins decades of experience in blade grinding and innovative designs and fixed blade knives and Colonial Knife's production experience has created one of the most unique, striking and functional blades available. Through the collaboraton, Blackie Collins and Colonal Knife have won awards and continue to drive innovation and functional knife designs. This folder features a "Quick-Flick" spring-assisted, high-end 440-A cutlery grade stainless steel with a Rockwell Hardness of 58-C showcasing Walter "Blackie" Collins tradmark and distinctive blade grinds.
The Quick-Flick with 440-A blade material and patented hardening technique, measures 3 -1/8 inches from the 4.25 inch handle, and cutting edge of 2-5/8 inches. The idea is “subdued” here, with digital camouflage finished on smooth aircraft aluminum scales, black screws, black pocket clip and blackened blade. No jimping, but the hollow-ground 7002 offers 1-1/8 inches of edge serrations and 58-C Rockwell hardness allows the blade to remain sharp longer than any on the market today.The guard tab stand above the liners, making it perfectly accessible. The handles’ edges are well rounded and the contours are very comfortable in the hand. The 3.75 ounce 7002 is also fully user-serviceable. The handle has a lanyard hole, and the removable clip comes installed for right-side tip-down carry and can be moved for left-side tip-up carry.
