BLADE: Just about 4 inches of premium USA Made CPM-20CV stainless steel is executed in a classic, utilitarian Clip Point profile. This gives the user a bit of an upswept tip great for skinning, slicing and piercing tasks. It has a straight plain edge with ambidextrous thumb studs for deployment. A blade Diamond-Like Carbon or DLC coating offers a durable, corrosion resistant and discreet finish. It locks up rock solid using Benchmade's patented AXIS Locking mechanism for right or left handed
HANDLE: The great ergonomics of the Crooked River are perfect for extended cutting but this Gold Class is a show piece with Vinland pattern Damasteel bolsters and Unidirectional Carbon Fiber scales over hand polished and jeweled liners along with a blue "Cracked Ice" titanium backspacer. The construction is rounded out with sapphire blue PVD pivot ring and hardware.
CPM 20CV: CPM 20CV is a highly wear resistant, powder metallurgy stainless tool steel, an analog to Bohler's M390, and offers some of the best corrosion resistance and wear resistance in combination with a relative ease of sharpening. These properties along with a working hardness in the low 60s HRC make 20CV a prime choice among custom and production makers.
LIMITED VERSION: Gold Class version of the modern classic Crooked River folding knife from Benchmade Knives HUNT Line. Limited to 500 Pieces.
