DROP-POINT Drops off the spine to the tip. Tip height is typically below the center line on the blade. CPM-D2 TOOL STEEL (60-62HRC) This powder-metal version of conventional D2 steel benefits greatly from a smaller, more homogenous carbide structure than its counterpart, resulting in substantial improvements in toughness, wear resistance, and corrosion resistance. Grivory® Glass-filled thermoplastic composite known for being extremely light and durable. Widely used for automotive, industrial, and aerospace applications. AUTOMATIC “Autos” have a button or other actuation switch that mechanically fires the blade open without the user directly manipulating the blade.
