Rick Hinderer :: Half Track
TNK FREEDOM COLLECTION™:: CPM-20CV
The Half-Track may be modest in size, but its modesty ends there. This overbuilt frame lock folder is armed with a durable CPM-20CV blade with a satin finish and aggressive no-slip jimping. Textured titanium handle scales provide ample grip surface to ensure the knife stays firmly in hand during use.
CRUCIBLE CPM® 20CV
Hinderer Knives is using a unique tool steel made by the Crucible Particle Metallurgy Process. It is a martensitic stainless steel with a high volume of vanadium carbides for exceptionally good wear resistance.
CPM 20CV contains the highest amount of chromium of any high vanadium stainless steel currently available. The chromium rich matrix provides outstanding corrosion resistance.
The CPM process results in a finer, more uniform carbide distribution imparting improved toughness and grind ability to highly alloyed steels.
The CPM process also alloys for the design of more highly alloyed grades which cannot be produced by conventional steelmaking for the knife industry.
