|Hinderer Eklipse Harpoon Spanto
RICK HINDERER KNIVES :: USA MADE
EKLIPSE GEN 2 HARPOON SPANTO FLIPPER
The Eklipse is known the world over as one of the toughest tactical folders regardless of your mission.
Rick's focus when designing the Eklipse was a no-nonsense tactical tool ready for the simplest cutting tasks to high-speed low drag operations.
The Eklipse has a CNC flat ground blade that offers the best of both worlds offering maximum cutting potential in a blade that has a durable tip for prying. The blade thickness is a full 0.165" and can handle the toughest cutting chores.
The blade locks up on a solid 0.25" diameter thumb stud which is press fitted into the blade. This makes for a very strong lockup as there is no loosening of the thumb stud which can happen with two piece designs.
The fact that the thumb stud locks up against the frame adds an incredible amount of strength to the sideways torque of the blade as the sideways stresses are being stopped by the whole handle side, thus relieving the stress that would normally be put on the pivot.
CRUCIBLE CPMŪ 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.
