The XYZ is a new folding knife with original concept due to his opening and his locking system. Secure due to his internal conception limiting the kinetics of the blade to strictly necessary, no matter wich active or passive situation. It is protected by a patent to prove his originality.
The choice of the material is made without compromise (AU4G,7020 for the handle, 440C and Damascus on order for the blade). Grind and finishing are hand made. The heat treatment is subcontracted to a specialised company. Each knife is numbered and can be personalized with option, donít hesitate to ask for.
