Knife SKIF Sturdy II — a new generation of the popular model of the 400th series. This knife is a "classic" suitable for most tasks that arise not only with daily use, but also during a camping trip or other activity. The name of the knife is translated from English as «strong», which fully corresponds to its shape and design. In the new generation of
Sturdy, the 9Cr18MoV steel with a large amount of carbon and chromium became somewhat harder and more resistant to corrosion than the 8Cr-13MoV predecessor. Direct descents begin almost from the middle of the butt, on its upper part
there is a notch under the thumb. The knife can be called universal, since the Drop-Point shape will perfectly cope with both stabbing and cutting tasks. Stonewash blade treatment will protect the knife from minor scratches or scuffs that occur periodically during frequent use.
The knife opens with a peg and flipper, creating a kind of emphasis for the hand, which is useful during a power puncture. Thanks to the ball bearing system, the blade exit is smooth and does not require significant force when opening. The lock is an invariable Frame-Lock, by the way — one of the most reliable locks among foldingknives. A distinctive feature of the new generation of these knives is the presence of a sub-finger notch not only on the butt and handle, but also on the flipper and lock plate.
The handle is made of material G10, perfectly lies even in a wet hand or gloves. There is a clip, which, if necessary, can be removed and used by a lanyard, under which a hole is provided. In general, the new generation of the Sturdy knife provides a fresh look at the time-tested classic.
