Knife SKIF Defender II belongs to the new generation of one of the best models of the 400th series. The shape and purpose of the knife remains unchanged — it is an extremely "working" tool that fully covers daily needs, and will also be just the way during outdoor activities. The new 9Cr18MoV steel with a large amount of carbon and chromium became somewhat harder and more resistant to corrosion than the 8Cr13MoV predecessor.
Direct descents begin from 1/3 of the butt, on its upper part there is a false edge and a small notchon the stop under the thumb. The shape of the blade is a combination of Drop-Point and S-shaped blade, due to which it has the corresponding advantages. An elongated cutting edge improves the cutting properties, and a sufficiently powerful front part with a false blade will demonstrate excellent stitching qualities. Stonewash blade processing will protect the knife from minor scratches or scuffs that periodically occur with frequent use. The knife opens with the help of a sub-fingered flipper, creating a kind of palm rest, which is useful during a power puncture. As an additional way to open the knife, you can also consider the subdigital opening. 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 folding knives. 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 with a lanyard, under which a hole is provided. In general, the new generation of Defender knife is a fresh look at the time-tested "classics".
