CRKT K455TXP Ken Onion Eros Gentleman's Tactical Folder, PlainEdge. Columbia River Knife & Tool® and noted knife designer Ken Onion bring you the Eros knife. This super lightweight knife features a premium 3" Acuto stainless steel blade and a bead blast finished titanium frame lock handle with pocket clip for easy tip-down carry.
The modified drop point blade has a high hollow grind, swedged top edge, and a high satin finish. Steel is premium Acuto, stainless, noted for its high chromium and molybdenum content and hardness. It is instantly opened by pressing the blade flipper with either hand. For safety while closed, the blade has a ball detent.
Even the best conventional blade pivot bearings have some degree of friction which resists initial movement, or "stiction." In contrast, the blade opening action is almost friction-free due to the IKBS ball-bearing system. This innovative and simple design places eight uncaged ball bearings on each side of the blade pivot in races which are machined into the stainless steel handle. It is compact and adjustable at the blade pivot screw if ever needed. Not only is opening and closing exceptionally smooth, the IKBS system is durable and requires little maintenance, and yields a folder with great rigidity and no blade play.
The Eros model is a frame lock open build knife with a titanium frame. In typical Ken Onion attention to detail, the frame lock does not create an unsightly gap in the right frame, but its cut is neatly integrated into the grip design of the frame.
