Part of the new 2017 Walt's Classic series. Created with perfection in mind, no shortcuts were taken. Our Walt's Classic starts with a hefty 5mm back spring and 440C half grind blade design; much thicker than the norm. This is then sandwiched between two 1mm thick brass liners. Featuring solid nickel silver bolsters, and all held together with solid brass pins in the traditional fashion. For this special tactical version, the blade and bolsters have been coated in black Teflon for a dramatic and impressive look. Finally, we chose jet-black acrylic for the handle to complement the black Teflon coating, making an impressive all-black knife.
The blade deploys fast and dead center with solid lock up you can hear and feel. The user-friendly solid nickel bolster releases the blade with ease. For the first time ever, the classic Latama over Italy and Walt's stylized cat tang stamps grace the blade.
These important details, traditional Italian design, created by artisans in Maniago, using premium raw materials, all come together to create the Pure Italian switchblade.
