Based on the Comrade model (fully made in Bulgaria), the young Manly brand has created a compelling concept that must be viewed as a rousing success for its introduction to the knife market. The D2
blade steel has been hardened to 59-61 HRC (=1.2379), promising durability and edge-holding. The flat-ground blade has a nail groove and features an appealing black satin finish. Solid steel liners support 3D-milled handle scales made from green G10
, whose radial texture is not only visually appealing but also provides a very secure, non-slip grip. A stepped slip joint is used as the mechanism, which uses a strong spring to engage the blade in 4 steps as a way to increase user safety. Stainless steel clip (tip-up) for a comfortable carry. A solid utility knife with premium materials for an unbeatable price.
