BM480: 480 Shoki - Nakamura Design
The 480 Shoki™ is the embodiment of a gentlemen’s carry. No details were overlooked in the production of this elegant tool, including the brand new Nak-Lok™, beautifully contoured G10 and stabilized wine wood handle scales, radiant blue anodized titanium liners, and rich black nickel hardware. The stainless steel backspacer utilizes cutting edge MIM technology to emulate custom hand file work, the hollowground S30V crowned blade, and handy sheath complete this package.
NAK-LOK™ - Built from the framework of the locking-liner with some innovative updates. The lock engages using tensile strength, compared to the compression hold of more traditional locking-liners. With the Nak-Lok, the possibility of personal injury is greatly reduced with the opening finger never crossing the blade's path.
