CR1053W: Delegate Gentleman
If you were a delegate to the Constitutional Convention in Philadephia in 1787, you would feel right at home with our new line of gentleman's folders, so we're calling it the Delegate™ line. Classic knifemaking tradition comes through in their understated design and use of natural materials.
But like the Founding Fathers, there is a revolutionary aspect to this line. We have incorporated our OutBurst® assist with our patent-pending* Fire Safe™ release mechanism which is built into the thumb stud.
When the blade is closed, it is securely held in place by the OutBurst spring bias, and is also locked in place by the Fire Safe pin in the locking liner, which engages the blade.
To open the blade, simply press in on the Fire Safe thumb stud, and rotate it forward to begin blade opening. Once the blade is open approximately 30 degrees, the OutBurst assist takes over and instantly completes the opening action. In practice, one-handed opening is a fast, single movement of the thumb.
This system provides exceptional safety because it is very difficult, if not impossible, to open the blade accidentally. Bumping or pressing the thumb stud does nothing. The user must know the secret rotating action to open the blade.
The Delegate™ Gentleman is our smaller model with a three inch blade and a weight of only 1.7 ounces. It is noteworthy for its custom-style black G10 bolster perfectly inlaid with a cocobola scale. Our rigid InterFrame build uses stainless steel liners, one locking, with black anodized 6061 aluminum bolsters and inlaid scales.
It has a custom stainless steel clip.

Considered a value steel, 8Cr13 steel provides adequate corrosion resistance but with slightly more carbon than AUS-8, it will sharpen up and hold an edge better.
Provides a traditional, natural look and feel to a modern tool. Wood absorbs shock well and is popular in axe handles.
