Koenig Knives Custom Arius Darth Vader Flipper 3.5" CTS-XHP Black DLC Blade and Titanium Handles, Red Cerakoted Accents
BKKARIUSVDR: Custom Darth Vader Arius Folding Knife, Red Cerakote
The Arius is a heavy duty, yet nimble mid-sized flipper designed to be the perfect EDC. This full titanium frame lock is as good looking as it is durable and its tactical nature is perfect for its overbuilt toughness. This knife is no longer being made by Millit Knives but all in-house by Bill, so the fact that he's able to keep the price at this level is amazing. No matter your intended task, even if destined for safe queen status, the Arius will serve honorably in that role.
The Arius is a knife packed with features and design aspects that you cannot help but love. The flipping action on ceramic bearings is ultra-smooth and the large flipper tab is a perfect finger guard in the open position. You can also use the thumb slot to open the blade silently if necessary. The blade features a perfectly designed thumb ramp, excellently ground swedge, and it sits perfectly centered within the ergonomic titanium handle. The milled backspacer has an integrated lanyard slot while the pocket clip has a hole that matches the lockbar relief cutout—two of many aspects that are perfected on this design. The D-shaped female pivot ensures it does not rotate during adjustment and the lockbar is jimped for excellent traction. Whether you're on a deployment, heading out on your next hunt or just out on the town, the Arius will outperform your expectations.
