The NK-20 Vertabrae was designed by custom knifemaker Rick Haney out of Chattanooga, TN, based on his custom model with the same name. It is a terrific EDC tool with a large amount of belly and just the right balance of strength to weight ratio. The 3.625" 9Cr13CoMoV sheepsfoot blade is hollow ground for additional sharpness with a brushed satin finish, lightly jimped thumb ramp, and thumb slot opening method. The blade rotates open smoothly and locks up tightly, riding on a caged ball bearing pivot system with a superb detent. Whether you use your middle or index finger to flick the blade open, this knife can and will accommodate. The skeletonized handle is made from highly textured G10 over stainless steel liners with a tip-down, right carry pocket clip and a perfectly jimped lockbar face for excellent purchase. It's a very stout, capable design for its size and its smooth action makes it a very enjoyable everyday carry.
