CKFELFSBC: Stas Bondarenko Customized Anton "Tohus" Malyshev ELF
Custom Knife Factory
Custom Knife Factory might sound like an ambiguous name but it's definitely one worth remembering. Their knives are mid-tech by definition but the quality definitely borderlines on full custom. They have a CNC machine shop in China that does some of the legwork but all the hand fit and finishing is done in house in their Moscow shop. They use top of the line materials made in the USA and designs from some of the most talented knife designers in Russia.

The ELF is an Anton Malyshev design and one large, fast tactical folder. The S35VN drop point blade has a unique shape that provides strength to the tip and also has a large amount of belly. It has a dark acid wash finish over the normal stonewash which gives it an antiqued look. It's strictly a flipper style opening blade and absolutely flies out of the handle every time with minimal pressure thanks to a bearing opening system. The handle is robust, ergonomic and large enough for any sized hands. The face scale is milled carbon fiber with some skull patterns and is contoured to fit the hand for a comfortable and firm grip. The locking side is pure, thick titanium that is also contoured for comfort and has very detailed random and skull milling that provides an aesthetically pleasing look. This knife reminds us of the Brous Blades Division Flipper for its speed of opening, size, ergonomics, materials and just overall manufacturing quality. And if you're familiar with Brous Blades, you will know that this is saying something! It is one of the nicest tactical flippers we have ever come across. The knife features a patina finish pocket clip, bronze titanium backspacer, Torx screw hardware throughout and a stainless steel replaceable lockbar insert. You cannot go wrong with a Custom Knife Factory offering, the quality is up there with absolutely any manufacturer out there.

Semi-Custom or Mid-Tech knives are knives produced by a process in which the designer has more direct--but not complete--involvement; parts of these knives may still have been made by others.
Frame Lock
Frame Lock
Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Pocket Clip
Pocket Clip
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.
Carbon Fiber Handles
Carbon Fiber Handles
Very strong and lightweight material. Provides an upscale and modern feel.
