The Curtiss Knives F3 Series was born out of the need for a hardcore, quality, American-made folding knife. This standard Wharncliffe F3 Medium model is made using CTS-XHP stainless steel, caged bearings, a D2 tool steel lockbar insert, and the Curtiss Knives patented S.P.O.T. Pivot system. This non-adjustable system provides fast, smooth action and tight lockup without fear of debris becoming an issue. The jimping on the thumb ramp is milled to be functional but not uncomfortable, just one aspect you’ll grow to appreciate if you own this knife. The handle frames have a blasted and dark stonewashed finish as does the matching backspacer. The design combines several integral parts of a high-quality flipper into one piece for a cleaner and more sleek appearance and comes with a full lifetime warranty.
- Full titanium frame lock. Each titanium slab is 0.16″ thick.
