The Medford Chunky Monkey-Violet/Bronze is Medford’s latest offering (Released June 2019), and it might be the world’s “biggest” little flipper knife. The blade shape is a unique combination between a Sheepsfoot, Wharncliffe, and a Cleaver. The 2.3″ blade is CPM-S35VN steel and has a black PVD finish. The thick titanium handles features an anodized violet to bronze fade finish, and features a sculpted titanium pocket clip with a Ti flame finish. The pocket clip incorporates a ball bearing that is pressed into it for pocket retention. Also features a NP3 breaker that is incorporated into the end of the handle.
CPM-S35VN Steel: CPM S35VN is a quality stainless steel from Crucible Industries. Despite the high level of toughness in this steel, which usually diminishes a steel’s wear resistance, this steel does not lose out on a superior resistance to wear and chipping. Combined with carbon, the niobium carbides make the steel more effective in providing resistance to wear and edge chipping than if it were more dependent on chromium, which is the case with many other steels. The resulting edge holding ability of this steel is remarkable, ensuring S35VN steel to be a long lasting one.
