Dwaine Carrillo PROTOTYPE Button-Lock Scout M5, Desert Tan G10, Black Oxide Finish Blade (SOLD)
This is Dwaine Carrillo's signature Scout M5 folder. This knife is Brand New, and just received directly from Dwaine. This knife features his NEW button-lock mechanism. It is a rare PROTOTYPE, marked on the backspacer (pictured) as well as on the tang of the blade. A Dwaine Carrillo prototype is highly collectible and super rare. They do not come up for sale very often. Dwaine has discontinued his frame-lock folders in favor of this new button-lock design. Dwaine feels that this new lock will hold up better, and eliminate the "lock stick" that sometimes occurs with frame-locks, and tends to get worse over time as the lock wears. The button-lock is a very secure lock, and we think it adds a "cool" factor to his folders. If you are a fan of the frame-lock, and want to get one of the last he made, check our site or click here.
This knife features a 1/4" thick CPM-154 Stainless Steel blade with Dwaine's Black Oxide Finish, and a Desert Tan G-10 grip. A great match-up...it looks awesome! It has an over-sized pivot, blue and gold anodized clip set for tip-up carry, satin finished titanium frame, and notched thumb-rest. It has rock solid lockup, and excellent blade-seating. Dwaine has purposely tightened up the blade just a tad. He tells me that the washers will break in, and blade action will smooth out over time. This is a heavy duty folder, true to Dwaine's style. As with all the knives that come direct from Dwaine's shop in Oklahoma City, it comes in a Pelican hard case.
