J.E. Made PROTOTYPE Slip-Joint Folder, Carbon Fiber Scales, Titanium Bolster, S35VN (SOLD)
This is the J.E. Made slip-joint folder "sterile" Prototype. The blade is unmarked on both sides. Typically, the presentation side of the blade is etched with "J.E. Made", and the year, and the opposite side is etched with "S35VN". This blade is "clean". It was confirmed by the maker that this was the first one made, prior to the production build. In fact, if there is any doubt on the part of the new owner that this is the Prototype, the maker will confirm this in an email...if necessary.
It features a premium CPM S35VN stainless steel, stonewashed, clip point blade with false edge, and a "cut out" long pull. The hollow ground cutting edge provides razor-like cutting, and the S35VN offers optimal edge retention and corrosion resistance for everyday use. The open long pull makes it easy for both right-handed or left-handed users. The handle scales are carbon fiber, with a large Torx pivot and two Torx screws. The backspring is stainless steel. The bolster is beadblasted titanium, and the liners are integral. There is also a generous lanyard hole in pommel. The knife has a half stop, and is flush in all positions. The blade is centered between the liners when in the closed position, and there is no blade play when opened. Walks and talks. A great EDC to drop in your pocket.
