The Ti-Lock knife is a collaboration with Grant and Gavin Hawk. In early 2010, the Hawks showed Chris the concept of a new locking mechanism, one that Chris felt he could engineer and Chris Reeve Knives could manufacture. It has been a lack of capacity not a lack of desire that has precluded Chris Reeve Knives from producing Hawk Designs thus far. It is an honor to present the Ti-Lock
The Ti-Lock mechanism was originally conceived as a means to isolate the lock from the body of the knife, in order to allow more design freedom for handle and frame. The Ti-Lock is completely ambidextrous, allowing equal left and right hand use.
The Ti-Lock is not an exercise in ultimate lock strength; it is an exercise in mechanical innovation and an illustration of a passion shared by Grant, Gavin, and Chris. This passion is also shared by many of their customers—those who buy our knives in appreciation of the design, quality and precision put into our product.
This Ti-Lock has a stonewash finished S35-VN stainless steel blade and titanium handle. The handle has the "Blue Steam" graphic and a blue sapphire cabochon. Includes bead blast finished pocket clip.
