Description

This Apostate model sports a black G-10 handle and a black stonewashed blade.

The Steel Will Apostate is a tactical folding knife built with a high-strength titanium frame lock and a predatory drop point blade made from premium CPM-S35VN stainless steel.

Superior performance and quality materials make the Steel Will Apostate a solid daily carry option.

Features:
  • Reversible stainless steel pocket clip and dual thumb studs provide for full ambidextrous use.
  • A ceramic ball bearing pivot is perfectly calibrated for smooth, responsive blade deployment.
  • Tough titanium frame lock with milled out inner pockets for a solid, lightweight build.

First of all let me say that I am evaluating this knife as a tactical/self-defense blade. Maybe it's perfect for other applications I'm not thinking of.

I have a mixed reaction to this knife. On one hand, I'm sure it's adequate for anything you should be asking a folder to do. The blade is great of course (super steel, thick stock). The action is butter smooth -- every time I touch the flipper, the blade snaps open instantly, almost feels like an assisted opener. In fact the detent and the bearing system are perfectly attuned; while touching the flipper opens the blade quickly and very reliably, I am not able to shake the blade out at all without hitting the flipper. Excellent.

On the downside, there is no liner in the G10 scale, so the blade stabilizes using studs that rest against titanium on one side and bare G10 on the other. There is no internal stop pin. I don't like the unreinforced edge of a G10 scale doing that much work, at least not on a moderate- to heavy-user. Also, the G10 is thin enough that you can easily flex it with some pressure from a single finger... Not to my liking. Finally, while the frame and backspacer are titanium, I think they're pretty thin. Tapping on them gives a hollow little metallic noise that doesn't come from heavier titanium. Probably not a functional issue but in conjunction wit the thin G10 and the lightweight it just makes the blade feel a little cheap in my hand. Just a subjective thing I'd say about a lot of worthwhile knives.

One last thing, I did like the knife almost enough to keep it, but the straw that broke the camel's back was some roughness around the edges of the G10 scale -- just in a place or two. The knife looks good overall but fit and finish were not strictly perfect.
