Chuck Richards’ motto is “We make high quality knives and tools as tough as scientifically possible.” The Counselor 2.0 titanium frame lock folder is an excellent example of this credo. A deceptively simple design, the ergonomic Counselor is built tough with a robust titanium frame lock, thick, linerless Carbon Fiber front scale and saber ground Damasteel blade. This is a tool that was built for use but designed to be comfortable and carried every day while the carbon fiber and Damasteel elevate this piece to a higher level of style.
Includes microfiber drawstring bag and bandanna knife roll for storage, both Made in the USA.
Brand new direct from Chuck Richards, Proudly made in NE Ohio, USA.
Blade: The subtle drop point blade is made from Damasteel, a modern stainless Damascus, in a robust saber grind making the Counselor a beefy, reliable, every day cutting tool. The blade has a striking look thanks to the blend of steels that form Damasteel. The blade opens smooth on phosphor bronze washers via a stepped titanium thumb stud. Professionally heat and cryo treated by Peters’ Heat Treat for optimal performance this beefy blade comes razor sharp.
Handle: Elegant in its simplicity the Counselor has ergonomic handles made from two slabs, one smooth Carbon Fiber the other Titanium, that form the open back construction. The titanium side is also the integral frame lock mechanism that is reliable and smooth. The frame is equipped with a Hinderer-style Lock Bar Stabilizer and the handles are rounded out with a single titanium barrel spacer, inline lanyard pin and hidden screw, 3D machined titanium pocket clip.
Carries via a right hand, tip-up only titanium pocket clip.
Damasteel: A high hardness, high corrosion resistant steel that combines two martensitic stainless steels – RWL34 and PMC27 – in unique patterns that, when etched, create the designs seen in the blade. Damasteel delivers a blade that is very eye-catching and has performance in the realm of RWL34 or CPM154.
