Trash Panda Knives is a collaborative project including custom knife makers Aaron Frederick, John W Smith and CJ Smith that offers extreme hard use knives that are built to use and take on whatever you can throw at them. The “Kit” is a robust slip joint folder in the style of the classic pocket knife made with modern, high performance materials. This Kit is built with titanium liners, Nichols Stainless Damascus blade and carbon fiber scales. Built to take the abuse, if you break the blade on your Kit just send it back to Trash Panda Knives with a good story on how you killed it and a new blade will be installed for free.
Brand new directly from Trash Panda Knives.
Blade: Made from premium Chad Nichols Stainless Damascus steel the clip point blade has a striking look from the etched ‘Boomerang’ pattern and a fine, hollow ground edge. The slip joint operation has a solid half stop with good walk and talk. Three milled holes in the blade are substituted for a nail nick for opening, adding traction while keeping a clean look. This piece bears the mark of Aaron Frederick as opposed to the standard Trash Panda logo.
The back springs are quite strong on this batch and require a strong grip to open..
Handle: Offering a blend of modern and traditional design the handle is comprised of a steel back spring, blasted titanium liners and matte finished carbon fiber handle scales all held together with titanium Torx hardware. The slip joint operation has a solid half stop operation for safety. The large, classic handle profile is comfortable during periods of extended use while maintaining a slim, easy to carry profile.
