These huge high performance folders are actually surprisingly easy to carry. Expertly designed to fit comfortably in your pocket, you’ll soon forget that you are carrying such a large and impressive blade. Built to snap into action in a flash thanks to their patented Demko Thumb Plate, the Espadas can be snagged on your pocket, actually opening the knife as you draw it – and bringing it in to play in the blink of an eye!
The Espada's beautiful, flat ground, blades are made from premium American CTS XHP Alloy Steel. This USA powdered "super steel" was chosen for its ability to not only take a super-fine cutting edge, but to hold it for an exceptionally long time. Each knife is hand honed to a level of sharpness that is more at home on a surgeon's scalpel, creating a level of cutting performance that simply is astonishing.
In order to protect your fingers from this wickedly sharp blade, each Espada is equipped with their patented Tri-Ad locking mechanism, proven to be the strongest lock in the world and virtually impervious to shock – making it almost impossible for the blade to close on your hand.
In their own notoriously brutal product testing, the XL Espada was not only capable of easily holding 600lb of free hanging weight, but they even used it to support a hanging engine block!
This Espada series is in a slightly more slim-line, tactical "blackout" edition, with a hard-wearing DLC coated blade and matte black American G10 handle scales.
