Bear Claw XL Apex Folding Knife Hidden Flipper Titanium Handle S35VN Blade
BEAR CLAW XL APEX
The name suggests something large, beastly and sharp. The Bear Claw XL Apex is exactly that. The 13cm long handle is large enough to accommodate the biggest hands. And it has a 9.7cm long, 4mm thick blade to match the handle.
Let's start with the coolest feature on the Bear Claw XL Apex and that is the hidden flipper tab system. Look closely and you will find that the flipper is visible when the blade is closed, but disappears when the blade is open! The flipper tab is actually a part of the frame (instead of blade) and is made of titanium. The flipper moves 90 degrees inside the handle and sits flush with the top of the handle after the blade is deployed. When closing the blade, it will move to ready position again.
The handle is of course high quality titanium with beautiful speed holes on presentation side for both aesthetics and weight reduction purpose. The lock side features a rock solid framelock mechanism with stainless steel insert. Ball bearing pivot systems ensures smooth opening and closing action.
The Bear Claw XL Apex offers premium S35VN steel for the blade. S35VN has a combination of edge retention, corrosion resistance and ease of sharpening qualities and is a popular choice for high quality knives.
