Custom Knife Factory SNAFU 3.0 Integral Titanium M390 Blade Zircuti Parts


The world renowned Canadian knifemaker Peter Rassenti and Custom Knife Factory had already collaborated on 3 models in the past. The Satori, SNAFU 2.0 and the Satori 2.0. All 3 models were extremely popular and highly sought after by CKF collectors. The SNAFU 3.0 is the newest collaboration between the two, and one of the most anticipated so far.


The SNAFU 3.0 may well be one of the best CKF collaborations to date. The clean and uncluttered design is classic, matching perfectly with a handsome bowie style blade. The mesmerising Zircuti pivot collar adds a pleasant pop of colour to the handle.

The handle is integral and made entirely from one piece of solid titanium. This is a complicated and laborious process, requiring higher levels of precision, skill and attention to details. CKF has absolutely knocked it out of the park with the quality and fit & finish.

The bowie style blade is made of M390 and features beautiful grinds with a top swedge as well as blade fuller. The blade has a front finger choil as well as very deep and aggressive jimping on the spine. The flats are satin finish while the rest of the blade features a classy vapour finish. The large external blade stops attached to both sides of the blade are a signature of Peter Rassenti.

As you'd expect from Custom Knife Factory, the action is sharp & snappy on the deployment and silky smooth, drop shut on the closing. The flipper tab is nicely bevelled to prevent any possible hot spots and guarantee a hard firing flip every time. You could also deploy the blade with your middle finger using the blade fuller, AKA "Spydie flip" it or even use the oversized blade stops to thumb flick it.


As always, you will receive more than just the knife from Custom Knife Factory. The SNAFU 3.0 comes in a high quality pouch including a microfiber cloth, certificate of authenticity, CKF sticker, full set of hardware & screws.


Each knife is individually numbered and the serial number on the knife you will receive may be different to the knife in the listing photos.
