The Ripple features a modified drop point blade that has a high hollow grind, swedged top edge, and a high satin finish. Blade Steel is 8CR14Mov high carbon stainless steel with an HRC rating of 57-59. The blade is instantly opened by pressing the blade flipper with either hand. For safety while closed, the blade has a ball detent.
The Ripple blade opening action is almost friction-free due to the IKBS ball-bearing system. This innovative and simple design places ball bearings built into the stainless pivot screw. It is compact and adjustable at the blade pivot screw if ever needed. Not only is opening and closing incredibly smooth, the IKBS system is durable and requires little maintenance, and yields a folder with great rigidity and no blade play.
The Ripple K415KXP model has locking liner. The aluminum handles are CNC machined with over 40 lightening holes and small ripples. The handles are then hard anodized black and then the top of the ripples are polished off to create a pocket worn finish.
Designed with a stainless steel clip so it tucks away nicely in your pocket for every day carry and easy access.
