Following the previous SOLID® SR1 and TiSpine models, both frame lock folding knives, we decided to launch a SOLID® knife with a lockback locking mechanism. The task was a challenge considering our decision to use Micarta and carbon fiber for the monolithic (one piece) construction of the handle using four-centerline machining stations.
The blade is available either satin finished or black. The clip can be fitted on either side of the handle, making this knife totally ambidextrous. The double spring lock back mechanism ensures greater flexibility in the mechanism and improved durability of the locking system. The pommel of the TM1 has a glass breaker with a tungsten carbide point.
To enhance the knife opening mechanism, it has been supplemented with the IKBS system which uses ball bearings to facilitate the blade sliding motion.
The monolithic handle/frame design makes a very solid platform (with no screws) that will provide a lifetime of dependable service and reduces weight.
The carbon fiber version includes a classy leather case.
