Wind River Tier 2 Custom
ABOUT THE WIND RIVER FRAME LOCK TIER 2 CUSTOM:
The Tier 2 Wind River is made from the same high quality materials and craftsmanship as the original Tier 1. But we have added a 3D contoured texture to the handles which improves grip and reduces weight. Each handle is precision CNC milled from solid 6Al4V titanium and hand finished to provide a comfortable, secure grip.This particular Wind River has blue anodized scales and blue anodized hardware.
The primary goal of the Wind River is to provide a practical, well built folding knife that will last for generations. To build something that can provide a lifetime of use takes superior materials and craftsmanship. All major parts are designed and manufactured in house in order to control part quality and tolerances. We chose contoured grade 5 titanium handles to provide a solid grip, in addition to superior corrosion resistance in even the harshest conditions. The smooth, clean action is the result of ceramic bearings making orthogonal contact with hardened stainless-steel surfaces on both sides. These knives are meant to be used every day, and we understand that in tough conditions you tend to get dirty. By removing the frame retention screw and one pivot screw, you get access to every part of the knife for maintenance and cleaning. The Bohler Elmax blade features a solid drop point and slight recurve that pushes materials into a razor sharp edge that will hold up to heavy cutting.
All parts are backed by our Razor Life warranty. This includes transferable lifetime factory sharpening and maintenance, as well as defects in the manufacturing and craftsmanship of the parts.
