Full information


Like the Pentagon series, the Spec Elite series is designed as a backup and go-to tool for military and law enforcement personnel. Instead of a partially serrated spear point blade, the Spec Elite employs a clip point blade with a straight edge made in high quality VG-10 steel. Extremely lightweight, the Spec Elite features a hard anodized machined aluminum handle that provides sensational feel and balance. The strong Arc-Lock mechanism can hold over 1000 lbs. of force at the pivot. It can be carried conveniently with its reversible low-carry pocket clip.



    The Arc-LockTM

    With its ambidexterity - and all the other attributes knife enthusiasts so relentlessly seek - the Arc-Lock might just be the perfect lock.

    Tested at over 1000 lbs. of force (measured at the lock), far surpassing conventional lock strength.

    Lightning-quick, one-handed opening and closing capability.

    Spring-action securely retains blade closed, keeping fingers safely clear while unlocking.

    Self-adjusting over time and easily cleaned for long-term optimal performance.



    VG-10 is well-known high-end Japanese steel and is considered premium. It contains vanadium which is known for its toughness. The steel is specially designed for high-quality blades used in cutlery. VG-10 can be sharpened to a fine edge that is very durable. It can maintain a hardness of Rc 60 without becoming brittle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy and Wicked Best knife I own by far. I've never had a folder knife that I'd describe as balanced but this knife blew me away. It opens as quick as my assisted knives with very little effort and was razor sharp out of the box. I need more knives with this folding system it rocks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 Years as my EDC Primary and still going strong! I carry this every nearly every day as a primary last-dtich defensive tool. Properly adjusted and loctited, the blade and frame locks this perfect 5-inch blade strongly into place for serious hard use. The great Ergos of the handle, the serious strength of both lock and frame and the near perfect blade shape and length, put this into the rare category of true heavy duty, highly capable combat folder. A 5" bladed, 7oz folder might be a bit too much as a utility biased EDC knife, but as a real-use tactical knife, its almost perfect in all regards and carries comfortably and securely in both jeans and shorts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A well made knife I bought a Spec-Elite II soon after they were introduced. I have not been disappointed in it. The blade holds an edge well, and the locking mechanism is very strong. I have many knives in my collection, but this is one I would not want to do without.
