Folding knives are confidently leading in demand among tourists and people who like picnics. These knives are convenient, safe to transport, reliable for performing various types of works. Firebird F7551 model has all the above mentioned characteristics as well as an advantage over other knives which is its unique design.
The blade of this knife looks really unusual. It has a very wide blade with notch on the side of the butt. The line of cutting edge gradually rises, but the butt is visibly bent outward almost at the blade level, and then sharply drops downward. This form is called Shipfoot. It makes it very convenient to shred and cut, although it practically does not allow chopping. Blade thickness is 3.3mm and, therefore, it will be able to sustain work even with very hard materials. The blade is smoothly sharpened and grinded using the Satin wash method. Such grinding allows visually hide small scuffs on the metal, which appear with time on any knife. The hole on the blade plays rather a decorative role, and also allows to reduce its weight a little.
The handle for Firebird F7551 is made of material known as G10. In fact, this is fiberglass with composite structure, which has a small weight, but large safety factor. It is conveniently formed in such a way as to repeat the outlines of the compressed palm.
