The 3001 Precision folder is one of Real Steel’s most desirable. This version, which you’ll only find here, kicks it up another notch. How? Instead of 14C28N stainless steel, it employs S35VN stainless steel for better edge retention and corrosion resistance. Another upgrade, the handle on this model swaps titanium for G-10. The result is a stronger build and a more refined look. (There’s even a carbon fiber model if you prefer.) Measuring just under 7 inches, the 3001 Precision is compact and stout. The blade has an aggressive clip-point shape, almost like a bowie knife. Finally, there's a clip for tip-up carry on the right side.
Note: At checkout, choose the all-titanium model or the titanium and carbon fiber model. Due to the sensitive nature of shipping knives internationally, we can only ship this knife to select countries. It is the responsibility of the buyer to know and comply with all importation regulations and local laws. Click here for additional information.
Developed by Crucible Industries (one of the leading manufacturers of specialty steels for the cutlery industry) and Chris Reeve (arguably the most famous knifemaker in the world), S35VN is perhaps the most balanced blade steel ever created in terms of all-around performance. It’s made through a process of powdered metallurgy known as CPM, which results in near perfect consistency in the distribution of carbides. Compared to conventional melting practices, the CPM process produces a steel characterized by superior dimensional stability, grindability, and toughness.
