The perfect cutting companion for city dwellers, the new Urban Lightweight is the latest evolution of the original Urban. As a member of the SLIPIT family, it provides the advantages of clip carry and one-hand opening, but with a socially friendly non-locking mechanism. Its leaf-shaped blade is full-flat ground from K390 steel for outstanding edge geometry and features an index-finger choil to help prevent unintentional closure during use. The Urban Lightweight features a textured, fiberglass-reinforced-nylon handle that keeps it feather light while still providing a full, secure grip. A reversible, deep-pocket wire clip completes the package, offering convenient tip-up carry on both sides of the body.
K390 is a powdered metallurgy, cold work tool steel with 9% vanadium and added tungsten and cobalt for excellent wear resistance and high compressive strength that is a workhorse in even the most severe applications.
The carbides in the K390 mix are fine in textured and the steel’s remaining components are uniformly sized and distributed evenly throughout the matrix. This equal distribution of elements adds to the overall strength and cutting capacity when the blade is finished and sharpened.
