zinc alloy knives are purpose built to be the toughest automatic knives you can
This claim starts with the use of 440C
stainless steel blades. So, they're even tougher than the standard 440 stainless
that we are used to in a quality knives.
But, it's more than just a
tough blade. The handles are made of zinc alloy, so they can take all the
same abuse that the blade can take.
Also, everything on the inside
is stainless steel. From the detents that hold the blade inside and
outside, to the carrier, to the spring all stainless steel.
The spring is also heat treated
for longevity. A heat treated spring is discolored. They're not
shiny and pretty like a spring that hasn't been heat treated, but CobraTec believes
that you are more interested in longevity than looks.
Additionally, the glass break
on the end is a steel ball bearing. The ball bearing is excellent for
breaking a car window and allowing emergency escape.
Also, the belt clip is steel.
It holds it's shape and strength very well.
Lastly, the switch is solid
metal. Some are hollow. Some area even plastic. With CobraTec
the switch is solid metal.
Every aspect of these knives
are purpose built to be the toughest automatic knives.
They do of course carry a
lifetime warranty, as you would expect from a knife built to be the toughest.
