GEMINI - BLACK LINEN MICARTA

This might be the coolest looking Gemini yet.

The Black Linen Micarta scales range from a green/ black as in the stock photos here, to almost a two tone camo effect. Every one is slightly different.

This Vanguard series Gemini flipper is a Ray Laconico designed folding knife based on his custom Jasmine folder. The build on this production model is superb, offering great fit and excellent action.

The Vanguard Gemini has a full-flat ground Bohler N690 steel blade with a fine stonewash finish. It's set on a ball-bearing pivot, which offers phenomenal action. The handle on this model is black micarta over a skeletonized stainless steel liner. The tip-up carry clip accommodates EDC duty.

A Closer Look At Bohler N690 Steel

N690 Cobalt stainless steel is made by Bohler in Austria - the same company that makes the now famous M390 high end blade steel. N690 steel is very similar to 440C but the high chromium content (more than 17 percent) makes this steel very resistant to corrosion. In addition, its ability to accept hardening is increased and its wear resistance is improved.

Molybdenum (a little over one percent) is introduced to reduce the brittleness of the alloy and improves a number of other properties and characteristics of N690 steel making it very durable and easy to sharpen for knife blades.

These knives are fantastic value for the money. Very fast to flip. Flat blade grind.

Flipper, ceramic ball bearing action.
