The Facet combines high class with high tech. It features a white micarta handle and exquisitely machined nickel silver bolsters. Turned back and forth in the light , it dazzles the eye. In the hand, it dazzles the mind with balance and grace. The VG-10 blade, Arc-Lock and hardened stainless steel liners add strength without compromise. The Arc-Lock just might be the perfect lock. Why? It is totally ambidextrous and has all of the attributes knife designers relentlessly search for, but rarely find. Strength: The Arc-Lock far surpasses conventional lock strength, tested at over 1000 lbs of force measured at the lock in an independent lab test. Speed: The Arc-Lock provides lightning-quick, one-handed opening and closing capability. Safety: Spring-action securely retains the blade closed. When unlocking, the fingers are safely kept clear. Durability: The Arc-Lock is self-adjusting over time and can be easily cleaned for long term optimal performance.
