After the overwhelming success of our first run of Exclusive M390 Gunhammers, the KnifeCenter is extremely excited to see the new batch of these awesome tactical knives come in with the Torpedo style blade shapes. Available in either serrated or honed, spring-assisted or manual opening, you now have the choice between a tactical black DLC coated blade or an attractive Stonewashed finish. If you choose to go with a manual opening knife but are not familiar with the Maxx Glide Pivot System these knives utilize, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. This ball bearing design is exclusive to knives by Darrel Ralph and it really does close the speed gap between assisted and manual knives. With little to no wrist action, the blade flies open using the thumb studs or flipper mechanism and locks up solidly with the overly-thick titanium lockbar. M390 Steel from Bohler is an excellent performance steel balancing corrosion resistance and extremely high hardness (62HRC) which provides superb wear resistance during hard use cutting. You can check out these new M390 Gunhammer models exclusively at www.knifecenter.com.
