This week our spotlight falls on the Sukhoi 2.0 folding knife from the folks at Custom Knife Factory. This is a really terrific mid-tech whose quality borders on full custom, designed with care by Anton Malyshev.

The first thing you’re going to notice about this knife is the sleek, beautiful handle. Particularly eye-catching are the blue anodized accents. We’re looking at a solid titanium frame with large areas milled out for the contoured carbon fiber inlays. This has a great shape that feels pretty nice to hold, and you get a solid amount of grip out of the carbon fiber, in combination with the machined texture of the titanium.

Blade is a slender drop-point shape, coming in just over four inches long and made from S35VN stainless steel. The black stonewashed finish segues smoothly from the carbon fiber, giving this a really cohesive, elegant look. The action is absurdly smooth, with the thumb stud granting you a ridiculously fast deployment. The only thing that could make this model more perfect would be a flipper.

There’s a milled titanium pocket clip that allows for a secure tip-up carry, and the knife comes with a colorful nylon pouch.

Overall, Custom Knife Factory’s  Sukhoi 2.0 is a gorgeous, well put together mid-tech folder. For pure aesthetic appeal and functionality, you really can’t beat something like this. To learn more about this knife, click here. To see our entire inventory visit knifecenter.com
