The Mcusta Slip Joint Knife is a nice gentleman's knife. It can easily be opened with the front flipper, and a subtle slipjoint keeps the blade open. This means that the knife doesn't really have an actual lock. As such you can carry this knife almost everywhere in the world.
The blade is made from a core of hard Vg10 steel, laminated in between two layers of soft steel. As such you benefit from the hardness of the core and the flexibility of the laminated steel. Mcusta used pakka wood for the handle. A laminate of thin layers of wood that are impregnated with strong synthetic resin. As such it is very strong and stable. Perfect for a knife handle. Some layers have a different colour which makes the whole look even better.
The Mcusta Slip Joint Knife comes in a traditional Japanese case. The weaving of this is truly stunning.
