The MKM Clap is an EDC gentleman's knife, designed by Bob Terzuola. The knife is compact in terms of size, but has still been enhanced with a 7.8 cm blade. Combined with the use of stunning materials the MKM Clap is one of the most beautiful gentleman's knives in our range.
Remarkable about the MKM Clap is that you open it with the flipper. Because of the ball bearings around the pivot it will open quickly. Looking for a knife that won't open so fast? No worries, simply remove the flipper. After all, this knife comes with a torx key with a cover screw. As such the MKM Clap suddenly becomes a knife you open with two hands making it legal in many places in Europe.
The shape of the blade is breath-taking. A droppoint shape with harpoon fin on the spine and a compound grind with fuller. Quite the mouth full, but in reality it is a combination of cool shapes and features you rarely see together. MKM chose Böhler M390 steel for this knife. This is a type of steel that retains its sharpness well and is incredibly wear-resistant. It is also very stainless. One of the most popular choices at the moment. When opened the blade is locked by a linerlock. Stunning details are the blue collar around the pivot, the blue backspacer and the blue pocket clip. Stunning.
This version has a handle made from carbon fibre enhanced with a titanium bolster.
Where does MKM Knives come from?
MKM is a cooperation between Viper, LionSteel, Fox and Mercury. Four masters working in the Italian knife industry. It is no coincidence that they all come from the city: Maniago, northern Italy. The knife capital of the south of Europe. MKM stands for Maniago Knife Makers. This MKM Clap is made by LionSteel.
