The MKM Fara is a modern slipjoint, designed by Lucas Burnley. The Fara offers you an elegant combination between classic features such as the familiar slipjoint, but is, at the same time, complemented by a top-quality finish and sleek, modern lines.
Designer Burnley gave the blade a clippoint-like shape. On the presentation side the blade has been enhanced with a large groove that offers you enough traction to neatly open the knife with two hands. 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 a slipjoint will neatly keep it open. And yet you can still easily close it: it only offers resistance, not a lock. As such you can legally carry it with you almost anywhere.
MKM selected Santos for the handle of this version. A stunning type of wood that looks like palissander. It makes the knife look classy. The coloured collar around the pivot is remarkable for a knife such as this and gives it a modern look and feel.
The MKM Fare comes in a leather sheath with belt loop. The leather is nice and supple to make sure you can also carry the sheath as a slip sheath in your pocket.
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 Fara is made by Mercury.
