    LionSteel Gitano - New, unused, mint. Comes with box and plastic sleeve. Perfect condition, blade centered, factory edge superb, fit and finish excellent as usual.


    SOLD!

    Description

    LionSteel of Italy and custom knife maker Gudy Van Poppel have teamed up to deliver a production version of Van Poppel's Gitano folder. Heavily influenced by the classic Spanish Navaja, this modern slip joint has the same sweeping lines and eye-catching clip point blade executed with LionSteel precision in modern, high-performance materials. This version comes with a Niolox blade, titanium bolsters and liners and Green Canvas Micarta scales.

    Brand new, direct from LionSteel of Italy.

    Blade: Made from Niolox tool steel the big, sweeping blade of the Gitano delivers performance and style in equal measure. A fine satin finish adds to the stylish look while the lack of nail nicks keep the blade looking clean. The high saber ground, clip point profile is a classic, offering solid performance for slicing and piercing tasks. Plenty of blade rides outside the handle when closed allow for a solid grip for ambidextrous opening. A great choice for dress carry or every day use when a larger blade is desired..

    Handle: The Navaja-inspired design has a similar sweeping handle with titanium bolstered Green Canvas Micarta scales supported by crowned titanium liners. The back-spring is crowned and, along with the chamfered scales and bolsters, offer a very comfortable feel in the hand. The tapering handle provides a solid and secure grip while a subtle index guard provides some added safety. The moderate back spring tension delivers smooth pull with snappy half and full stops for secure use.

    Carries via a right hand, tip-up only stainless steel pocket clip.

    Niolox Tool Steel: Stain resistant tool steel, with good edge holding and decent toughness. Contains niobium, one of the best carbide forming elements, and has a typical working hardness from 58-63 HRC. D2-like wear resistance with better edge stability and a very fine grain for razor sharpness.
