1168K description
How does Gerry McGinnis keep his grades up as a student at North Carolina State University and still keep coming up with new and interesting knife designs? We don't know, but we just couldn't resist putting his new Notorious line into production.

The Notorious 1168K is a full-size frame-lock folder. This tactical model is black oxide coated on blade, frames and clip, with black G10 scales, plus our patented combination Razor-Sharp and Veff Serrated* edge.

It features our OutBurst® assisted opening system. Pressing one of the dual ramped thumb studs instantly springs the blade fully open after you have opened the blade approximately 30 degrees.

The handle is exceptionally strong and rigid with two stainless steel frames and a stainless steel back spacer. Gerry has designed G10 scale onlays which fit the hand nicely and are CNC machined to give additional grip.

The 3.50" blade is a modified spear point with a recurve and a very high hollow grind, swedged at the top edge. There are ample friction grooves at the thumb. By maintaining a full-width spine nearly to the point, Gerry has created a blade with both excellent cutting ability and good penetration.

The Notorious features a cool custom drilled stainless steel clip.
