Laci Szabo's larger-than-life folder is an incredible blend of design flair and hardcore function. To make this amazing knife even more suitable for tactical applications, it is now available with a non-reflective black TiCN blade coating and a sure-grip handle boasting black Cubic Check carbon fiber/G-10 laminate scales. Its other critical features, including a dramatic Scimitar-shaped CPM S30V blade, high-strength Compression Lock mechanism, enhanced self-close feature, and four-position clip and skeletonized liners, all remain the same. Low profile meets high performance in the new all-black Szabo folder.
Laci Szabo is a law enforcement officer, a veteran U.S. Marine, and a word-class martial artist. He is also one of the most visionary knife designers in the industry, combining a unique flair for aesthetics with an in-depth understanding of function and defensive application. The Szabo folder is a reflection of Laci's philosophies regarding folding knife design as it applies to both utility and personal defense. Its large size creates a commanding presence and offers increased reach when used with fencing-style skills. The dramatic scimitar-shaped blade has a long, gently curving belly to maximize cutting power, while leaving the tip well centered to support point-oriented tactics. An unsharpened swedge on the back of the blade ensures an acute point and flows smoothly into a scalloped area on the spine. This unique geometry reduces drag and enhances the blade's trapping potential when applied with reverse-grip skills. The blade is mated to a generously sized handle that easily accommodates the largest hands and provides extreme leverage in all applications.
The original version of the Szabo folder was released in 2012 and featured a satin-finished blade and Gold Line G-10/carbon fiber laminate scales. In 2013, this version has been discontinued in favor of an all-black edition even better suited to tactical applications. The heart of the Szabo folder is its 5.85-inch CPM S30V scimitar-shaped blade. Its partial hollow grind creates excellent edge geometry while reinforcing the spine for increased strength. A Trademark Round Hole in the blade supports swift one-handed opening with either hand and, together with a subtle guard on the edge side of the blade, effectively protects the user's hand during use. For applications where light discipline is critical, the Szabo's blade features a non-reflective titanium carbonitride coating.
The Szabo's handle is constructed of full stainless steel liners capped by black Cubic Check carbon fiber/G-10 laminate scales. This visually striking material is lightweight, incredibly durable, and provides a secure, non-slip grip.
The Szabo folder is a technologically and artistically advanced folding knife from the mind of one of the knife industry's most creative designers. We sincerely hope that yours serves you and your personal needs well.
