Columbia River 7130 7130 Lake Thunderbolt 2 Ron Lake Plain Edge Knife
Study aircraft history, and you find the name Thunderbolt connected both to the P-47 fighter and A-10 fighter bomber. They are both invariably described as "large, rugged, dependable." Those words also fit Ron Lake's locking liner design for the CRKT Thunderbolt®.
Briefly, this is a heavy-duty locking liner folder series, with premium blade steel, aircraft aluminum InterFrame build, with a stainless steel clip and patented LAWKS® safety, all at a fabulously competitive price.
The smaller Thunderbolt® 2 models are ideal for every day carry. Weight is 5.7 oz. and blade length is 3.437".
Blades are extremely strong dual-grind Tanto-style with a drop point top edge. Blade steel is 8Cr14MoV high-chromium stainless steel with a special non-reflective black oxide coating. Fast one-hand opening is accomplished by a large oval thumb hole with friction grooves on the outboard edge.
Ron Lake has designed a large, ergonomic handle with a center swell and grooved areas at the thumb and pommel. These are knives you can use while wearing gloves and under slippery conditions.
The 6061 aluminum scales are anodized charcoal gray and CNC-machined with milled pockets to further aid grip. In the center pockets, bronze anodized inserts provide subtle contrast. InterFrame build uses dual stainless steel liners, one locking, which are also black oxide coated.
It features the patented* LAWKS® safety, which effectively converts your folder into a virtual fixed blade when actuated.
All models come with a custom stainless steel clip in a black oxide finish.
