Newton Martin is a young knifemaker from Texas, known for rugged fixed blades, who recently started designing and making folding knives as well. His model "Nopal" got its name from the Texan word for the cactus plant, whose leaves replicate the shape of the closed knife. The stable Wharncliffe blade has a chisel grind, offering extraordinary strength and sharpness. The straight cutting edge allows extremely precise cuts and perfect tip control. Steel liner and textured G-10 scales in combination with the deep finger choils and notches provide a secure grip and excellent ergonomics. The blade is made of 440C stainless steel, satin finished, and locks with a sturdy liner lock mechanism. Includes removable pocket clip. Blade length: 2 1/8". Overall length: 5 1/2". Weight: 3 oz.
Boker Plus Newton Martin K-BIT $49.95
The name says it all. A Newton Martin design for an ultra compact Karambit. This design makes the knife a very compact companion, which can be worn discreetly using the accompanying Kydex sheath and ball chain. The handle opening provides many options and makes room for the fingers to ensure the most secure grip. Or use the entire hand around the ring for other applications, as the circular notches will provide optimum grip, and also allow for a winding of paracord. The 5mm thick blade is made of high performance 440C stainless steel, titanium coated. This knife makes for a truly versatile companion, any way you choose to use it!
Over the years, the knife market has seen numerous survival knives with hollow handles. Many of those can only be regarded as mere show pieces due to lacking stability. However, Newton Martin from Texas developed a construction which is virtually indestructible despite the screwed tang and handle. Extreme bending tests with fixed blade have permanently deformed the blade before any kind of weak points were noticeable at the point of connection.
International experts have been very enthusiastic about the presentation of these custom knives and we are now extremely proud to present this successfull concept by Martin Knives as excusive Böker Plus products. The massive blade has a thickness of 6.6 mm and is made of 440C stainless steel. The construction of the handle provides an entirely water-proof compartment inside the handle for the safe storage of additional equipment (not included).
The cord wrapping of the handle not only increases the grip but also provides several precious meters of stable rope in case of an emergency. Due to the milled checkering, the handle also provides a safe amount of grip in various conditions without the wrapping. The prominent handguard enhances the secure handling of the knife. Handle and blade have a matt, non-reflective blasted finish. A knife without compromise, ready for any kind of adventure!
