Defiant7 Folder: Kumu - Blue Anodized Smooth

Out of stock
About Defiant7: While the name Defiant7 may be new and unfamiliar, the guys behind it all are well known to the custom knife world: Les George and Chad Nichols.
Les George has a long established reputation as a custom knife maker, designer, and machining ninja. Aside from his custom work, Les has been doing in house production versions of his designs the past several years with the crazy popular VECP, ESR, Talos, etc.
Chad Nichols has been the guy pushing the boundaries of materials with his stainless damascus and mokuti under the Nichols Damascus banner. What is not as widely known is that Chad works quite a bit behind the scenes with custom knife makers to get their designs into a production format.
Defiant7 is the cumulation of Les and Chad's experience, skills, and passion for craftsmanship. They wanted to start a company that was not a 'company', but rather a sandbox where they were free to create and produce their knives on their terms.

About the Kumu: The first knife design out of the gate for Defiant7, the slim, streamlined, and easy to carry Kumu is a perfect choice for an everyday carry folder. It is not a big beefy tactical folder. It is not a dainty "gent-tac". Like Goldilocks said: "this one is juuuuuust right!" The spearpoint profile blade rides on bearings and is a super easy to deploy flipper. The Kumu is not afraid of work either. The frame is a full titanium framelock with titanium backspacer with lanyard hole.

Blade: Spearpoint profile in Carpenter CTS-XHP stainless steel. Dark, acid washed finish.
Frame: Titanium in stonewashed, blue anodized finish.
