The Titanium 3.7 inch handles enclose the stonewashed drop point blade made of Bohler’s M390 super high grade steel. The opening mechanism begins with a simple flip launched by the slight push of a finger and controlled by a ceramic ball bearing system. The blade secures via its Titanium frame lock and is finished with a Titanium pocket clip (tip up).

Original price was: $164.00.Current price is: $119.95.

M390 (Bohler-Uddeholm)
M390 is considered by many on the market to be a super steel due to its excellent corrosion / stain resistance and wonderful hardness / high wear resistance. It’s produced via a third generation powder metal technology and can reach a 60-62 HRC.  Bohler calls this steel “Microclean” and it can be polished to a mirror finish.  Like many hard steels, the tradeoff on this steel’s most excellent blade retention is that it can be moderately difficult to sharpen, but just moderate. Due to all these fine qualities you can commonly find this used in not only custom knives around the world, but it’s also extremely popular in surgical applications.


We use titanium in many of our handles, clips, and liner and frame locking materials. We value it for 3 main advantages: Strength, appearance, and light weight. When combining the full formula of those three advantages it results in what we believe is the best way to encapsulate and support our most premium folders.


Opening via the flipper

While knife is closed, hold knife firmly allowing for knife opening to be clear to open blade. Then apply pressure with your index finger on the flipper. The more pressure, the faster the blade will fully open to locked position.

Unlocking the Blade

The blade will automatically secure when fully opened by the frame lock. To unlock the frame lock, simply push the left frame in the left direction with your thumb until blade is clear. Then push blade down to close. Be sure all fingers are clear before fully closing blade.

  1. Mike P

    got the absolute and the iconic with the mizpah light all for 145$ range using the coupon code. GREAT products. blades are razors and quality, centered and lock up tight. Shipping was right on time and came in nice cases. Only reason they dont get 5 stars is because had I not gotten clearance items with a code I would have a hard time paying retail for chinese products although they are of top notch quality.
    Good job factor

    Winner, Winner! Chicken Dinner! Love this knife. Great job guys! Now have my absolute knife and ghost light with me everyday. Keep raising the bar for everyone else.

  3. John Hayes

    Knife came razor sharp. Wonderfully smooth opening from the ball bearing flipper. Locking mechanism is flawless. Clip is titanium solid. Add all these together with the fact that the knife is just a wonderful looking product to showoff, and you have a winner. Thanks Factor for this product. I’ve already referred a half a dozen of my friends and family to this beauty.
