CPM S35VN (Crucibal Industries)
CPM S35VN is one of the most coveted knife steels in today’s premier and custom knives. Designed and developed in cooperation by one of the best custom knife makers in the US and released to the tool and knife community in his honored knives; this steel offers great edge retention, toughness, stain resistance and still easy to sharpen.

A martensitic stainless steel designed to offer improved toughness over crucibal’s S30V. It is also easier to machine and polish than CPM S30V. Its chemistry has been rebalanced so that it forms some niobium carbides along with vanadium and chromium carbides. Substituting niobium carbides for some of the vanadium carbides makes CPM S35VN about 15-20% tougher than CPM S30V without any loss of wear resistance. CPM S35VN’s improved toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping. Because both vanadium and niobium car bides are harder and more effective than chromium carbides in providing wear resistance, the CPM stainless blade steels offer improved edge retention over conventional high chromium steels such as 440C and D2.

The CPM process produces very homogeneous, high quality steel characterized by superior dimensional stability, grind ability, and toughness compared to steels produced by conventional melting practices.


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.

    Fantastic knife, I have them all and am a huge knife snob and bought this actually to experiment with sharpening and customozing the scales and when it showed up I was blown away. Seriously I have knives from every big make like Chris Reeve, Hinder,Hoback,Spyderco,Benchmade and this one is my most carried along with the kizer T1. Some good info as i’ve had for over a year and actually bought 4 I liked them so much, they are great,easy to sharpen, the knives comes apart for cleaning in minutes, has an amazing action and detent is perfect.. and this is not one sample but the four I’ve had. I love them and at this price don’t feel bad using them hard. Factor is also a good company as I had to make some calls and they were super helpful and sent me to the person who packs each order as I was wanting a carbon fiber one really badly and he was super helpful. I can say I would deal with them again although so far none of the new designs have been my style I have heard some good things about them in the reviews and on the forums/youtube.
