The Arven F-Type
Arven is translated as “Royalty” or “Legacy” in Norwegian and the “F” is for Flipper.
The Arven F-Type is based on the Arven, one of the most aggressive designs to ever leave the S6 Lab, but with a shorter blade (for regulation compliance) and a flipper tab. With the ability to open it by thumb, flip or flick, there is always a way to get the blade to rapidly deploy. The balance with the hardened breaker and the lightening/grip windows in the handle make this knife a versatile blade in all environments.
Blade: The Arven F features an American tanto style hand ground blade with a flat ground front and hollow ground main bevel. The grinding or stock removal of the steel on the blade is achieved on a 2x72 vertical knife grinder. The blade is then prepared, and heat treated in house to maintain quality and precision during such a crucial and often overlooked step of the process. The opening action is found on a window in the blade that fires the blade open using the thumb or flick method on caged ceramic ball bearings.
Handles: The handles on the Arven F are made from US made Aerospace Grade 5 6AL4V Titanium. This grade of titanium allows for the proper function of the lock bar as well as more accurate machining and overall, more dependable outcome for the mechanics and finishes. The Arven F features jimping on the hardened glass breaker in the tail section for better grip in defensive fighting position/balance and gives you the ability to break glass or adjust attitudes. All the machining, sanding, sculpting, and customizing is done in house by hand individually for every part on the knife.
Clip and Hardware: The clip is made from the same trusted 6Al4V titanium as the handles and is machined and hand finished to give the right tension in the pocket without compromising on looks or quality. The hardware is also US made from titanium using a precision Swiss Screw machine. The hardened precision pivot barrel features a .250 outside diameter to ensure the strongest hinge-point for the blade without compromising the integrity of the blade strength. Holding the pivot and knife assembly together is also titanium pivot screws on both sides.
