The Baby Blomst

 

Blomst means “Flower” in Norwegian and the “Baby” signifies that this model is significantly smaller than the original Blomst design.

 

The Blomst was Katie’s first knife design.  When she became a full-time addition to Scorpion 6 Knives, she wanted to understand every aspect of how a knife was made.  From a rough sketch all the way to sharpening her first knife, she completed every step.  The original Blomst was the largest folding knife in our history, and a dedicated left-hand lock-side configuration.  To make is more suitable for everyone it was sized down and designed right-handed.  This is a significant piece of Scorpion 6 history, and something that we are enormously proud of as a husband/wife team.

 

Blade: The Baby Blomst features a bellied tanto style hand ground blade with a flat ground front and hollow ground main/top 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 slender yet resolute flipper tab that also acts as a guard to keep your hand from slipping forward.  This blade itself rides on American made caged ceramic ball bearings.

 

Handles: The handles on the Baby Blomst 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. 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 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 design without compromising the integrity of the blade strength.  Holding the pivot and knife assembly together are titanium pivot screws on both sides.
