The Mektig Schmedium
Mektig means “Powerful” in Norwegian and the “Schmedium” signifies, well… you get it.
The Mektig Schmedium is a direct yet shrunken down version of the original Mektig. For those that work in sensitive office building or those that prefer smaller yet still heavy use knives, this is the one for you. The first round of Mektig Schmedium builds featured a fuller with holes, where now every Schmedium moving forward will have a large window in the blade just as the original Mektig had. This knife has been extremely popular, and by being a tank of a folder but weighing in at 4.1 ounces, we can see why.
Blade: The Mektig Schmedium features a Wharncliffe 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 sleek and minimal 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 Mektig Schmedium 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 .187 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.
