The Mektig V2
Mektig means “Powerful” in Norwegian and the V2 signifies that this is the 2nd variation of the Mektig design.
The Mektig V2 is a sleek and high-speed version of the original Mektig. Just by viewing the two knives side by side you can see the familiarities and appreciate the differences. With very few straight lines designed into the handles, this knife has an instinctive and more organic feel in the hand. Lightening windows in the handle, lock-side and blade make this overbuilt folder exceptionally light weight without compromising on strength and confidence.
Blade: The Mektig V2 features an American tanto style hand ground blade with a flat ground front and high 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 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 V2 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 Mektig V2 features jimping on the tail section for better grip in defensive fighting positions. 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 without compromising the integrity of the blade strength. Holding the pivot and knife assembly together are titanium pivot screws on both sides.
