The Version 2 of the Varangian -or- Varangian Magnus. This cleaver has the familiar style you came to know with the V1, but with some additional modifications to make it an almost different knife in the hand. This is a limited run knife of only 25 being made. All knives are signed and numbered with certificates of authenticity.Blade:The Varangian Magnus features a highly modified hand ground blade with a flat ground front, "gutting grooves" and hollow ground main bevel. The action is found on an aggressive flipper tab that fires the blade open on caged stainless-steel ball bearings. The steel has a final thickness approximately .200 thick, and is precision surfaced, stamped, heat-treated, ground and finished 100% in house by hand.Handles:The handles on the Varangian Magnus are made from aerospace grade 6Al4V Titanium over .160 thick. This grade of titanium allows for the proper function of the lock-bar as well as more accurate machining and overall more dependable outcome. The Varangian Magnus features a glass-breaker and frame braces, which also act as a lock over-travel guard. All the machining, sanding, sculpting and customizing is done in house by hand.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 made in the US out of stainless steel and then hand sized in house for each knife made. The pivot barrel features a .250 outside diameter to ensure the strongest hinge-point for the blade without compromising the integrity of the blade strength.100% US Made from US materials in custom hand finished packaging.
