Gear Steel Will Knives Apostate Incoming April 16, 2016 Join the Conversation New York NY based Steel Will Knives, a division of SMG, told us a little while back they have added a new knife — the Apostate — to their tactical series. Here’s what they have to say about it. Steel Will Knives Apostate Folding Knife The Apostate offers superior performance and features quality materials not typically found in this price range. It’s designed to be comfortably carried every day and built to withstand the toughest tasks. This top of the line folding knife is extremely durable and comes straight from the factory with a razor sharp edge. The business end of the Apostate is constructed of S35VN powdered steel that measures just over 4 inches in length and has a muted dark grey finish to resist wear and corrosion. The Apostate’s handle combines two materials, titanium and G10, reducing the overall weight without compromising its structural integrity. The calibrated balance and use of ceramic ball bearings allows the Apostate to easily open with one finger and also features a high strength titanium frame lock which securely locks the blade open. The Apostate is available with a predatory drop point (1108) or powerful tanto (1113) blade, equally providing superior cutting capabilities.
