Fox Radius FX-550 DCFR CF Damascus folding knife 1 -of only 103 made
The Fox Radius folding knife is equipped with an innovative opening mechanism, the patented Fingers Safe Opening System. The rotating mechanism is operated by a knob located within thumb reach. The blade opens and locks by gently pressing this button and then sliding it. The blade is closed again by a backward rotation. This exceptional pocket knife was designed by Denis Simonutti, a young knifemaker from Italy. Gysinge Damasteel is used for the blade steel, and the ultra-modern "Space Coral" Copper Infused Carbon Fiber Handles are ergonomically curved, for a comfortable grip. Includes removable pocket clip (tip-up), pink anodized titanium to match the thumb stud.
The Fox Knives Radius FX-550 DCFR is a remarkable pocket knife. At the 2019 Blade Show in Atlanta, Georgia US this knife won an award for the best imported knife, and for Overall Knife of the Year. That is already special to begin with, but with this Limited Edition Fox has decided to take things up a notch. Exceptional materials and unique packaging. Only 103 pieces were made of this model.
We already mentioned it just now: exclusive materials. Fox Knives definitely outdid themselves here. The blade is made from Damacore damasteel from the Swedish damasteel manufacturer.
So a cool blade. But what about the handle? It is made from carbon fibre. Something we have seen before. The difference, however, is that this carbon fibre is enhanced with copper. Not the threads you sometimes come across, but it looks like a liquid form of copper was woven into the carbon fibre.
Such a unique knife needs a cool box. A luxurious gift box with a drawer that contains the knife. But on top you find something very unique: the remaining piece of Damacore the knife was cut from! Numbered even! It is a very cool way to complete the whole. In the bottom of the box you will find a luxurious leather sheath, made from fine Italian leather.
