These are the first two Orions made, they're the original prototypes I put together after the CAD redesign and switch from G10 handles to titanium. These are absolute tanks. Blades are .2 inch precision ground ATS-34 with a professional heat treat from East Carolina Heat Treat and nitrogen quenching, with 5 inches of cutting surface (this is a larger Balisong). The handles are .23 inch thick 6Al4V Ti that have been hand profiled with 6Al4V Ti precision ground backspacers.
The knives feature a Begg pin derivative system, meaning the stop pins are in the inside of the blade, leaving no external tang pins or zen pins. They have custom made PB washers that keep dust from entering the system. The knives have Ti internals with quarter inch precision ground pivots and a PB bushing system, so the action is increadibly smooth.
Each blade is hand ground with a lum style tanto grind and has a mosaic pin inlay set in the tang of the blade.
Price is 650$ (675$ via regular paypal w/ no mention of knives or USPS MO) a piece for either the satin/cosmic anodized knife or the polished/mirror anodized knife. Each ships the same day as payment is recieved in a foam lined Pelican hardcase and comes with a life-time warranty. Handmade in Apex, NC.
