Marfione Custom Anax Chad Nichols Blue Raindrop Damascus Flamed Ti Pre-Owned
The Anax is a superb piece of design from Tony Marfione that turned heads at the recent 2014 BLADE Show. The Anax is an integral frame knife. This means the frame of the knife is machined from one solid chunk of titanium rather than having a separate backspaced or stand offs. Besides the "cool guy" factor of the engineering it takes to do it, it results in a very solid feeling folder.
The pocket clip is machined titanium with a silicon nitride bearing insert to make it easy to slip over the ridge in your pocket The Anax comes with a devil's tail lanyard in titanium with a steel braided line. This can be easily removed by unscrewing and Tony hinted that there is more to come for this interface to customize your knife Lockbar features a replaceable 17-4 stainless interface for solid lock up The raindrop damascus steel blade has a full length fuller groove to make the Anax easy to open regardless of grip Blade rides on a ceramic bearing system for a smooth opening
Good design is really more than the sum of the parts/features. The Anax is a great feeling knife. It is very easy to carry for a larger folder and has a great blade to handle ratio. The solid integral frame has a very subtile wave on the flats. Tony has outdone himself on this one!
