The Mektig Fire (Current Lead Time is 16-18+/- Months)
Mektig means “Powerful”, and Fire means “4” in Norwegian.
The Mektig Fire has the familiar style you came to know with the V1, but with some additional modifications and improvements to bring it into a new class of knife. We have learned a lot about the subtle nuances of things over the last few years and wanted to bring everything we can to the table on this model. Improved design, smoother lines, better ergonomics, stop pin placement and many other enhancements are on this design. Imagine it as if you purchased the same car you drive now, but four years newer. We have even made more improvements since the prototype!
Blade: The Mektig Fire features a Wharncliffe style hand ground blade with a flat ground front and hollow ground main/top bevel. The grinding or stock removal of the steel on the blade is achieved on a 2×72 vertical knife grinder. The blade is then prepared, and heat treated in house to maintain quality and precision during such a crucial and often overlooked step of the process. The opening action is found on a sleek and non-obtrusive flipper tab that fires the blade open on caged ceramic ball bearings.
Handles: The handles on the Mektig Fire are made from US made Aerospace Grade 5 6AL4V Titanium. This grade of titanium allows for the proper function of the lock bar as well as more accurate machining and overall, more dependable outcome for the mechanics and finishes. The Mektig Fire features jimping on the hardened glass breaker in the tail section for better grip in defensive fighting position/balance and gives you the ability to break glass or adjust attitudes. All the machining, sanding, sculpting, and customizing is done in house by hand individually for every part on the knife.
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 also US made from titanium using a precision Swiss Screw machine. The hardened precision pivot barrel features a .250 outside diameter to ensure the strongest hinge-point for the blade without compromising the integrity of the blade strength. Holding the pivot and knife assembly together is also titanium pivot screws on both sides.
