Strider SMF : Green Aluminum


Recently I was gifted this 'very special to me' Strider SMF Aluminum by a very special person. So far I was familiar with the Ti/G10 handle. This aluminum is not as smooth as it might look. The surface feels slightly rigid and with the handle grooves it still provides enough grip. Besides all this, the engraved Strider logo is a real pretty addition. Also new to the standard SMF is the blade steel grade. For years it has been CPM-S30V and is now replaced by CPM-S35VN (*). For now, enjoy my photos !!
