Citadel Trident Folder
For many years Citadel's line of knives was unavailable in North America. Just recently one of our vendors has picked the brand up and is importing them. Citadel knives combine imported European steels with the highest quality handle materials. Many of Citadel's fans were introduced to the brand through their exceptional samurai swords only to find that their devotion to quality extended to other types of knives.
The Citadel Trident folder has a 3-1/2" drop point blade of DNH7 high-carbon steel, hand forged and differentially hardened in the Japanese style by the skilled smiths at Citadel. The bevel is highly polished and zero ground (no secondary bevel) creating a long lasting and extremely sharp edge. The flats are untouched after the forging, leaving the forge scaling and marks left by the blacksmith's hammer blows. The handle scales are beautiful stabilized spalted Beech wood, which makes each one unique. That along with the hand-carved detail work on the spine and back spacer makes this a truly exceptional knife. Measures 4-5/8" closed. Weighs 4.7 oz. Ships with a padded nylon case with an embroidered Citadel logo. Made in Cambodia. Suggested retail is $225.00.
