The “Supernova” is a collaboration between Faisal Yamin (designer) and Les Voorhies (maker). Sporting handsome handles made from lightning strike carbon fiber (LSCF) with silver wire, the Supernova has titanium liners and a zirconium* pocket clip, pivot, and back spacer. It has a blade length of 3.5″, cutting edge of 3.375″ and an overall length of 8″. The blade is made from carpenter CTS-XHP steel alloy, which has the corrosion resistance of 440C steel but the hardness/toughness of D2 tool steel. Shown here in an exclusive left-handed version!

Opinel pocket knives are one of the most popular and inexpensive pocket knives available. Knifemaker Ross Tyler modded the No4 carbon steel knife, which he describes as a “pimped up toxic post apocalyptic Steam punk’ish Opinel mod”.
The carbon steel no.4 Opinel blade was striped out then dark etched in ferric with a hint of copper. The Higonokami style one piece handle was beaten out of an old copper pipe, which was flattened then hammer hardened. It is secured with a kydex eyelet and a torx pivot and was then all etched, brass blackened and then stone washed for an aged effect.
