Voorhies/Yamin “Supernova” Lefty Carbon Fibre Folder
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!

* Zirconium is an exotic metal that is most commonly found in nuclear power stations because it does not absorb neutrons. It is also famed for its exceptional corrosion resistance to acids, alkalis, and seawater.
