Kingdom Armory Bench Series Framelock Rogue Gen 2 - Acid-Wash "Dark Side"
Never before available unless built by hand as a full blown custom, Kingdom Armory is proud to officially release a very special collaboration project between Chad Nichols of Nichols Damascus and Dave Rydbom of Kingdom Armory. These guys have come together in the past to bring uniquely original knives to market, the last time for Mission Workshop in Dave's Unagi design.
- Acid-Wash "Dark Side" model - 6al4v Titanium framelock - 3D milled w/solid backspacer and billet milled Ti clip inset into a recessed pocket for durability - all Ti is blasted and tumbled - Hand ground blade in CTS-XHP wearing a "Dark Side" finish - essentially a very dark acid-washed, tumbled and oiled finish - custom hardware fabricated by Steve Kelly of Ti Connector. Each knife fully disassembled, inspected, tuned, adjusted and hand sharpened by Dave Rydbom personally.
These particular Bomber edition folders had frame, clips and backspacer precisioned machined by Chad Nichols of Nichols Damascus in Blue Springs, MS. Chad. Making a few changes over the previous release, this is Rogue Gen 2. Complete 3D machined cc'd contour to the frame this time, making for an extremely comfortable and easy-to-carry frame profile. Thumb release was added to aid in unlocking, while the bomb proof construction of one piece billet milled clips, backspacers, and the hinderer overtravel stop (LBSS) remain!
Designed in and named for the Valley in which Kingdom Armory exists, the Rogue and its sister knife the Rook were both created as a "spydie flicking" taylored design. (made for deployment using the middle finger) The oval slot is sized for easy thumb use if you'd prefer...but, "F" it! Use the bird, and be a little unique! Be a Rogue...
