Our goal in producing this new folder is to combine all of our recent technological advances in one heavy-duty tactical folder. We call it the Fire Spark™, and it is primarily intended for law enforcement and military professionals, although it also makes a fine general-purpose sport and work folder for those who want to carry a large knife. The innovative construction starts with our rigid InterFrame build with stainless steel liners, one locking. We add 6061 aluminum scales, which are CNC machined to receive black textured G10 inlays. The handle is a full 4.75″ long to be comfortable for those with large hands, or when wearing gloves, and features four finger choils to give optimum grip. The cross section is flat enough for in-pocket carry. Finally, there is a strong stainless steel back spacer that extends to the butt, which culminates in a “skull cracker” pointed tip. The back spacer is relieved to allow a double lanyard loop to be cut in the stainless steel liners. The blade on the Fire Spark is a modified tactical spear point design with a Razor-Sharp edge, high hollow grind and swedged top edge for penetration. Blade steel is premium 8Cr14MoV stainless steel. The sport model 1050 has a high satin blade finish, silver anodized frames, and polished three-position stainless steel clip. We have combined our OutBurst® assisted opening with our patent-pending1 Fire Safe™ mechanism. When closed, the blade is safely locked by the Fire Safe pin. It cannot be opened until the thumb stud is firmly pressed and nudged outward. Then the blade springs open instantly for use. The system assures fast opening action even in cold weather and when wearing gloves. Finally, to maintain lockup in high-stress situations, we’ve incorporated the patented2 LAWKS® safety, which effectively converts the folder into a virtual fixed blade when the LAWKS lever is pressed forward. The Fire Spark is the most fully featured tactical folder we have ever offered, and it is also a great value.
