SLIC­ING THROUGH

Passage Maker - - 2018 Gift Guide -

I know ab­so­lutely noth­ing about knives other than how well they cut. But a friend is, shall we say, ob­sessed with them, and swears by his New Tor­rent blade from Seate. The con­trap­tion of this sin­gle-bladed beauty couldn’t be sim­pler: the bal­ance and heft of the knife feels like some­thing that you need to ex­pe­ri­ence in or­der to un­der­stand. This New Tor­rent sports a ti­ta­nium han­dle, fin­ished in a nicely tex­tured bead blast. The 8.5” knife (blade ex­tended) is forged from Bohler M390, a cor­ro­sion-re­sis­tant, pol­ish­able plas­tic molded-steel, that is ground to a thick­ness of .157.” The to­tal pack­age weighs 6.2 ounces and is truly a sight to be­hold.
