Product Description

Magnum continues the tradition of its annual knives and presents the Collection 2023, a collector's knife with exceptional appeal. Enthusiastic knife collectors all over the world will once again be faced with the choice of whether the knife should find its place in the display case or on the belt. Lucas Burnley, who is considered one of the most renowned knife designers in the world and has already launched several successful knife series for Boker and Boker Plus, was won over for this special project. The knifemaker from the US state of Oregon knows how to combine clear lines with tactical influences in his designs like no other. The Magnum Collection 2023 is an impressive full tang outdoor knife with a massive D2 blade that has a pronounced ricasso and an unusual two-tone finish. The designer alternates between a horizontal and vertically drawn hairline finish on the blade, which underlines the special appeal of the fixed blade knife. The attention to detail also continues in the contoured handle. Perfect haptics, effortless work and a noble look - the black handle scales made of polished Micarta speak their own language. The scope of delivery includes a high-quality leather sheath with two press studs to secure it, an exclusive collector's box and a certificate of authenticity. The Magnum Collection 2023 is strictly limited to 1999 pieces worldwide.

Lucas Burnley of Oregon has been a full-time custom knifemaker and designer since 2003. His distinctive knives blend clean, modern lines with tactical origins-a style Lucas identifies as Post-Tactical. His designs for fixed blades and pocket knives are both playful and sophisticated and often incorporate subtle neo-Japanese elements. Above all he believes that utility shouldn't come at the cost of beauty. In addition to Pocketknives and handy Fixed Blades, he also designs his own accessories.

With a chromium content of 12%, D2 – a tool steel – can certainly be classified as a stainless steel. Since its chromium content is right on the threshold, however, a little more care for the D2 wouldn't go amiss. As an upper-tier conventional steel, D2 offers great edge retention and stability, though sharpening it takes a little effort.

Micarta is a composite material used to make knife handles. It is based on fibers and epoxy resin. Micarta is sturdy and lightweight, which makes it a popular material not just for exclusive knife handles but also for a variety of high-tech applications.

The fiber/plastic composite known today as Micarta was developed in 1910 by the American engineer George Westinghouse. Micarta is the original brand name given to the material by its US producer General Electric. Today, Micarta is a common term for similar fiber/plastic composites made by several manufacturers.

All of these composite materials have in common that they consist of at least two different base materials which are bonded together but retain their own structure. Therefore, composite materials combine the different properties of their base materials. They are usually developed to offer all the advantages of comparable conventional materials at a much lighter weight. That is why they are mainly used in high-tech applications where weight reduction is a priority (e.g. in aircraft or vehicle construction) but also where the use of light materials makes for easy and pleasant handling, e.g. in the production of high-quality knives.

Micarta has all the usual characteristics of composite materials. It is a combination of absorptive fibers (e.g. wood, linen or cellulose) and a synthetic resin (mainly epoxy or phenol resin). To make Micarta, the fibers are saturated with resin. When the resin is cured, the composite material can be processed, usually by grinding or sanding. Micarta is extremely dense and resilient. It also offers a high level of dimensional stability, which means that it retains its measurements even under changing environmental conditions, such as varying temperatures or humidity levels. Micarta is pleasant to the touch and offers a firm, comfortable grip. Like all other composite materials, it is very light compared to metals.
