The Firebird Company presented another universal model of a folding knife focused on tourists and fans of other kinds of active leisure. It has good parameters that are suitable for fishermen, hunters, workers who need additional tools. At the same time, the concise and stylish design chosen for the knife is also its advantage.
The blade of this model has a length of 8.7 cm with a maximum thickness of 0.33 cm. It is suitable for working with a variety of materials, as it sharpened smoothly, and the high hardness of the metal makes the cutting edge resistant to creasing. Manufacturers have chosen D2 quality steel for the Firebird FH12-SS blade. It is of semi-stainless steel on its characteristics so the knife is recommended to keep dry. This metal is quenched to a hardness of 60HRC. You will need some skill to sharpen such a knife; however, it is possible to do even in field conditions. Another feature of the Firebird FH12-SS is that the blade is almost opaque due to the metal grinding using Stone Washed method.
The handle is also entirely made of steel, although stainless metal is selected for it. It is very simple in form and has only a notch for fingers at the bottom. By the way, the knife opens by a fin and in the open form, it gives additional protection to fingers, continuing the line of this notch on the handle. In addition, a steel clip is bolted on the handle of the knife, which can be easily moved to the other side.
Work with a Firebird FH12-SS knife is absolutely safe due to the fact that its blade could be fixed in the open position by a built-in lock of Frame-lock design. This is a simple lock designed for long service with minimal care. The locking plate of it is one of the steel handle parts.
