Medford Proxima - S35VN Blade Steel Tumbled Blade Finish Standard Grind Blue Anodized "Lightning" Handles Standard Hardware Clip
The Proxima started life as the Gigantes. For folks that wanted a larger than life knife it was awesome, but for the rest of planet Earth an adjustment in attitude was required. We drew-down the overall length to 8.8″ with a 4.9″ closed length for the pocket and 3.9″ blade length. All materials are of 3/16″ nominal stock, making for a very EDC friendly thickness. We played with several twists on the original name but as the prototype was carried by Greg, he kept saying, This knife is too awesome to get a spin-off name. Since every time anyone needed to look at the prototype it was in Greg’s pocket… always near, thus: Proxima. This is THE knife carried by Greg these days. As he says: I love the flipper/hilt and the basic meanness of this thing! It just looks bad ass and I look for reasons to snap it out all day What else can we say?
This Proxima is awesome. The colors you can get from different angles are brilliant. Made with S35VN Blade Steel and a Tumbled Blade Finish, the Standard Grind is pronounced. Blue Anodized "Lightning" Handles finished Standard Hardware and Clip she's ready for the pocket, dress or hiking.
