The Delegate Gentleman 1053W the smaller Delegate model with a satin finished 8Cr14MoV stainless steel blade. The handle features a black G10 bolster perfectly inlaid with Cocobolo wood scales over a sturdy InterFrame with stainless steel liners. The Delegate also features a high-mounted stainless steel pocket clip.
The Delegate series utilizes CRKT's OutBurst® assisted opening technology in tandem with the patent-pending Fire Safe™ pin release mechanism which is built into the thumb stud to prevent unintended engagement. To open the blade, simply press in on the Fire Safe thumb stud, and rotate it forward to begin blade opening. Once the blade is open about 30 degrees, the OutBurst assist takes over and instantly completes the opening action. This one-handed opening is a fast, single movement of the thumb.
