FQFA002: Absolute One Large Titanium
Factor Equipment

The Absolute One is the first knife in the Absolute series. This knife is built to be a titanium workhouse, while still keeping a uniquely elegant appearance. You'll notice high-quality components right out of the package. The titanium 4.53" handles enclose the stonewashed drop point blade made of Bohler's M390 super high-grade steel. The opening mechanism begins with a simple flip launched by the slight push of a finger and controlled by a ceramic ball bearing system. The blade secures via its titanium frame lock and is finished with a titanium pocket clip (tip-up). Includes polishing cloth, black nylon pouch and one-piece pivot adjustment multi-tool.

M390 Steel (Bohler-Uddeholm)

M390 is considered by many on the market to be a super steel due to its excellent corrosion/stain resistance and wonderful hardness/high wear resistance. It's produced via a third generation powder metal technology and can reach a 60-62 HRC. Bohler calls this steel "microclean" and it can be polished to a mirror finish. Like many hard steels, the tradeoff on this steel's most excellent blade retention is that it can be moderately difficult to sharpen, but just moderate. Due to all these fine qualities you can commonly find this used in not only custom knives around the world, but it's also extremely popular in surgical applications.

Titanium

Factor Equipment uses titanium in many of their handles, clips, and liner and frame locking materials. They value it for three main advantages: Strength, appearance, and light weight. When combining the full formula of those three advantages, it results in what they believe is the best way to encapsulate and support their most premium folders.

Pros: Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Blade Material
Cons: Pocket Clip, None
Almost perfect...
Owned it over a month now, carrying every day. The blade comes sharp but can be super sharp with a little touch up, very fine grained steel makes for an amazing edge. The blade opens quite smoothly with no play in the mechanism. All the edges of the handle are de-burred and the knife feels great in the hand. The only con is the pocket clip, the little nub inside is a very sharp triangle and will rip your pants up in short order (two pair gone)! I took off the clip and had to remove a bit of metal to get a more smooth profile to that nub, you'll have to re-tension it too since it will no longer meet the knife body with that much material gone. Overall a very nice purchase, fix the clip and you have the perfect EDC.
