RUIKE P138-B / P138-W, tanto blade, roller bearing, safety lock
RUIKE P138-B / P138-W is a practical cutting tool owing to its robust tanto blade. Made of 14C28N stainless steel in fine polish, and shaped to an optimal tanto style, the blade features razor sharpness and fairly strong tip. The built-in roller bearing pivot secures quick blade deployment once you get the flipper down. In addition to the liner lock, a back safety lock reinforces while wielding the knife in working. The G10 handle is ergonomically grooved to be skid-proof for comfortable holding and performs well regardless of harsh environments.
P138-B is the black colour handle version.
P138-W is the sand colour handle version.

(1) Sandvik 14C28N Stainless Steel, 58~60 HRC
Sandvik 14C28N is a martensitic stainless chromium steel with a chemistry optimized for high quality professional knife applications which put very high demands on edge sharpness, edge stability and corrosion resistance. As to this knife, the 14C28N is intensively processed by RUIKE using quenching and subzero treatment, which features an ideal hardness of 58~60 HRC.
(2) G10 Knife Handle
RUIKE knife handles are a blend of fiberglass and resin, giving the knives the ability to withstand intense forces, preventing scrapes and general abrasion.
(5) Safety Lock
Pushing the safety lock up can make the locking mechanism more reliable and secure in preventing accidental blade closure during use.

The pivot that connects the blade and handle is a roller bearing structure, which ensures that deploying the blade is a safe, quick and smooth action.
