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 thinking- 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?
material: .1875 or 3/16" nominal
assembled thickness: .625" or 5/8"
