USA -(Ammoland.com)- When Ontario Knife Company (OKC) recently introduced the Carter Prime, it quickly became a top seller, and for good reason.
The Prime was designed by Robert Carter (son of longtime OKC designer Joe Pardue and grandson of legendary designer Mel Pardue) to be world class and it proved to be so.
Now, fans of the Carter Prime can look forward to the knife’s sequel: the Carter 2quared (pronounced: ‘squared’). Like its precursor, this new design by Robert Carter has been built with premium materials for uncompromised use in the field.
The design of the Carter 2quared is clearly aggressive, intended to reflect its overbuilt nature. “The vision for our collaboration with Robert Carter is to create products that engender absolute confidence,” said Deneb Pirrone, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at OKC. “This product is built to perform dependably throughout a lifetime of vigorous overuse. The Carter 2quared looks like it wants to be used and this work ethic is reflected in its ability to perform.”
The foundation of the Carter 2quared starts with its titanium handle. Titanium has the highest strength-to-density ratio of any metallic element, and includes inherent corrosion resistance, including in saltwater environments.
Plus, titanium is an ultra-lightweight material, which minimizes weight in pocket or pack. The ergonomic handle is designed for sure grip in slippery situations.
The business end of the Carter 2quared is a 3.55-inch (9.02 cm) drop-point blade constructed of D2 Steel. This metal features elevated chromium levels for superior corrosion and stain resistance while maintaining a hardness of 59-60 HRC.
Since this is a very hard tool steel, the knife is considerably abrasion resistant and durable in the face of heavy use. The titanium frame lock is designed to keep the blade in place even under considerable stress. With the blade open, the overall length spans 8.375 inches (21.31 cm).
The OKC Carter 2quared is made in Taiwan and designed and distributed in the USA.
