This model has a D2 blade steel with superior edge retention and the additional black oxide coating provides better corrosion resistance. The knife now features a flipper tab for fast and easy blade deployment. The black G-10 handle scales have good ergonomics and the frame lock design provides secure black lockup.
Nitecore NTP30 is a sleek and functional Titanium bolt-action pen that features a bi-directional bolt action mechanism.

Strong Titanium clip makes it easy to clip
the pen in your pocket or bag.
