UPK-M2 Lite


!!!!! RIGHT-HANDED for Right handed USERS !!!!!

The UPK-M2 Lite offers the design features of the original UPK-M2 with a lightweight and economical high strength 7075-T6 handle set and a blade made in one of the most optimized blade steels available, Sandvik 14C28N.

Blade:
Hand ground and hand finished blade made in Sandvik 14C28N Stainless Steel Hardened with Cryo to HRC 62 *last tested blade was HRC: 62.5.  The finish is a two-step blasting which includes a micro ball peening using ultra high density beads to create surface compression, a process that improves resilience to scratches and offers anti-fatigue properties.

Handle Finish: Type3 Hardcoat Anodized 7075-T6 Aluminum

   Made in the strongest Aluminum Alloy practical to make a handle from, the 7075-T6 Aluminum boasts a tensile strength of 80ksi which is well into steel strength territory.  The hardcoat anodize is a military specification thickness of anodize that provides a high strength skin of Aluminum oxide to improve durability and scratch resistance over standard anodize aluminum parts. 

DeepGrip or SuperGrip Included!

   Deep laser cut texture into the backside of the handle offers enhanced grip even in wet condition.  The Texture is created using deep engraving created using a fiber laser.

Available in Black, Navy Blue and Dark OD Green, the handles offer a stark contrast to the Blades micro peened surface.

Great design, build could be a bit better

I love the design and closing mechanism of this knife/tool. I use it mainly as a cutting tool. Only having to open it to it's quarter slot is convenient when I need to just cut a box open. I've been edc-ing it for a couple weeks now and there have been a couple build issues that have cropped up. The paint/finish on the aluminum handle has been "rolling up" where the bottom bolt sits which can at times cause my thumb to catch on it. The paint elsewhere also has some scuffs on it from just daily use it appears. The pocket clip has also become quite loose which should be easy enough to fix but I'm guessing this will need to be tightened from time to time. The tool otherwise has been great and feels very good in the hand. Thanks for making this unique tool!

Hey John, I would be happy to service your knife if you are willing to send it in, I want to provide the best tool I can and will happily cover the shipping and repairs to bring the knife up to optimal performance. Please let me know and I will send you a paid return label.

Thank you for your vauable feedback and support!
