The TNB is a compact everyday folding knife that features the right balance of simplicity, performance, and functionality.
The stonewashed blade made in Sandvik 14C28N steel has a classic clip point style, characterized by a thin swedge making for a more aggressive appeal. The G10 handle is equally as eye catching with a 3D texture reminiscent of the TNB molecule, 1,3,5-Trinitrobenzene, an organic compound primarily used as an high explosive (it is more powerful than TNT), after which the knife is named.
The TNB features an easy-to-use button-lock mechanism and the blade, deployed with a flipper, opens smoothly and quickly thanks to the ball bearing pivot system.

“If you can recognize a knife only by its silhouette, it means that the designer has done a great job!”
“I have chosen every knife I own, the Hecate chose me...Once I got it in my hands I knew it was mine forever...My Hecate from @hydra_knifedesign is definitely at the top of my list! ”
“The blade is really slicey, but imagine cutting for one hour without feeling any hot spots! The handle is an ergonomic materpiece designed by Alessandra De Santis.”
