Vulpex Knives Adds First Design to Bestech Corral This Year

Bestech, like many companies this month, is in the midst of a post-Blade Show product release rush. The latest one to hit shelves is the VK-Void, a hyper-futuristic folder from first time collaborator Vulpex Knives.

The VK-Void’s blade is a modified wharncliffe – modified, not so much in terms of the actual shape, as in its angle in relation to the handle. Rather than running out straight from the pivot, the VK-Void’s blade runs upward at a slant; in us, this means the straight, 2.85-inch edge slices like it has belly, as it approaches material at a similar bias. The raised blade also brings the elongated wharnie tip up to make piercing and punctuating easier. The VK-Void’s blade is made from Elmax steel, a Bohler Uddeholm super steel that fits everyday carry like a glove.

There are two ways to open the VK-Void. A front flipper is included for those who are fidget factor-inclined, while a thumb cutout on the blade itself provides a second, and also ambidextrous, way to deploy the knife. You may notice that copper stud in a relief cut in the opening hole; it’s not a thumb stud, just an accent piece, a signature Vulpex element on both customs and other production stuff.

The handle also indicates that this is a Vulpex design. A look through the Vulpex Instagram account shows a number of blades with a similar, unobtrusive grip, a streamlined profile that looks cool and falls into the hand with total naturalness. The scales are full titanium of course, with a good ol’ frame lock on the off-side, capped by the usual steel interface element. The last detail on the handle is the pocket clip, which, like the scales, is made from sculpted titanium. The VK-Void weighs 3.39 oz.

The VK-Void has just arrived with US dealers.
