What Toor Knives says:
At Toor Knives, our goal is to always move forward and innovate! For the last two years we have continued to develop and fine tune our Folding Series knives. Since first introducing our folders in 2020, we have relentlessly reworked, engineered, and redeveloped them from the initial, basic designs into what they are today. Now, we are proud to announce the latest advancements on our Chasm XLT folding knife!
The Chasm was originally designed as a small footprint pocketknife with the ability to tackle heavy tasks. During our first year of production, we noticed an overwhelming demand for the Tanto blade variation, and with this feedback in mind we set out to make a few substantial improvements to the design. Our most notable upgrade to the new Chasm XLT is the overall thickness of the blade – it has almost doubled to a whopping 0.2" thick! This allows for much more mass in the steel at the tip giving it improved strength.
Next, we introduced a billet titanium milled clip, which offers substantially more strength than our previous bent clips. Our new clips are machined from 6al-4v titanium, also with a starting thickness at over 0.2" thick, which is plenty of titanium for the clip to last a lifetime! Additionally, we’ve added a lockbar overtravel screw which prevents stress that could ultimately lead to lockup failures. This lockbar screw is custom machined by our talented in-house team here at Toor Knives and made from titanium like the rest of the hardware.
The new Chasm XLT also offers an innovative thumb stud design with a smooth tapered finish. We’ve improved the lockup action on the knife, and the open stop position is held secure by the titanium thumb studs. To ensure maximum thread retention on the thumb studs, we've added a T8 Torx driver head to allow for tightening. We have also provided a G10 backspacer with a lanyard hole to add to the overall rigidity of the frame, and the top of the G10 backspacer is machined with jimping notches for extra grip in the palm. Every Chasm XLT features a Black Oxide blade finish on CPM 154 steel and textured G10 show-side scale, offered in either Stealth or Carbon.
