The inspiration for the Invictus came from combining all of the good aspects from both its predecessor knives, the Sapient and the Menace, focusing on the flippability, comfort, and balance. We took the menace handles and slimmed them down to decrease the overall frame size, added and extended the jimping, and utilized side chamfers where the handle is gripped in order to give the handles a more rounded feel. We increased the washer thickness from 0.016″ to 0.02″ so that blade thickness and weight can be reduced. The blade tang was also redesigned to keep that extra material away so it doesn’t interfere with your fingers during flips. Also, the Invictus is being offered at a much lower price, who wouldn’t want that?

Purchase comes with a custom microfiber draw-string pouch, certificate of authenticity (COA), business card, and sticker.

There are a few blemishes on this knife, and are inconsistent machining finishes from the CNC. Please note, these are only visual and have no effect on the action or performance of the knife. The first blemish is on the blade bevel on the side of the serial number. One of the cutting passes on the bevel creates a distinct change in pattern. The second blemish is on the backside of each handle: There’s a line down the center where the facing endmill cut two passes that did not blend together properly. Lastly, the handle gaps between open and closed positions are noticeably different. It’s not extreme, but it’s enough for me to offer a discount for it. 0.5″ in the closed position and 0.345″ in the open position. Pictures below.
