The Fox Knife Radius FX-550 CFB is an impressive and remarkable pocket knife. At the 2019 Blade Show in Atlanta, Georgia USA this knife won awards for the best imported knife and Overall Knife of the Year. The Fox Knife Radius is a revolutionary pocket knife. The thumb stud is added to the handle and also functions as a lock. It’s really unique! By pushing the thumb stud you can unlock the knife to make sure you can close it. No one has ever done that.
The blade is made from high-tech Böhler M390 steel. One of the most popular types of steel on the market. It retains its sharpness for a really long time. As such you hardly have to sharpen the knife. So a really cool blade. But what about the handle? It is made from carbon fibre. We have seen that before. The unique thing, however, is that the carbon fibre is enhanced with copper. Not the strands you sometimes see, but it looks like the copper was woven through the carbon fibre. Stunning. It looks great in combination with the copper-coloured screws, pocket clip and thumb stud.
