It means “fibreglass reinforced nylon” which is a plastic material used in manufacturing knife handles because it’s lightweight, long wearing and not prohibitively expensive.
The FRN Cara Cara 2 has slip-free texture, deeply moulded into the plastic, so it won’t slide or move around in the hand.
Nested inside the handle are full-length steel liners, adding rigidity and strength without unnecessary weight and phosphor bronze bushings for smooth open/close.
The 8Cr13MoV stainless steel blade is hollow-ground with a comet shaped hole so the folder opens and closes one-handedly.
On top of the blade’s spine is a series of cross-hatching the knife industry calls jimping.
Jimping creates tactile resistance, gripping the thumb and keeping it in contact with the top of the blade while cutting.
Features a 4-way pocket clip for left or right-handed, tip-up or tip-down carry.
Cut out of the lock’s release is a safety feature called a David Boye Dent, allowing you to tightly grip the handle without fear of accidentally releasing the lock.
