Boasting a solid titanium construction, the Bestech Small Emperor definitely carries the weight of its name. Armed with a 3.1-inch drop-point blade made from premium S35VN steel, it’s ready for battles big and small. The titanium frame lock ensures the blade doesn’t fail, even when it’s pushed to the limits. At the base of the handle you’ll find a milled insignia influenced by the Orient—a nod to the folder’s namesake. Jimping on the blade spine inspires confidence in the hand. In the pocket, find confidence in the low-profile titanium clip, which is done in an offsetting color for added style.

Developed by Crucible Industries (one of the leading manufacturers of specialty steels for the cutlery industry) and Chris Reeve (pioneer of the integral frame lock, featured on the Gent), S35VN is perhaps the most balanced blade steel ever created in terms of all-around performance. It’s made through a process known as Crucible Powdered Metallurgy, which results in near perfect consistency in the distribution of carbides. Compared to conventional melting practices, the CPM process produces a steel characterized by superior dimensional stability, grindability, and toughness.
