VALVe's Erik Johnson has sent out a press release about Counter-Strike 1.6's new knife. It's not very relevant to most players, but it details just what the new knife is all about.
The new Counter-Strike knife is based on Mick Strider's award winning bowie. It is an integral design that started as a 1/2" thick slab of 6AL4V titanium. The edge is press-fit Stellite, and no bonding agent was needed or used as it is held in place due to the extremely precise fit between the titanium and Stellite. The handle is fossilized mastodon ivory held in a carbon fiber pocket.
Mick Strider is the founder and lead designer at Strider Knives, a premiere provider of knives to US military personnel, special operations, and LEOs.
The new knife is included with the Counter-Strike 1.6 BETA released yesterday.
