Antarctic 2 - Cotton Candy


The Antarctic takes the proven Arctic platform to the next level. We retained the tried and tested Arctic blade, bushing system, and unique barrel spacer construction and added a fresh handle design to create the Antarctic. The Antarctic features tapered handles that provide a neutral flipping experience, with improved grip and control compared to the Arctic.

Our latest revision, the Antarctic 2, brings updates centred around improving acoustics, tactile feel and durability. Changes include a revised tang profile, improved zen pin system, deeper handle milling, larger handle jimping and thicker pivot screws that are less prone to stripping.
