Serge’s Orbit is the brainchild of Serge and Gavin from G&G Hawk, built as a collaboration project that marries Serge’s design with Gavin’s input, along with the Hawk Lock locking mechanism hardware. The Orbit is made by Millit Knives in Idaho, who does all the finish work except for the antiquing that Serge is famous for. The blade is stonewashed CTS-204P and the handle is a titanium frame which can be finished with copper or titanium overlays. When the Orbit is open, it measures at 7-inches, closed at 4 3/8-inches, with a blade length at 3-inches. The back of the Orbit is fitted with a titanium belt clip for tip-up carry. The flip open works smoothly, opening in a split second, and locking with a slide lock from Hawk.
Overall, I fell in love with the Orbit and have a great amount of respect for the Bean. The Bean is quite small and very light, and will work best for folks who don’t wish to carry an EDC knife that adds a lot of weight and size to ones burden. But the Orbit is the star, as far as I’m concerned. Why? Because the Orbit has a unique cleaver blade, it looks amazing, photographs amazing (as you can tell), and works so smoothly. The look and feel for both is quite sharp, eye-catching and adds a dynamic design to an already unique style of pocket folding blade.
