The Millit Torrent 2nd Gen with Damasteel Overlay
Nick Shabazz


Published on Mar 17, 2018
Today, we'll take a close look at a brand new piece, the second generation Millit/TJ Schwarz Torrent, which has been turned up to 11.

Oh, thanks a pantload for posting that. So now I know about "damasteel" and won't rest easy until I buy yet another EXTREMELY expensive pocket knife. Wow, but those blades are beautiful and now they perform with the best of the super steels.
