Twist and Pivot Hinge
Charlie V’s are precision engineered with a world exclusive, patent pending twist and pivot hinge design that enables a more compact folding position. The visible stainless steel shell is produced in the USA from a leading edge 3D additive manufacturing system and comprises all stainless steel components beneath its handsomely rugged exterior.
This breakthrough design is great for slipping in your shirt pocket or stowing in an overhead bin inside your car. The arms are also less exposed to potential damage because they’re not bulging outward when folded.
The frames are tooled, produced and assembled in the USA. Employing time tested injection molding technologies, we use a Makrolon Polycarbonate material. It is unsurpassed for toughness and meets or exceeds the performance characteristics of any directly competitive product on the market today.
