    This one is SOLD thanks for looking


    Here is one of my popular "Beast" patterns, I hand shape the scales with files to get great ergos and comfort. I prefer using CPM 3V on this knife as it is intended to be a serious user and we chose to put Cerakote on this one for easier maintenance.

    Specs:
    Blade Steel: CPM 3V with Tungsten Cerakote
    Blade Thickness: 1/4"
    Blade Length: 7 7/8" tip to plunge
    Overall Knife Length: 13 5/8"
    Blade Width: 1 1/2"
    Black G10 scales and stainless steel screws
    Kydex sheath with Large Tek-Lok




    Price is $295.00 US funds Shipped, shipping and insurance will be USPS to Con US. Outside US will pay actual shipping and insurance costs.

    Payment methods accepted are Paypal ( [email protected] ), USPS Money Order or Personal Check (Which will need to clear before shipping).

    Thanks for looking,

    That is very nice! I think you meant the overall length was 13" not the blade right? I'm curious how well the cerakote holds up after a lot of chopping/batoning, have you tested that?

    Fishface5 yes the overall length is 13 5/8" thanks I clarified my wording. On the Cerakote, I have been using it since December last year and have a few blades out there in use and last I seen of them the finish was holding up very well. Here is a link to some lab testing http://www.roguetacticalcoatings.com/#!cerakote-lab-tests



    Thanks snwbrdr202, Idlewild and Gunsnknives



    awestib, preheat treat I grind these to .020" at the cutting edge and with post heat treat clean up it maybe reduced another .005" at the edge. So taking a guess here I would say the very edge was around .015" since I do not measure this after I scribe my .020" grind lines. Hope that answers your question if not please ask again.

    Mike,

    I am very pleased. The knife showed up in today's mail. Fast shipping, the blade is as described. The fit and finish are absolutely first rate. It's sharp, and cuts like a bandit. What is not to love? :D
