The Impulse, designed by custom knifemaker Darrel Ralph combines the ultimate of form and function in a modern cutting tool for todays urban and outdoor lifestyles. Precision die cast aluminum handles are fully contoured for maximum comfort and feature Trimond TM textured KratonR innerframes for extra security and grip control.
