    This is a variation of my original "Riptide" design that I have been making for several years. This blade is designed for pikal applications, and would make an excellent EDC defensive blade or "anti gun grab" tool.

    The blade is made from .187" D2 steel, and features a full flat grind. I performed all heat treat and tempering operations. The blade is tempered to 60 HRC for excellent edge holding characteristics. The blade features my "Paleolithic" finish, and is slightly darker than it appears in pictures.

    The handle is constructed from black G10 that is secured to the tang via 3 screws. The knife is very secure in hand, and handles very well.

    The blade is obviously designed for hooking/pulling movements, but is also well suited for stabbing or drawpoint methods!

    This is a great carry blade for Pikal/Edge In fans!

    Thanks!

    I've edited my previous post; this one sold last year. I simply forgot to update the thread.
