This is a highly optimized, lightweight slicer that is well suited for defense or utility use. Despite the size, it makes an excellent carry blade The blade is made from .100" 1095 steel hardened to 60 - 61 HRC for outstanding edge retention. I performed all heat treat and tempering operations. The blade features an extremely fine satin finish that is both attractive and practical. The handle is exceptionally comfortable in either standard or reverse grip. Very grippy! The wrap is nylon and is impregnated with epoxy to prevent unraveling or moisture retention. The under wrap is a choice piece of genuine grey sting ray skin with a detailed skull menuki. The knife features a full height flat grind for slicing efficiency and weight reduction. The handle is fully skeletonized, and the balance point is about an inch behind where the wrap starts. The kydex sheath is setup for IWB/Drawpoint carry. This is an exceptionally nimble and efficient slicer that will make someone a very nice EDC blade! - 1095 - 60 - 61 HRC - .100" Thick - Fine satin finish - Full flat grind - Dramatic Swedge Along Spine For Increased Penetration - 11.25" OAL, Cutting edge is about 5.75" - Extremely sharp with fantastic geometry - Kydex sheath setup for IWB/Drawpoint Sold! - Thanks Guys!
