General-purpose stainless steel. 420J2 is well suited for routine applications, is easily sharpened, and offers a great blend of hardness and wear resistance
I received this knife in a set that included the 385 and 388 Toothpick, and I am extremely pleased with both. The fit and finish of these knives are excellent, and the size and shape combine function and style for those who carry a knife daily. For those who may need a knife during their day but don't want a pocket full of bulk, these knives are perfect, and are not your typical run of the mill string cutter.
