This steel is ideal for excellent edge retention, great corrosion resistance and for heavy cutting applications. For best performance, we harden to a standard Rc 59-61.
Very strong for heavy duty use. Holds up to piercing, scraping and prying with tough materials. Many tactical knives utilize this blade shape.
Let me start with why it has 4 stars and not 5. From factory it's four stars that's because I like jimping. Since this is such a small blade I ended up placing jimping just after the guard for my thumb. Im sure not everyone would want or need this. For big hands your thumb needs to rest somewhere and for me behind the guard is uncomfortable. Knife came sharp and the accessories are great . I like that you can adjust the retention and in case you loose or break a rubber washer it comes with extras. I carry horizontally on my belt and it works great. If your looking for a good belt carry or boot knife this is for sure the one to get.
I simply love this little knife. When it is tucked in my boot I find it very comfortable and hardly notice it is there. I find myself tapping the knife with my other foot just to make certain that it is still secure. Yet another great product from a fantastic company. Keep up the great work!
This is a wonderful knife. The design of the knife and the sheath compliment each other well. The blade is razor sharp and robust. I have large hands and the handle portion sits comfortably for the purpose in which I carry it for, which is self -defense. Those with large hands probably aren't going to use this for everyday cutting tasks, although the knife is certainly capable.
