The Cold Steel Ultimate Hunter is a design collaboration between custom knife maker Andrew Demko and President of Cold Steel, Lynn Thompson. This knife has been through exhaustive design improvements and well field tested. The continuous curved drop point blade features a broad belly for skinning duties. Hand ground blade is made from American XHP Carpenter Steel and sharpened to a razors edge. For extra safety, the blade stays securely locked up under the super strong TriAd locking mechanism, CNC machined G10 handles have been bead blasted to a smooth finish, yet still give a very secure grip with wet or bloody hands. Includes extra pocket clip to reverse sides, for truly ambidextrous carry.
About CTS-XHP: An alloy steel made by Carpenter, CTS-XHP was developed as a corrosion resistant D2 alternative. Our research shows users estimating edge retention slightly ahead of S30V, and toughness comparable to D2. This makes CTS-XHP a premium steel, which should hold a great edge and be reasonably corrosion resistant.
