G. E. Chen Duty semi-custom full tang fixed blade knife with CPM-3V blade and micarta handle. The 3V version is slightly larger than the first production versions that were in S35VN. Composed of a full tang of CPM-3V, the flat ground blade has been vacuum heat treated, oil quenched and tempered to provide and help maintain a razor sharp edge. Two-toned red and black micarta handles have been contoured for comfort before being attached to the tang with cap screws. The tang has been skeletonized to remove weight and a L "Lightened" has been stamped on the blade to note this. The removed section has been turned into a dogtag with laser etched specifications and production date. Each of the Chen Duty knives have been serialized out of 500 and etched into the back of the spine. Includes a heavy duty Tek-Lok compatible Kydex sheath with attached belt carry loop. Brand new direct from G. E. Chen.
