Blade: A classic drop point profile delivers overall utility at work or in the field with a top swedge for enhanced piercing performance.

Dual, blue anodized thumb studs provide effortless, ambidextrous operation with the blade riding smoothly on phosphor bronze washers for fast, one-handed operation.
Handle: Premium carbon fiber delivers lightweight durability, visual appeal and comfort in hand thanks to the subtle contour and micro texture. Semi-open back construction is easy to clean and maintain with a blue anodized aluminum partial back spacer with lanyard attachment loop for added color. The AXIS lock mechanism is a robust and time-tested choice with ambidextrous operation. Carbon fiber delivers and even lighter 2.02 oz package.
Carries via a reversible, tip-up, stainless steel mini deep carry clip.
CPM-S90V: A unique tool steel made using the Crucible Particle Metallurgy process, CPM S90V offers substantial improvements in edge retention over 440C and D2, and other high chromium steels, with corrosion resistance equal to or better than 440C. S90V is an excellent choice where wear and corrosion resistance are key.
