Blade: Full tang 440C stainless-steel construction makes the SOCP rugged and low maintenance. The modified drop point comes with a single partially serrated cutting edge for more permissible carry. It retains a fine piercing point thanks to the generous top swedge. Scallops near the ricasso offer traction for added security in use.
Handle: Designed to be very comfortable in hand while also offering superior control, the handle features finger grooves and an end ring. The entire tool has a textured black coating for enhanced corrosion resistance, traction and a non-reflective finish.
Sheath: Carries via a molded sheath with MOLLE compatible stainless-steel J-Hook clip.
440C Stainless Steel: The basis for many modern steels, AISI 440C offers a good balance of corrosion resistance and edge retention with relative ease of sharpening. Good all around budget stainless steel.
