Blade: Full tang construction of Bohler's high performance M390 stainless steel delivers excellent edge retention and corrosion resistance that is perfect for extended daily use and carry. With just over three inches of cutting edge and a strong sabre grind the blade is razor sharp right out of the box. Outfitted with a black Diamond-Like Carbon or DLC that resists wear and corrosion the blade is discreetly non-reflective in use. A modified spear point profile is handy for slicing and piercing while jimping on the thumb rest and forward choil offer a secure grip.
Handle: Block or diamond textured G10 handle scales are perfect for a sure grip in any environment. They are secured to the tang via 416 stainless custom fasteners heat treated to 40 Rc and black oxide finished. An exposed pommel section allows for lanyard attachment.
Carries via a horizontal carry, stitched black leather sheath.
Bohler M390: Bohler M390 has become an extremely popular choice for high-end user grade knives thanks to its exceptional edge retention. M390 also has a good corrosion resistance, meaning most users can avoid problems by simply wiping off their blade after each use. Another great feature of this steel is the ability to resist burr formation during sharpening. Comparable steels are CTS-204P and Duratech 20CV.
