Blade: Executed with a robust saber grind, this 5160 Spear Point blade is tough enough for heavy field work while having a nearly full length swedge that makes this Spear Point a powerful, piercing defensive tool. Durable and non-reflective, poly-ceramic Cerakote enhances corrosion resistance and allows for discreet use. The blade takes a razor sharp edge with ease and offers excellent utility in the field.
Handle: Attached to the full tang of the blade with coated stainless steel hardware, the composite handle scales are contoured for comfort with milled texture for a secure grip in the most adverse conditions. A pronounced thumb ramp and forward finger choil delivers optimal control and help prevent sliding onto the blade during heavy use. The exposed pommel of the blade can be used for striking or prying and is milled with a hole for lanyard attachment.
Carries via the included injection molded sheath with MOLLE compatible nylon.
5160 Carbon Spring Steel: 5160 Alloy Steel, also sold as AISI 5160, is a high carbon and chromium spring steel. It offers excellent toughness and high ductility. 5160 is commonly used in the automotive industry in heavy spring applications, especially for leaf springs. Chromium is added to increase hardening response and performs well in a wide range of Rockwell hardness. It can be hardened up near the 60s for knives needing more edge holding.
