Brand new, direct from Chuck Gedraitis Knives, USA.

Blade: Riding smooth on nylon washers the sweeping, "Yakuza" Tanto blade deploys with ease. Equipped with a two-tone satin finish, the CTS-XHP blade is compound ground for a stylish and aggressive look, a shallow hollow grind at the piercing tip with a slicing deep hollow on the primary edge and a long spine swedge. The tang is marked by the maker.

Handle: Orange peel textured, full titanium slabs are anodized a handsome bronze and milled with channels and divots for solid traction in use. The slabs are joined by black and gray G10 spacers and secured in open and closed positions by a zinc latch with titanium pin. Satin hardware rounds out the construction. Includes padded Ace Case zippered pouch for storage.

CTS-XHP: An ultra-high-carbon steel that was developed to combine the corrosion resistance of 440C and hardness of D2. It offers good hardness with toughness-edge retention balance, both being better than S35VN with easier sharpening. Corrosion resistance is closer to 3V than 440C, making it more of a semi-stainless.
