Blade: Made from tough, American CPM 3V the stout drop point blade has a high hollow grind and prominent top swedge for enhanced slicing and piercing performance. A large index guard has a hook catch for martial use and pairs with jimping on the guard and thumb ramp for solid control regardless of the task. Arizona Copper is a proprietary finish that gives each blade a unique, copper like finish while also being surprisingly non-reflective for discreet use.
Handle: Attached with black stainless steel hardware to the full tang are thick, contoured marbled carbon fiber scales are milled deep grooves and traction cuts for a secure grip. The smooth finish and chamfered edges make for a comfortable grip and fast transitions in the hand. An exposed pommel end provides added utility for impact and prying and comes with a hole for lanyard attachment. Each knife is 100% hand made and includes a Certificate of Authenticity with spec sheet and serial number.
Sheath: Carries via a custom hybrid Leather/Kydex sheath with multiple carry options.
CPM-3V: is a high carbon alloy steel that extremely tough and has enough chromium to have some corrosion resistance. However, care is required to prevent corrosion. The edge can be ground thin as it is tough enough to support a fine edge. 3V delivers the highest level of toughness while maintaining good edge retention. Dawson's differential heat treatment gives a harder edge for performance and a softer spine for added for toughness and flexibility.
