Brand new, directly from Mike Irie.
Blade: A perfect hunter's blade, the hand rubbed satin CPM-154 drop point has a robust tip, slicing shallow hollow grind and subtle recurve cutting edge. The drop point has a strong tip for piercing and general utility work. Coming in at under an inch wide, the blade is narrow enough for skinning tasks with good durability. Jimping at the spine delivers a solid thumb rest with enhanced traction, while a subtle guard on the ricasso offers added safety.
Handle: Simple and ergonomic, the stabilized maple wood scales and classy black linen Micarta bolsters are fully contoured for a hand filling handle that is comfortable in nearly any grip. A subtle guard, generous palm swell and bird's beak pommel help secure the knife in hand while still allowing for good maneuverability. This piece comes with stabilized maple wood handles for a handsome look.
Carries via a stitched leather belt.
