Several design variants make it possible to choose your own "pocket star" offering utility in any every day task in both urban and outdoor settings. This full size version comes with a black stonewashed D2 blade and tan G10 handle scales.
Blade: A beefy, 3.5 mm thick, black stonewashed D2 blade has a curving belly along the edge with a high saber grind that offers a balance of durability and slicing performance. A harpoon swedge clip point delivers a robust point for optimized for piercing performance. It opens smoothly with an integral flipper tab riding on durable phosphor bronze washers. The dialed in detent offers smooth, snappy deployment.
Handle: Contoured, peel-ply G10 handle scales offer texture for grip and chamfered edges for comfort during use while the unique ergonomics are pleasing to the eye and the hand. The open back construction reduces weight and makes cleaning and maintenance a breeze. A scoop on the back of the handle transitions into the jimping on the blade and mirrors a scoop on the blade, both offering a secure position for the traditional Filipino grip. A single stainless liner reduces weight and forms the simple, reliable liner lock mechanism. This tactical version is finished off with black hardware and black aluminum standoffs for a pop of color.

D2 Tool Steel: D2 is a cold work tool steel that has been used as a die cutting steel since WW II. D2 has a high chromium content for a tool steel (10-13%) which gives it greater corrosion resistance than most high carbon steels making it semi-stainless. D2 offers a good combination of toughness, corrosion resistance and wear resistance for a good all around knife steel.
