Blade: The Wharncliffe blade is finished in a hand rubbed satin finish with a classic nail nick for opening and marked "T.A. Davison USA" on the front tang. CTS-XHP sharpens and holds an edge and offers easy maintenance and excellent performance with the shallow, hollow grind provided. A swedge at the point offers a fine, finishing touch to this beautiful custom piece.
Handle: Dark jig bone covers are fit to polished stainless steel bolsters, all precision fit to the stainless steel liners. Smooth polished liners and file work on the inside of the back spring offer a truly custom feel. Stainless pins are used to secure the covers and the display side has a stainless arrowhead shield for a timeless feel. The back spring is smooth and solid with half-stop action and sits flush in all three positions.
Pouch: Includes a fleece lined nylon zipper pouch for carry and storage.
CTS-XHP: An ultra-high-carbon 'stainless' steel that was developed to combine the corrosion resistance of 440C and wear resistance of D2. With good wear resistance and the ability to attain a high hardness, CTS XHP has edge retention somewhere between S30V and ZDP 189. An excellent choice for any knife that is going to see a lot of use.
