The Cayenne custom fixed knife from maker Tom Krein is a spicy little every day carry fixed blade.

Brand new, direct from Krein Knives.
Blade: The compact clip point blade of the Cayenne is made from shallow hollow ground XHP that provides a high level of corrosion resistance and D2 like edge retention for extended cutting performance. A top swedge on the clip point delivers a fine tip for piercing and detail work. The grind is satin finished and Krein-sharp. The full tang construction is beautifully satin finished with the Krein Knives Logo and XHP marked on the blade. A subtle index guard and double row jimping on the spine pair with the excellent handle design for solid traction in the hand.
Handle: Green Canvas Micarta handle scales with contrasting red liners are smooth and contoured for comfort on the ergonomically designed handle. The three-finger handle facilitates security and fine control during use while maintaining a very carry friendly package. The scales are attached via a mosaic pin and hollow lanyard tube.
Sheath: ships in a custom-fit black Kydex sheath with ball chain for neck carry.
CTS-XHP: An ultra-high-carbon stainless steel that combines the exceptional corrosion resistance of 440C and wear resistance similar to D2. Thanks to the unique composition and its 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.
