Blade: Made from premium AEB-L stainless steel the Bowie-like clip point blade has a rugged stonewashed finish and a fine, hollow ground edge. The slip joint operation has a solid half stop with good walk and talk. Three milled holes in the blade are substituted for a nail nick for opening, adding traction while keeping a clean look.
The back springs are quite strong and require a strong grip to open..
Handle: Offering a blend of modern and traditional design the handle is comprised of a steel back spring, blasted titanium liners and matte finished Green Linen Micarta handle scales all held together with titanium Torx hardware. The handles have milled grooves further increasing traction in the hand. The slip joint operation has a solid half stop operation for safety. The large, classic handle profile is comfortable during periods of extended use while maintaining a slim, easy to carry profile.
About AEB-L: AEB-L (Sandvik 13c26) is similar to a stainless 52100 and is often utilized as a steel for razor blades. AEB-L forms very small, hard evenly distributed carbides which delivers excellent toughness, edge retention, ease of sharpening and a fine razor-like edge as well as exceptional corrosion resistance. This is a popular choice among custom makers.
