Description: We designed this knife for a specialized military/law enforcement task, but if that's not your job it is fine for other uses. The Yagyu Fat Nose spine grind leaves a triangle of steel to support the tip but also facilitates fast extraction. The swage is blunt to permit batoning and avoid civilian environment dagger-law issues.
The blade is made of custom knife quality Böhler Uddeholm D-2 Tool Steel that has been professionally heat treated. D-2 Tool Steel is regarded by many experts as the best carbon steel for knives. It is used in dies that cut other steels and very resistant to corrosion for a carbon steel. Although it is a major pain to sharpen, D-2 takes a fine edge and holds it for a long time.
The Micarta handle scales were textured, and then brushed to reduce reflectivity. The steel, including the exposed tang, has been covered with matt black powder coat. We noticed a tiny scratch (still black coated) on the right side of the blade and therefore classified the knife as a second and reduced its price. Since powder coat wears heavily, if you plan on using the knife this very minor cosmetic flaw will rapidly become irrelevant.
The knife shown are what you will get so if you have any questions ask them before ordering.
