PEW stands for personal edged weapon. The high quality Böhler D2 Carbon Tool Steel takes a fine edge and holds it for a long time (the downside is you need a diamond or saphire hone to resharpen it). D2 is regarded as the best carbon steel for knives, and is very corrosion resistant for a carbon steel. With a satin finish there is little reason for adding a coating (coatings tend to disguise flaws or lock in moisture that seeps through a break). The knife features a Yagyu Clan Fat Nose tip. This ancient Japanese design enhances bleed-out. Nine small tactical pins and dovetailed AISI 304 stainless steel bolsters secure the scales to the full tang. The tang has file work on top and bottom for an enhanced grip. The point of balance is at the front bolsters. The quillons extend down to create a secure grip typically reserved for our military designs. The raised thumb rest has gimping.
