This is a full tang combat knife with AISI 304 stainless steel bolsters. The ergonomic handle is extremely comfortable, with generous bottom quillons to promote retention. The Blade Steel is Böhler D2 Tool Steel. The swage is blunt and finishes slightly below the point for added tip strength.The handle is ergonomically shaped for easier retention. There is gimping on both sides of the thumb rest.
This knife was an experiment using light colored G10 which is susceptible to absorbing glue and stains. Unfortunately we ended up with some pure white discoloration on the scales at the borders to the front and rear bolsters. Further, you can see some black spots/lines through the scales on the edges. There is some pin-point pitting on the ricasso on one side of the blade. Thus, we are classifying this as a cosmetic second and pricing it accordingly.
