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 handle is extra large to increase comfort and reduce fatigue.  The knife features a Yagyu Clan Fat Nose tip.  This ancient Japanese design enhances bleed-out.  Eight small tactical pins and dovetailed AISI 304 stainless steel bolsters secure the scales to the full tang.  The tang is slightly tapered.  The quillons extend down to create a secure grip typically reserved for our military designs.  The raised thumb rest has gimping.
