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.
