Description: Erik Fritz's Small Practical Utility packs a large blow and will be an exceptional asset in a collection or out in the field.
The 52100 carbon steel blade was triple quenched and triple tempered for grain refinement and optimal edge holding. Many makers and collectors feel that 52100 is among the best steels available for knifemaking. When combined with a triple temper and triple quench, as shown in the works of Mastersmith Bill Burke, the results are exceptional. A meticulous satin finish is a nice touch. The G10 handle has been nicely rounded for a sure, comfortable grip. Phil Rosine created a sturdy Kydex neck sheath to keep this knife at the ready when not on display. Another excellent knife from Fritz with his signature classic look and feel!
