Description: This is a knife you will find yourself reaching for when you leave the house. It comes with a nice 8 oz leather sheath featuring three thong holes for use in securing it and a section of braided nylon for those who wish to wear it around their necks while jogging or hiking. The three holes accommodate securing the sheath in multiple locations. It can be hung around the neck, point up, point left or right, or point down. It can be stored in the door pocket or on the visor of your vehicle and is compact enough for easy carry in a hip pocket, pocket book or computer bag.
The 154CM stainless steel blade has been hardened and triple tempered for exceptional edge holding. The corners of the blade spine have been slightly rounded to ensure they do not dig into the hand. The blade has the same shape as Jimís EMT knives and offers the same advantages: a dropped point easily slides under clothing. The recurve blade shape provides very efficient cutting. A distal taper reduces weight and improved balance.
While the stabilized red snakeskin sycamore grip is small, it is incredibly comfortable. A deep choil provides a perfect place to rest your fingers for absolute control. The handle offers several different grip options and makes the knife easy to hold Ė even with slippery hands.
Exceptional work throughout!
