Description: This one-off tactical Kwaiken was made by Eugene, OR knifemaker Ben Tendick. Ben is a full time knifemaker and started making knives in 2010.
The upswept blade is formed from CPM 3V. This powdered metallurgical carbon steel provides maximum resistance to breakage and chipping in a high wear-resistant steel. This traditional upswept Japanese tanto grind is an efficient cutter.
The epoxy hardened wrapping (tsuka ito) features blue and natural wrap and an antique copper menuki on the left side.
This tactical utility knife is accompanied by a Tek-lok ready custom Kydex sheath.
