Description: This tactical knife is the work of Bob Dozier from Arkansas. The blade is D2 semi-stainless steel, which has exceptional edge retention and takes a keen edge, while having a relatively high chromium content. This chromium content makes the blade fairly resistant to rusting and oxidation (though not to the point of true stainless steel). The blade is capable of serious work, yet is also perfect for detail-oriented tasks. A swedge makes the blade light and fast. A hollow grind offers a sharper available edge while maintaining tough, duty driven geometry.
The full tang construction is evident, and the tang is sandwiched between two slabs of carbon fiber polished to a smooth, satin finish. A single finger groove is incorporated into the tang and handles, and is accented by a solitary retention rivet, flawlessly smoothed into the handle. There is a perfect, seamless transition with no metal protruding up or sinking below the carbon fiber. The edges are beveled down and feathered. The handle is completed with a lanyard hole in the tail end. The feel of this knife is solid and -- well -- classy! The knife is easily kept close at hand in the light, slim profile Kydex sheath.
