A very small knife that is useful to carry when fishing and when hunting. The people of the cold north have been using these for ages and finding a company that makes them in The USA with D2 Steel and puts a proper Heat Treatment just made it amazing. As a Knifemaker, I understand the importance of information about a product,
As I mentioned, It is D2 Steel, a High Carbon Steel used in industrial settings. It is often said that it is a Semi-Stainless Steel, and that is because of it's high content of Chromium. No steel is Stainless or Rust Free and even Stainless can develop surface rust. This knife is hard to stain though, and it will hold up for awhile without being oiled like 1095 would. D2 is very very resistant, therefore, a bit harder to sharpen, but once sharpened, it holds an edge for a lifetime.
It is Full tang, and the edges are 90 degrees so you could strike a Ferro Rod for a Fire. It is also Beveled on one side, which means the other side is completely Flat. Many people were not aware of this.
It is a very good material that is water resistant and is pinned with two brass rods and has a lanyard hole, though the snap of the leather sheath gets in the way of one.
Made out of Leather and in the US, Very high quality and properly made with a welt and all. It has a snap closing system that serves it's purpose and a belt loop to attach to a belt.
Overall this is a very good knife and it is very useful in the right hands.
I'd Recommend This to Anyone up to Switch Their Knife Game a Bit.
