Description: Mike makes some of the sturdiest hunters around. The tang is left thick for strength in the field. The blade has a convex grind with a false edge and a mirror polished finish. The differential heat treat (shown by the heat treat line in the blade) allows Mike to make the blade edge extremely hard, while supporting it with a softer spine. The result is a resilient knife that holds its edge extremely well.
