Description: The sturdy stainless steel blade is hand fileworked along the spine, assuring a sure, comfortable grip. Both blade and tang are distal tapered for especially good balance. A cryogenic heat treat makes the blade have a particularly aggressive edge that will hold its sharpness. It was heat treated to Rc 60-61 (very hard), making a knife that will perform amazingly in the field. The desert ironwood scales have terrific, swirling grain patterns and a nice mix of light and dark tones. Mosaic pins. Red fiber spacers allow the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. The fit and finish, along with the fileworked spine, make this a knife that will feel at home in a collection or out in the field.
