Description: This is the 1st prototype of Todd Begg's 8" Pessimist. It is marked PROTOTYPE A on the right side of the blade. This knife is quite the treat to be sure.
It has a thick, sniper gray coated steel wharncliffe blade with a dagger ground swedge. It also has a .27" blade stock, and just over 1-1/2" blade depth, ensuring a sturdy full tang construction. It is made from N690 stainless steel, a super-steel created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds on to it. Increased toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping.
The handle is fitted with 3D machined and contoured black G10 scales that feature raised traction patches. The full-tang handle is rounded and extends past the scales to aid in the handling of this wicked fixed blade.
Includes a molded sheath with Tek Lok to keep this one close to your hip.
