Description: Aaron created this Belt Knife to be a no nonsense, high performance work horse!
The 52100 carbon steel blade was triple tempered and cryogenically treated for a durable, keen edge. Many card-carrying knife enthusiasts and knife makers feel that 52100 is the best steel available anywhere for use as a knife blade. Phosphate Parkerizing adds a non-reflective rust resistance and reduces drag while cutting.
Natural canvas Micarta scales are set on a skeletonized full tang. The scales are nicely contoured to swell at the middle and end of the handle, providing a secure, comfortable grip. They are set with epoxy and hidden fasteners.
This knife is accompanied by a pouch style leather sheath formed from 8-9oz leather by Wickett & Craig.
Nice work throughout!
