Sweeping grind lines are not the only thing that make this dressed up camp knife something to look at and hold. The blade is made from S60V stainless steel which was given a cryogenic heat treatment for exceptional edge holding ability. The hand rubbed satin finish was brought to 600 grit.
The spine and the back of the stainless steel guard feature a selective diamond texture. A fileworked titanium spacer sits behind the guard and brings out the bright tones in the abalone inlay. Very lively in the hand with exceptional fit and finish.
