Description
CIKC4017: KC4017 Vannak III
Citadel
 
Hunter, Utility, Outdoor, Fixed EDC - whichever you call it the Vannak III is up to the task.

This is one of those 'just right' knife designs, no more and no less. Just enough blade length to get the job done and stay sharp doing it. A handle at just the right length with a small lower guard big enough to keep your hand in place but small enough not to get in the way. The Palisander wood scales are contoured to fit the hand just so for long-term use with no fatigue. It's a working knife that just happens to look and feel like a high-end custom.

The blade is hand forged from high carbon DNH7 and differentially hardened showing a distinct temper line or hamon. The forge scale on the flats is left in place while the primary bevel is highly polished. The full convex edge is shaving sharp and likes to stay that way.

A full grain leather belt sheath is included. As DNH7 is a high-carbon steel the knife should not be stored in the leather sheath for a long period of time; a nylon zipper storage pouch with embroidered Citadel logo is included for long-term storage instead.

Compact everything here
I added 2 grommets to belt strap,this sheath fits inside my jeans belt loop and lashes to the post for horizontal cross draw.I wear it with my "Sunday go meetings" attire and cant see it or even know it is there.This knife is the perfect line of compact ,paired with getting the job done.Creme bone toned liner,handle perfect,Blade epic...This knife others would charge even more for.Stuck in belt loop,belt or not,if it was longer would teeter or need tied down to next loop beyond..Not this,dont wiggle,lashes tight to post with leather cord like a shoe lace.Always right there for fastest draw,even when setting in car.(Wont cut or catch on seats by wearing in front belly belt line,(That loop, left or right side)..I am lefty so the first right side loop in front,sheath stuffed inside loop ,lashing from inside to post.Best toting method and with this knife rig,best ever.

Citadel quality
I bought this knife to replace my old one which served me for many years in the woods.I use it in my hunting trips to make fire, carving wood, eat, shelter making and processing game. Citadel vannak III wood works great! Is a beautiful sturdy working knife. Very easy to sharpen to a razor edge that lasts for lot of work.I'm really satisfied!
