DWKDSTSTRIKE5SST: Desert Strike 5 Fixed Blade, Sandstone Cerakote
The Desert Strike's dramatic clip point blade design couples an ideal piercer with a healthy recurve for superior slicing. The offset guards offer excellent hand protection and maneuverability with minimal bulk, while the thumb and finger rests filed behind each help create a secure hold. The handle is shaped to rest naturally in your hand, with a deep finger choil for additional control and precision.
The Desert Strike is made from 80CrV2 virgin steel, a premium, German-made high carbon alloy noted for its exceptional toughness and excellent edge-holding capability. The bowie-style design combines tactical prowess with utility, camping, hunting, and survival functionality into an easily carried package.
