Steel Handles
Steel Handles
Stainless Steel knife handles provide strength and durability and look and feel great.
A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.

Definitely unobtrusive!
I had thought this would be the perfect neck knife for me when I ordered it. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the knife and some probably love it. Awesome blade steel that should hold an edge. It's super slim and flat which would be great for carry but in real use, I just feel there are too many hot spots while gripping it. I also wasn't too crazy about the sheath but knew that going in- green just not my style. Had I kept the knife, I would have made my own black sheath. I returned it because of the grip, not because of the sheath.

Great neck knife - highly recommended !
This knife has a unique handle design, very comfortable. The S30V blade steel is super and heat treated well. The blade is hollow ground and is extremely sharp out of the box. When I look to purchase a knife, I check for blade steel, thin blade, and no choil. This knife does have a small choil, but after several sharpenings with my Lansky, I figure the choil will be gone. The knife is lightweight and very comfortable as a neck knife. I was a little surprised at the green plastic sheath, but was pleasantly surprised at how well it works.
