The handles are made from hard anodized aluminum and stainless steel. The pocket clip can be positioned for tip up/down, right or left hand carry.

About the Designer

When you come from a long line of knife makers, it's hard not to have it rub off on you. For Robert, this happened at an early age. Since childhood, he's always been fascinated with aircraft and lines that have a speed-of-sound look to them. Taking traditional cues from his father, Joe Pardue, and grandfather, Mel Pardue, he creates knives that have a progressive design such as the Jettison. Robert has definitely earned his design stripes in the family. But that doesn't mean anyone's backing away from the shop's machine for him anytime soon.

Big. burly knife. Heavy but I like that.
I use this knife daily as a carpenter in Rocky Mountain National Park. It cuts (because of the Veff serrations) and scrapes (because of the tanto point) very well. One of the pivot screws loosed up after a couple months but loc-tite fixed that. My re-enforced pocket corners bent the clip over time but I bent it back and it seems to have fixed it for the last year or so.Those pockets that bent it out so it was loose on other pants have four layers of material (2 12oz duck and 2 cordura) where knife clips go and have given me the same problem with other knives. At 4 inches the blade is big enough for cutting deep into construction materials or timber and the Veff serrations make short work of lumber company packaging or cordage. I haven't had to sharpen it but twice and I just used one of those pull-through v-sharpeners with the carbides and left the Veff serrations alone so far. It's a burly knife and works well for me, with a steel I'm not having to baby but don't mind getting glue or tar or sap on it all the time either. If it had the price of a S35VN blade I wouldn't use it for work because it would cost a lot more and I could always drop it down a cliff into talus or something while at work. I like this knife.
