Sheepdog Knives Custom Kwaipoon Fixed 3.8" 1095 Hamon Blade, Textured Black G10 Handles, Kydex Sheath
SHPKWPNTBG10: Custom 1095 Hamon Kwaipoon Fixed Blade, Textured Black G10
The Kwaipoon is an excellent do-it-all fixed blade design from Chris Conaway at Sheepdog Knives. It's named such as the shape is like a cross between a typical Kwaiken and a harpoon style blade. This 3.8" blade is made from 1095 high carbon steel with a differentially heat treated Hamon finish. The ergonomic, thin handle scales are made from highly textured black G10 and attached with Torx screws. The tapered butt end features a small lanyard hole and the non-jimped thumb ramp makes for a very comfortable grip when using this compact fixed blade. The sheath is made from Kydex with lashing holes for belt carry. Chris has lined the sheath with suede to prevent scratching this beautiful blade as you sheath/unsheath the knife - showing true thought on this awesome design. It has an extremely sharp edge for a blade so thick and was handmade in the USA.

An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for its extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel (it will rust) and most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.
Waterproof, scratch resistant, and low friction. It will hold its shape and makes a great alternative to leather.
Custom knives are hand made in shops around the world. These will typically be extremely high quality and one of a kind pieces meticulously built by the craftsman.
This product is USA born and raised.
Formed in a sheet under high pressure by combining fiberglass and an epoxy resin binder. These handles are lightweight and shaped to ensure a solid grip.
