AUS-8 Stainless Steel
AUS-8 Stainless Steel
A very widely used EDC steel, AUS-8 can take a very nice edge while also maintaining moderate edge holding and corrosion resistance properties.
The lockback system has been used for many decades. It can usually be found on the knife spine and it provides a strong lockup that will wear well.

Cons: None
Killer Kabar
At its regular retail price, this folder is a pretty good buy, but here at Knifecenter they've discounted it to a screaming steal of a deal on steel. A unique look, strong lock, comfortable grip, and well treated AUS-8 ground to a ultra-fine point and razor edge. Yet another solid Kabar brand folder hiding among cheap knives. Don't be fooled, this is worth three times its going rate.
