This knife has a handle made from
stabilized birch which produces a completely waterproof finish it is also
washable and impact resistant. The wood is vaccum injected with a mixture of
hardened methacrylate esters, which increases its density and makes the whole
handle resistant to moisture, cracks and hard impact. For this particular model,
the mixture was added by blue pigment for a more stylish look.
This strong full-tang knife is built for versatile use for hunting, fishing and general use in the forest. It is a very sturdy knife you can skin with, fillet a fish with as well as carving wood. The blade is about 10cm long and made of about 3.5 mm thick Sandvik 14C28N, a Swedish stainless steel developed for knives (58-59 HRC).
The knife is sharpened with a Full Flat grind and has a satin finish. This steel combined with the grinding makes these knives very easy to cut with, effective for a variety of tasks and maintain an edge well, but is still very easy to sharpen. This type of grind is not optimal for batoning and prying but rather optimised for efficient cutting due to the low angle and thinness behind the edge. To increase the strength the secondary bevel needs to be sharpened back and angle increased a little.
The knife comes with a very sturdy black sheath made of 3mm thick vegetable tanned leather. The sheath has an extra wide belt loop, a bottom opening for fluid and a hole for a leg attachment.
