My favorite knife design meets my new favorite handle material. For knives intended for use, the alternating layers of G10 and vulcanized rubber found in this handle material can’t be beat. It’s comfortable in the hand, grippy when wet or bloody, and looks great too. Blue is my favorite color, and you’re never going to lose this knife when you set it down in the grass. It has a full-height flat grind, with very little secondary bevel for a wicked edge that’s easy to maintain. O1 steel is a wonderful knife steel, but it is NOT stainless.
