Brand new, direct from Sakman Knives, SA.
Blade: Hand rubbed satin N690 stainless steel delivers balanced performance in the modified Sheepsfoot blade with a shallow hollow grind and subtly up swept belly at the tip for excellent versatility in use. Opened via a classic nail nick, the blade has great walk and talk with a solid snap at half and full stop positions. With a stylish look, this is an excellent blade for users and collectors alike.
Handle: Stainless liners support contoured canvas Micarta covers for a solid and comfortable grip and plenty of visual appeal. The covers are attached with stainless pins and the liners are engine turned or jeweled for a truly custom feel. A solid stainless steel back spring protects the blade when closed and delivers snappy slip joint action for safe use. Includes a felt slip for storage and carry, nylon drawstring bag and signed Certificate of Authenticity.
Bohler N690: N690 is a high quality stainless steel, considered an upgrade to 440C. It has higher hardness and wear resistance for better edge retention while sacrificing some toughness. Corrosion resistance is high, at or better than VG-10. Easy to sharpen, this is a well-balanced steel for daily carry and use.
