"The Sole Survivor" This Custom blade is available in CPM 3V with either a satin finish or a dark etch. This model is made in 3/16-inch-thick stock, and is 11 inches overall with a 6 inch cutting edge. The handle is secured to the full steel tang with Gflex epoxy and brass pins. The lanyard tube is standard on this model. Hardened to 61-62 HRC.
This blade is a super tough workhorse of a knife. The choil comfortably fits the first finger for added dexterity when needed. The flats of this blade can be forge textured or left flat and finished to the same degree as the bevels.
All woods are stabilized with the exception of Desert Ironwood and Cocobolo, these two kinds of wood are too dense to stabilize and thus wouldn't benefit from being stabilized.
Additional handle material options are available for an additional cost due to the price of the materials. If interested in Desert Ironwood, Cocobolo, many kinds of Burl, alumilite resin, or ctek resin hybrid scales just send me a message for a quote!
Includes Your choice of a kydex sheath or an 8 oz leather belt sheath, handmade by me as well. All of my work is done in-house, from start to finish it is made by me! Razor sharp and ready for action! The blade is perfect for hiking, hunting, or camping. I ship USPS priority shipping for free!
With proper care this knife is intended to be used for a lifetime, I take great care to ensure my materials and craftsmanship are first rate.
