PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) - the durability of the blade surface and the cutting edge has been increased by the PVD method involving the deposition of thin layers from the vapor phase. The applied coating has a very high hardness, which significantly increases the blade's resistance to abrasive wear.
Blade - with a Spear Point profile, made of sharp, durable 440B stainless steel. Smooth blade (Plain type) was made with a flat cut (Flat Grind). The easy-to-sharpen profile keeps the cutting edge sharp. The arched undercut finger choil and the notched thumb ramp upper jimping on the back of the blade, support efficient knife handling.
Universal saw - on the back of the blade. It consists of alternately one large and two small teeth, called „two-step”. This pattern increases the length of the cut edge by up to 24% compared to the smooth blade. Perfect for aggressive cutting of hard materials, plastics and fibrous materials such as ropes, nets, fabrics.
Handle - non-slip, textured claddings made of G-10 material, resistant to high and low temperatures, chemical agents. The shape of the handle for users who appreciate a wide range of knife holder styles. A steel head with a lanyard hole for a safety cable, can be used as a hammer/breaker.
Sheath - a combination of nylon 1000 and hard plastic. Two adjustable rubber straps and plastic buckles to take advantage of many options for attaching the knife to equipment or to the user: vest, forearm or thigh.Technical Specification:
