It is a stout knife, capable of handling all your daily needs. Whether it's food prep or cutting kindling, this knife has got you covered. The handle is two (2) stabilized maple scales, secured with Torx screws. This knife is a real workhorse. It comes with a wet molded leather belt sheath, custom fitted for the knife. The knife will be shipped exactly as it was shipped to the one original owner, with the tip protector, cleaning cloth, padded zippered case, and Karl's business card.
