Blade: The drop point blade opens smoothly on Mcusta’s special oiled washer system via dual stepped thumb studs. A nearly full height flat grind on the drop point blade offers powerful slicing performance balanced with good durability and a robust tip for piercing and utility. Striking and stylish, the crowned spine and fine satin finish of the Bamboo make it an excellent choice for dress carry.
Handle: Robust steel liners support handsome Indian Rosewood handle scales that are flush fit to brushed satin Damascus steel bolsters both milled in a Bamboo patter for a striking and stylish look. Steel bolsters and liners deliver a hefty yet well-balanced feel. Contoured for comfort the handle offers a secure grip thanks to a generous index finger groove along with the bamboo texture. The stainless liner lock mechanism is strong, intuitive and reliable for use. A hole at the pommel end allows for lanyard attachment.
Carries via a snap closure nylon belt pouch or end mounted, stainless steel deep carry pocket clip.
Japanese VG10: VG-10 is a high-carbon stainless steel that takes a very good edge and holds it well. Popular with Japanese kitchen knife makers it is often hardened to 60-61 HRC. A popular choice for small pocket knives thanks to good edge holding and stain resistance VG10 works well with a high polished, acute edge for optimal slicing performance.
