The Steel Tiger Dark Earth Karambit 49KSTDEBK has been designed to have all the best features of this iconic hook blade and seamlessly integrate them with modern materials and style. The durable Griv-Ex core handle fully encapsulates the tang, emerging to create the bolster, thumb-shelf and distinctive finger ring. This core is then injection over-molded with premium Kray-Ex™, creating a superb, non-slip grip that won't let you down even in when your hands are cold or wet. The Steel Tiger's deeply curved and needle sharp AUS 8A stainless steel blade is vacuum heat-treated and sub-zero quenched, taper ground and given a stone wash finish for maximum strength, cutting power, edge retention and performance. For safety and convenience the Steel Tiger comes with a Military style Secure-Ex sheath that you can lash to your gear or retain on your person via the removable boot/belt clip.
