The Explorer model is a great all around belt knife which balances a blade large enough for most every job while being small enough to be carried daily. It works well for those who may want a larger blade than our Hunter or prefer a contoured grip that offers a more secure grip. Great knife for the hiker, hunter, farmer, or any one else that needs a medium sized, durable fixed blade knife.
This blade is 1095 High Carbon steel with a beautiful hamon that shows the differential heat treatment of the hard edge and softer spine. The blade length is 3.75" with an overall length of 8.5". Blade thickness is thinner 3/32" steel which reduces weight and adds greater slicing ability.
The scales are stunning desert ironwood. The wood has beautiful natural hues of yellow and purple mixed into the brown. It is called ironwood because it is super hard and very durable. They are contoured all around for a super comfortable grip for all day use.
The knife comes with a hand sewn and stitched leather belt sheath designed to be worn on the right hip. If you need a left handed model or prefer a kydex sheath then please contact me directly.
*this knife is not stainless and may rust if not properly taken care of.
