Earning its name after the tough and resilient mountain dweller, this knife is a great carry EDC or defensive tool.
It was hand forged from a bar of 80CrV2 to shape and still has a few large hammer marks visible in the blade. The tang was tapered and point distal tapered for light weight and great balance. Black oxide coating gives it a subdued look and a small amount of corrosion resistance.
Scales are durable black and coyote tan g10. They are scalloped for a secure, comfortable grip. They are attached with stainless Corby bolts and 2 ton epoxy for a lifetime fit.
The knife rides in a black kydex sheath and includes leather strapping for comfortable horizontal belt carry.

*This blade is high carbon, not stainless, and may discolor or even rust of not properly cared for. See our FAQ for more info.
**The black oxide coating provides corrosion resistance but shows wear marks and scuffs easily. The sheath is usually the first source of scuffing. These marks are purely cosmetic.
