Black powdercoated blade of very high quality tool steel. Razor sharp serations on 1/3 of blade, drop point tip. Very thick spine; I believe one could punch this through a steel drum without much effort. Full rat-tail tang with bonded, fully waterproof rubber grips. Solid steel finger guard and pommel. This is a serios tool, and somes with a serious sheath. The Eagle sheath has a pull-the-dot dual snap safety closure, keeping the knife secure in the most adverse conditions. It can be mounted on the hip, from the belt, or hung on the side of the leg, drop style, with the use of a couple standard straps. Very comfortable to wear, and surpriringly unobtrusive. A pouch on the outside holds your 2 cell Surefire, or your triple AAA Fenix.

Paid $225 out the door a few years ago, and its seen a few scuffs on the paint, but I assure you it's sharper now than it was when it was new. A light coat of oil coats the blade as I write this. Looking for $100 shipped, and I can have it boxed up in a couple days.

The steel used in this knife, D2, is incredible: it is considered a semi-stainless steel, and has been hardened to HRC 59-60.
