Choose the Tanto for its strong tip and penetrating blade angles or the Recurve to tackle a wide variety of cutting tasks. Both are built with AUS8 steel blades and are partially serrated for ripping through the most challenging of materials. Ambidextrous thumb studs and a sturdy liner lock permit fast, easy, and confident single-handed deployment, while the 4-position pocket clip allows you to carry your favorite knife how and where you choose. Rugged G-I0 scales are textured and skeletonized for positive grip and total control, wet or dry, with or without gloves on. Prices start at $69.99.
