This #38 SPECIAL features one 1095 steel clip point blade. This blade offers good versatility whether using it for peeling an apple, cutting rope or whittling a stick. The blade has a cutting edge of 2.625" and has a nail nick for opening. The blade finish is polished with "NORTHFIELD UN-X-LD" logo etched on it. There is no half stop.
The Handle Construction:
The handle length allows for a solid four finger hold for most people. The handle scales are Sambar Stag and the attaching pins and liners are brass. The "pinched" and grooved bolsters and "pinched" and grooved end caps are nickel silver and give the knife a classy look. The handle scale edges are rounded and flush with the outside perimeter making the knife pleasant to hold. The fit and finish are excellent and the blade action is crisp when opening and closing.
Since the handle scales are made from Sambar Stag, the handle thickness and knife weight will vary from knife to knife.
