This knife design was originally made as a camp knife called the Maverick Scout. The Maverick Colt is its little brother which is designed to handle lighter tasks. It's handy for cutting tie-down rope, slicing bacon or many other light camp chores. It also works very well as a small hunting knife for up to deer-sized animals, a small general purpose bushcraft knife or an every day carry knife. The Maverick Colt knife is a solid performer that will not let you down!
This knife features 12C27 stainless steel which is an excellent quality, cutlery grade stainless steel.
This knife will last for a lifetime if properly taken care of.
A heavy duty leather pouch sheath is included.
About Sandvik 12C27 Stainless Steel
Sandvik 12C27 is Sandvik's most well-rounded knife steel with excellent edge performance allowing razor sharpness, high hardness, exceptional toughness and good corrosion resistance.
Sandvik 12C27 is our main knife steel for hand-held knives, high-end ice skate blades and ice drills. Continuous improvement over a period of 45 years has evolved Sandvik 12C27 into the high performing steel grade it is today. The composition is tighter, the purity level is much higher and the fine carbide microstructure of today is far from how Sandvik 12C27 knife steel of the sixties looked.
With a hardness range of 54-61 HRC, high toughness, scary sharpness and good corrosion resistance, Sandvik 12C27 is the recommended grade for hunting knives, pocket knives, camping knives, high-end chef's knives and tactical knives.
