The TAK-1 blade was designed by Jeff Randall, and is a comfortable and versatile blade. The handle length is generous, and is especially accommodating to those with larger hands. It is a solid knife both in design and function. The TAK-1 is slightly lighter than the RAT-5, and slightly better suited for wilderness tasks. The 1095 steel is durable, and hits the sweet spot for edge retention and easy of sharpening.
