CRKT First Strike, OD Green Cord Wrap, Black Blade, Plain, Zytel Sheath

The Corkum First Strike is a design of custom knifemaker Steve Corkum who has built a reputation making knives in the classic Japanese way. The blade is made out of AUS 6M stainless steel in a satin finish. The blade shape isa combination of the ancient chokuto straight sword and the classic mohorazukuri double edge tanto. The grind is what's called a convex zero edge, or appleseed cross section, resulting in an edge that is much stronger than taper or hollow grinds. The massive blade thickness continues through the tapered full tang. resulting in incredible strength from tip to butt. The striking handles are a traditional Japanese cord wrap, resin impregnated, with black ray skin underlays.The sheath is made with custom injected molded Zytel which firmly grips the knife for left or right, and have a removable belt clips plusmultiple slot and holes allowing almost infinite carry options on belts.
