The alloy has a high level of carbon and chromium in its composition, is resistant to corrosion, as well as all sorts of loads and mechanical stress.

It has impact resistance, strength, moisture resistance. It can be easily dyed and the required processing. The design of 10 centimeters length handle is provided with a hole for a lanyard and a fully removable belt clip.
The blade could be removed either by a small hole for the thumb at the base or by flipper with anti-slip cuts. The blade is fixed due to the presence of steel lock of a Liner-Lock type.

Smaller, aggressive looking but comfortable
I bought this because the web reviews seemed to indicate its a really good option. Not a fan of these aggressive blade styles and smaller handle, so its disappears a bit in my palm, but the finger choil makes it an excellent biltong knife or short close up work knife. So you can focus on the blade work but the pressure is on the forefingers and thumb. Will make the grip more tiring if used for long periods. But if you have smaller hands its perfect. The flip action is much better than the FH91 and on par with the FH41. I got the grey/blue finish which i prefer.
