The Hold Out's beautiful satin polished blades are extremely broad; they are flat ground from the spine, with a shallow V cross-section culminating in a razor sharp hand-honed edge. Its American G-10 handle is a wonder of ergonomic design. Allowing a full and secure four-finger grip. It is wonderfully secure in hand and will not roll or twist with use. The grip enhancing G-10 and handle holes further aid traction in a wide range of grips, working equally well tip up, down in an ice pick grip or even held like a push dagger! Incredibly thin and flat, with an ambidextrous pocket clip designed for deep carry, even the largest of the Hold Out series is easily concealed in a pocket, clipped into a waistband or tucked into a boot. The blade and handle geometry and the positioning of the TRI-AD lock in the Hold Outs came together perfectly. Working together to create a knife whose strength versus weight ratio stunned even our own research and development team!
