This Link, model 1776TGRYBW, is our tanto-blade model. The 420HC stainless blade steel has higher amounts of carbon and chromium to boost hardenability and corrosion resistance. It is an excellent everyday steel: tough, corrosion resistant, easy to sharpen and takes a good edge. Our Blackwash finish gives the blade the well worn look of your favorite pair of jeans and offers additional blade protection. The handles are machined from lightweight aluminum and anodized dark grey. The sculpted lines of the handle provide for a comfortable and secure grip. It feels big and solid in the hand and offers a clean look.
