Bead blast blade, Combined Razor-Sharp & Triple-Point Serrated Cutting Edge

FROM CRKT WEBSITE :

Jim Hammond's Cruiser series of customs seemed like an ideal starting point in a development of a high quality affordable lock back work folder. As the first custom knife maker and Knife makers' Guild member to work with Columbia River Knife & Tool (CRKT), he understood the translation necessary to arrive at their successful production Cascade Lock back.

The blade is a Hammond modified clip point shape, hollow ground from 420J2 stainless steel with a bead blast finish, and available with a Combination Razor-Sharp and Triple-Point Serrated edge.

For maximum comfort, it incorporates Twin-Fused handle technology using a rigid, injection molded high-impact polycarbonate frame with a soft, comfortable diamond patterned injection molded Kraton® grip for a firm, safe hold. This build, combined with the rounded handle cross section, deep finger choil with guard, pronounced butt pommel and blade thumb ramp with friction grooves, results in one of the most secure and comfortable grips in any folder, at any price.
