About the Tommy Knife® TK-H: A mid sized fixed blade. A custom design by Tom Clarke to be carried and used in pairs they are offered in both a right and left chisel grind. The grooves on the side of the blade are not intended for looks, but instead they serve four purposes. The deviated, surface allows the collection of rust, bacteria and even venom that are often found in harsh environments. Additionally, the interrupted designed surface allows the cutting edge to function with both pushing and pulling motions increasing efficiency. The serrated edge also allows cutting in both wet and dry situations. The final purpose of the sculpted grooves is that it reduces surface friction as it passes through the chosen material by 35+ percent. Thus less energy is required to produce the same damage. For those intimidated by the design of this blade and concerned with the difficulty of sharpening, fear not; by positioning the sharpening rod along the groove these blades can achieve their optimum cutting edge with ease. The entire Tommy Knife line is designed for a forward or reverse grip application.
About the Handle: The handles were designed in a way that when you form a grip the foreign debris is pushed out allowing a secure grip of skin against the material. There are no wraps or acute angles where mud or debris could accumulate which could interfere with a secure solid grip. If foreign debris is not able to escape from a handle, often seen with wraps or a divot inlay, a smooth and slippery surface will result and error is likely.
Blade Material: This Tommy Knife custom made using CPM 3V, which meets the three major balancing factors: toughness (impact), wear resistance (edge retention) and corrosion. The toughness scale of CPM 3V is superior to all other blade material most often used. CPM 3V is an alloy so it will not corrode like standard carbon steel. The Wear Resistance is comparable to CPM S30V.
