Content from Knife Center: "This custom DWYD fixed blade has a very compact handle so it's easily concealed yet it provides a solid two-finger grip. The shape of the spine allows you to really bear down on this knife hard so you can put some serious force behind each cut. The advantage of a chisel edge is that the thin cutting edge is good for tactical scenarios and the tip is better at penetrating tough material. Both these were highly considered when designing this backup knife and its tanto tip will slice like an X-ACTO knife. The large finger guard makes for much safer handling on this two-finger design and prevents you from sliding forward onto the blade when stabbing. Duane was really excited about this knife as it's a design that will fit into anyone's lifestyle, no matter if that's tactical or not."
About the Tommy Knife TK-D: A small sized fixed blade. Designed to be carried and used in pairs they are offered in both a right and left chisel grind. The entire Tommy Knife line is designed for a forward or reverse grip application.
Should we call this handle caveman? About the Handle: The Caveman grip 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 TK-D is custom made using CPM-S30V Stainless Steel, which meets the three major balancing factors: toughness (impact), wear resistance (edge retention) and corrosion.
