From Knife Center: "This custom DY-" 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."

Blade Material: This Tommy Knife TK-E is custom made using CPM-S30V Stainless Steel, which meets the three major balancing factors: toughness (impact), wear resistance (edge retention) and corrosion.
