Our utility inspired ring knife is simply crying out to be taken on an adventure. It's Kiridashis inspired (but with a double bevel) simpleness screems KISS keep it simple stupid with a 101 uses thrown in to the mix.  
This is a great option for a no fuss, no bullshit knife that's easily attached to straps, belts and webbing. The knife is comfy with either the pinky finger engaged in the ring or not, there's enough room on the scales to use this knife without the ring comfortably. 
On the blade face we've laser tattooed our skull and crossed arrows logo, something you'll be seeing more of soon on our tactical/adventure lines of knives. On the underside of the spine we've Lasered the Norse quote "No lamb for the lazy wolf" a quote we are in love with at the moment from the now ancient Norse text "The Havamal". 
We've used 3.5mm thick 80CRV2 carbon tool steel for its toughness and tempered it down to around 57hrc to help even more in the ruggedness department and importantly to make it easier to sharpen in the field. We've given this one a little sabre grind with a razor sharp secondary bevel and murdered out the steel with help of a caswell black treatment to reduce glare and add a little tactical spice. 
The scales we've used are G10 with an ultra grippy "peel ply" texture to make them more secure in all conditions, they are held on mechanically with stainless flared tubes.  
The sheath it Topographic patter Kydex making for a utilitarian set up, a standard belt clip similar to a Tek-Lok is fitted for belt or strap attachment. If you want two straps to wear this tool either cross draw or scout carry just let us know and we will add them to the package for free.

All of our knives are made by hand and as such none are perfect, if you look hard enough and study the knife intently, you may find the odd light scratch or blemish picked up in the making process. We call this character and it's what makes your knife yours, it will in fact pick up much worse over a short period of time through normal use and begin to tell its own story.
