The handles offers a secure grip with the fully contoured design is comfortable in the hand. The smooth integral spine of the handle adds durability, is comfortable in the hand in multiple grips and enhances the aesthetic appeal.

About Bohler M390 Steel: Bohler M390 has become an extremely popular choice for high-end user grade knives thanks to its extreme edge retention. M390 also has a good corrosion resistance, meaning most users can avoid problems by simply wiping off their blade after each use. Another great feature of this steel is its ability to resist burr formation during sharpening.
