The Tarpon knife features a 420HC (High Carbon) surgical quality stainless steel. Every edge is hand finished and polished to a razor sharpness. The blasted satin finish is achieved by sand or bead blasting the exposed metal portion of the blade. The skeletonized steel handle gives this fixed blade a unique look and feel, while keeping the weight in check. In addition to holding the knife, the Kydex sheath also has a paracord lanyard so this knife can be carried around the neck.
