Knife makers often lament that NAMING a new knife is the hardest part of making new knives! We agree, but not in this case! As the lines of this design came together, the prominent slotted back strap just screamed ?Mountain Climbing Gear? and with Greg having spent some time hanging on a rope rappelling, the On Belay was born. The false edged drop-point blade is a beast and ready for whatever you have to offer. The thumb opening slot on the blade keeps the part-count down and besides?the knife flips like it?s on ball bearings. This knife and its full-sized handle just surprised us all in 2017 and has emerged as a new favorite for MKT supporters around the world.
