This knife is durable and easy to use. It features a Clip blade, a hip-clip to keep it close, and can be opened with one hand by the thumb stud. The Clip blade is a multi-purpose blade, commonly preferred for detail work. The Chrome Vanadium blade is great for holding it's edge and being easily sharpened but needs a little extra care to prevent corrosion and discoloration. Case reccomends cleaning it then adding a thin layer of oil to finish the blade and keep it like new. These built-to-last knives are proudly made in Bradford, PA, USA.
