Cold Steel 39LSF Leatherneck SF

The Leatherneck-SF features a hand-honed razor sharp clip point blade. It’s flat ground from top to bottom, creating a shallow “V” shaped cross-section that has proven ideal for cutting slicing, and shearing through a wide variety of materials. To keep the fingers from sliding forward on to its keen edge, the Leatherneck-SF comes with a substantial guard. Made of thick steel with double quillons that are turned slightly forward, it provides excellent protection for the hand, especially in close combat, while offering minimal interference in the use of the knife when performing utility tasks. The handle is made of deeply checkered Kraton, offering unsurpassed gripping power through its palm-hugging oval cross-section and unique finger trough. It’s capped with a thick, machined steel butt cap (not cheap casting like others) so it can also deliver frightful blows with the butt or double in an emergency as a hammer. It comes with a sturdy Secure-Ex sheath complete with fully detachable and ambidextrous belt loop. (; 800-255-4716)
