The Field Knife was a collaboration between Nathan Carothers and Lorien Arnold. It is a well made, no frills, high performance utility knife. The steel is CPM 3V at HRC 61-62 with a fully optimized heat treat with very good edge retention, edge stability and durability.
This steel with this heat treat will support a fine edge, so this was taken down to .015″ before sharpening and it was sharpened 18 degrees per side. This is relatively acute and it cuts well, but is very durable.
The handle is ergonomically designed for a standard forward, reverse, saber and pinch grips for an average to relatively large hand. The tang is internally skeletonized for balance and weight reduction. The scales are 3D sculpted CNC machined.
