The 440C high-carbon stainless steel blade offers a good balance of hardness and rust resistance. It takes a fine edge and is fairly easy to re-sharpen.
The SOCP 179 is a single-piece tool with a finger ring at the end. This allows the user to maintain dexterity and handle other objects without putting down the tool.
The 179's lightweight design and specialized, low-profile sheath ensure that your tool is always there when you need it.
