The HS model is Joe's modern interpretation of the Puukko knives that were used by the Finnish military in "The Winter War" against the Soviets in 1939. It is of full tang construction with modern materials, a handle that fills the hand with enough of a guard but not so much that it is obstructive or a serious snag point- the design really can serve as a utility knife or combative one, just as the issued ones were meant to be.
-Approx 9.5" long 5.25" blade
-5/32" thick 80CRV2, differential heat treat
-Patina finish provides some corrosion resistance, reduces glare, and can be easily touched up by the user
-Flat ground with rhomboid blade shape
-Navy blue & tan Richlite scales with palm swell contour. Full copper set pins
-Full dehorn knife and sheath, fully rounded and contoured handle for comfort and blister free work experience
-Brown raptor kydex sheath with high cut and thumb ramb. This provides additional security when moving through brush, and protects more of the handle. Thumb ramp can be used to push the sheath off if it is not carried on-body.
