The Bug Out Blade is designed to be thin enough for good slicing yet strong enough for heavy prying. The knife measures 5 1/8" in overall length and the blade is just under 2 inches. These are made of 5/32" thick CPM 3V semi-stainless tool steel with my antique satin finish. Use of CPM 3V in this thickness allows for terrific cutting ability while still preserving tremendous lateral (prying) strength compared to standard cutlery steels. The result is in an easy to carry, relatively lightweight package that is ready when you are. Set up with a Mini TekLok for convenient cross draw carry. A handy personal carry piece that will not weigh you down!
