Kriegar's "Helden Rand" Kat Knife pays homage to a classic German military lockback folder - a favorite of troops hunkered in the harrowing trenches of World War I, on the killing fields of WWII and beyond. Slim, easy to carry and exceptionally rugged, the knife proved so valuable, it was even adopted by opposing forces and continues to be a military workhorse into the present day. Try Kriegar's modern reproduction, and it's easy to see why! Its blade is hard, resilient carbon steel, honed to a razor sharp edge. The drop point profile is exceptionally versatile, and the sturdy lockback offers added safety and the rock-solid stability of a fixed blade - vital for especially vigorous cutting jobs. More than a mere "historical replica," the Helden Rand - which translates to "hero's edge" in German - boasts the same level of dependability, strength and utility as the original. It's the ultimate discreet, easy-to-carry folder for all your cutting needs!
