I don’t know if it’s the stabilized spalted-maple handle, the way the drop-point blade becomes oh-so pointed at the end, the full tang, red liner or its almost-jutting-out handle butt, there’s a sweet spot in my heart for this hunter from T.K. Steingass of West Virginia. So, let’s call it the next in the “Editor’s Favorites From the Knives 2013 Book,” and call it a day.
The blade is CPM-S30V, so it will cut, and if you took the knife along the Appalachian Ridge, you’d never be without the daily staples. (SharpByCoop.com photo)
