You have never seen anything that compares to United Cutlery's new M48 Cyclone Fixed Blade Knife! The 8" cast 2Cr13 gold stainless steel blade has been crafted into a spiraling masterpiece of design. The three spiraling cutting edges come down to an incredibly sharp piercing point. As with all M48 knives, the glass-fiber-reinforced nylon handle gives you a strong and secure grip. The Cyclone also features a solid stainless steel hand guard and skull crusher pommel. The blade slides into a specially Vortec belt sheath that fits like a glove. The fixed blade is 13 1/2" in overall length.
