Gekai Naked Steel, D2 is a strong knife with a fixed blade made of D2 steel. Monolithic construction combined with solid thickness gives adequate "power reserve" for the most demanding applications. Comes with a functional kydex sheath. Designed by French knifemaker Charles de Buyer of Opus Knives & Design, known for his penchant for drawing out the essence of the knife in its purest form.
D2 - a high-carbon, high-chromium high-speed tool steel heat-treated to 59-60 HRC. With a high chromium content of 13.0% (Cr), it offers greater corrosion resistance than most high-carbon steels. Combines strength, excellent edge holding and easy sharpening. Features high wear resistance due to high carbide content in the microstructure.
Blade - solid Straight Back blade with a thickness of 4.8 mm. Plain blade, high, flat grind (Flat Grind) gives excellent cutting edge geometry and extreme cutting performance. The blade has been finished with an elegant Satin finish. On the back of the blade notched upper jumping thumb rest.
Handle - an extension of the blade steel. Ascetic simplicity of design gently varied by an oblong hole in front and two holes on the back of the handle. In addition to aesthetic value, they also serve to attach a paracord cord to the handle and reduce the weight of the knife. The hole at the back of the handle can be used as a lanyard hole, which is a hole for a safety or decorative cord. The fore finger groove improves grip security.
Sheath - a perfectly fitted sheath made of Kydex can be worn attached to the belt or hung around the neck.
