Particular attention should be paid to the treatment of each project as a unique whole. Each knife presents its individual features, but holsters also have their distinguishing features. Holsters are finished as carefully as the knives themselves, which strongly distinguishes them in the knife world. The knifemaker approaches his work with patience and full commitment.

About Scout knife in general
Scout knife is made of various types of steel (Elmax, Vanadis 4 Extra, Vanadis 23), with different blade finishes (PVD coating, DLC coating, stonewash, satin, glassblasting). The handle is usually made of G10 composite, micarta and other materials, with a variety of colors and a variety of original patterns, including those created by filling the designed cavities with resin in a color also selected by the knifemaker. For each model, the knifemaker creates an appropriate kydex holster, the colors of which (holster and accessories) correspond to the colors of the blade and the handle so that the whole is a coherent set.
About presented execution of Scout knife
Premium steel as a core of the knife construction
Presented knife is made of one section of Vanax steel and has a full-tang construction with covers attached to the handle, and the steel runs along its entire length and width. Full-tang is the most durable type of construction found in fixed blade knives.
Vanax steel is a new, unique quality among premium steel. This steel has an extremely high resistance to corrosion. It performs well in the most corrosive environments where other materials fail. In terms of anti-corrosion, it significantly exceeds the already excellent steel in this category, Elmax. In addition, Vanax is a highly wear-resistant and very durable steel.
Scout knife dimensions
Dimensions of the Scout knife predispose it to everyday and outdoor use. The whole 203 mm (7.99″) long and discreet 85 mm (3.45″) blade is perfect when preparing a meal, wood planing, or opening a cardboard package. The compact size of the knife itself, but also the whole with a holster, allows for free and unobtrusive transfer from place to place and not restrict movement, etc.
Grind and blade shape for efficient cutting
An interesting fact in the execution of the knife is the innovative hollow grind. It is visible at first glance in the form of characteristic grooves on both the correct blade and the false blade. The concavity of the cut is very subtle and, in addition to the visual effect, it is designed to support the cutting process (it reduces the effect of the material sticking to the blade and facilitates splitting of the material). The grind in combination with the shape of the drop point blade indicates that it can be used very universally.
On the back of the blade there is a jimpig, which makes it easier to press the blade of the knife to the material being cut. This element enables precise cuts, makes it easier to guide the cutting edge along the material and helps with cuts that require pressure.
The shape and design of the handle
Slender, neat oval of the handle fits very well and lies firmly in the hand. Its gentle profiling helps to prevent the hand from slipping onto the cutting edge. The rounded spine protruding from each side of the handle makes the knife comfortable and secure.
The handle linings are made of a very durable G10 composite. G10 composite is resistant to moisture, temperature changes, most solvents and acids, and has high resistance to mechanical damage. In the presented knife, the cover material has a rough pattern that prevents the handle from slipping in the hand. The handle covers have been screwed with steel screws, the finish is consistent with the design of the blade.
Kydex holster and various carrying options
The knife has a holster made of hand-formed kydex material, which is characterized by high impact and scratch resistance, characterized by low moisture absorption, resistant to various weather conditions and many chemicals.
The holster can be carried in several ways. We attach it to the belt with a webbing grommet made of durable nylon. Mounting on a belt, but also on MOLLE solutions is ensured by an optional Kydex buckle added to the set*. The holster is equipped with through holes that can be used optionally to attach the set to a backpack or a tactical harness element with a rope, string or paracord. Of course, you can use a supply of paracord with which the holster is wrapped (its color corresponds to the section next to the knife).
* The buckle designed by the knifemaker is compatible with MOLLE solutions. The cbuckle is installed by disassembling the module with the nylon grommet beforehand.
