At SCAR Blades, we have created knives that are designed and used as rugged tools to help the military, law enforcement, and the avid outdoorsmen survive in the field no matter how harsh the conditions. Most of our knives have a full tang construction and are made from 3/16" thick 1095 HIGH CARBON ALLOY, which is heat treated only along the sharpened edge while leaving the spine of the blade softer to absorb the stresses of high impact use. The blades have a TufCoat powder coated finish and come with a non-slip phenolic handle to ensure the user will maintain a sure grip under all conditions.
The sheaths are KYDEX, which are tightly formed around each individual knife, ensuring a true fit. Most of the sheaths are equipped with a rotating belt loop allowing the sheath to swivel 360 degrees, moving with the user, as well as being able to lock into a secure position. With attachment holes located around the sheath, the knife can be placed anywhere the user requires, yet still be confident that it will be there waiting to serve when needed.
1. Most of our knives are made from 1095 high carbon alloy, a tool steel which is known worldwide for its ability to retain a sharp edge. Since 1095 has high carbon content, it is prone to rusting. To aid in combating this issue, we have powder coated each knife and advise each user to lightly coat the exposed steel (sharpened edges, saw teeth) with an odorless oil (like gun oil) after each use, especially in humid climates.
2. KYDEX, which is a very strong, durable, lightweight, chemical resistant plastic, is used to make our sheaths. Each sheath is individually molded for each knife by hand, and no two knives will fit one sheath perfectly. Once each knife has a dedicated sheath it is fitted to where the knife locks securely in place and will not come out unless physically being pulled by hand. Every sheath has multiple tie down holes located around the edges to allow the user to fasten the knife to any position that is needed. Each sheath also has a drain hole to allow any moisture in the sheath to easily drain out to help keep the blade from rusting while holstered. We at SCAR BLADES do ask that user of our knives do not place the KYDEX sheaths on a car dashboard in the hot sun during the summer months or in any other extremely hot areas. Doing so will allow the KYDEX to heat up and become slightly pliable, causing it to lose its original form and if this is the case, the knife will no longer fit securely.
3.Our heavy duty field knives are mostly used for chopping rather than slicing, and do not require a razor shaving edge to get the job done. When sharpening your knife or knives, we recommend obtaining a 30 degree angle to get the best and longest working edge. Should the owner of the knife or knives require a new factory edge in the future, we are happy to take the time to sharpen them at no charge. See warranty/shipping instructions.
