100% Made in the USA, the Blackfoot blades are made from 52100 high carbon ball bearing steel. The cryogenically heat-treated blades provide a perfect balance of toughness and edge retention. Once the razor edge has been lost it can be easily sharpened with a small stone. Unlike other knives, the Blackfoot’s edge can be maintained by even novice knife owners. Additionally, the blades have been parkerized to a black finish which will help minimize rust and glare.
The Blackfoot blades have two hollows cut into the handle to decrease weight and provide a place for the epoxy to bond the steel and handle material. Screws and high strength epoxy hold the handle scales in place permanently.

Each Blackfoot comes with a Kydex sheath with a quick attach belt loop. This belt loop can be put on your belt without removing or unclasping the belt. The knife can also be carried horizontally or vertically by simply removing two screws, adjusting the look, and reapplying the screws. If you prefer, a tech lock can be purchased to give you even more attachment options
