It is a very robust general purpose field knife capable of hunting and camp chores such as slicing onions, potatoes, or that freshly harvested liver. It’s designed with a very slightly forward weight bias, offering a near perfect chopping and hacking balance. The general shape of the front portion is wide by most standards. The benefit of this design will be noted when holding the knife at mid-point while skinning. This knife comes with a Hot-Formed High-Tech plastic sheath.The full-length tang has a very comfortable swell which fills the hollow of the hand. The grips are held in place by eight socket head cap screws; four per side. This method of attachment (unlike rivets) can be tightened easily by the owner.Because the grip is held by screws, versus rivets, it can easily be removed for cleaning. Anyone who has field-dressed a large mammal knows how much of a mess will ensue. But screw threads sometimes strip, so our screws go into bushings instead of the blade itself. It’s much less costly to replace an insert bushing and screw than to rethread the heat treated knife blade. In addition the grips are counter-bored or recessed on the inside to accept these bushings. This is vital as the screws are thus held under tension and will not be affected under a shearing load. During heavy chopping, the grips and tang are taking the blow, not the screws.We’ve included a lanyard hole at the pommel end for a secure tie-down or a spare piece of cord. Finally, the cutting edge as well as the whole knife, is done on computer numerically controlled machines. That means your knife will be precise to one ten thousandths of an inch (0.0001). To put that into perspective; a human hair is thirty times thicker.The result; as the edge is ground on CNC equipment we can deliver surgical edge geometry and what we call "V.H.G." (Variable Hollow Grind). This is unique to McCann knives. The tip of the blade is exceptionally strong as it generally takes the most abuse; piercing, for example, or even use as a "screwdriver" (not that we recommend it). But this is, after all, a tool. A tool to dig into a fighting position, cut saplings for a shelter, spread butter, or cut meat.We hope you find as much joy in using your new knife as we found designing and making it.
