What would it take to make the ultimate field knife? We think that we have answered this question with the introduction of the X-42 Field Knife. It is constructed from an exotic, stainless steel called BG-42 that custom knife makers have raved about. BG-42 is extremely hard, durable, and takes an incredible edge. The drop point, flat ground blade is perfectly shaped and balanced for hunting, fishing, and camping chores. The full tang handle is a sandwich of Zytel glass reinforced slabs and steel while the finger grips and handle’s geometry provide a secure feel with or without gloves. The X-42 Field Knife’s black leather scabbard is designed for a friction fit with retention strap. We are able to deliver all of these features at an affordable price. Now that’s the ultimate. Rarity Note: This knife is unique as it has the “X” designation on the blade, which identifies it is a factory 2nd.
