SAFETY IS TOP PRIORITY
The knife is constructed on the principle of through-mounting, i.e. the thick shaft goes through the handle and comes out at the heel of the handle as a glass bead (it is also a flat surface that can be used for hammering in, for example, a nail). The handle is made of tough Kraton. This is a special type of rubber plastic that is abrasion, temperature and moisture resistant. The handle does not become soaked, remains grippy even when wet, is easy to clean, and does not turn brown in freezing temperatures.
Horizontal textured stripes, as on the HP -43 Cherry, and the shaft shape provide even more grip.
