The 580 features an automatic safety "non-puncture" sheepsfoot blade. It is made for use in emergency survival conditions, rescue applications and a variety of cutting tasks. The blade is opened by a push-button release and held in place with a slide lock. The steel is black oxide finished 440C with a plain edge. The handle is made of a super durable Blue Isoplast® polymer with sliding safety and pocket clip.
While the Colonial 580 knife won't be winning any awards for it's good looks, it more than excels in it's utilitarian design, made in USA pedigree and price. This is an ideal knife to throw in a bug out bag, glove box or anywhere you might need a no thrills knife to get the job done without breaking the bank.
Please note: These are not the prettiest knives and DO have some imperfections, this is how they come from CKC. They have a lifetime warranty through CKC.
