The Extreme Ops SWEXT fixed blade knife from Smith and Wesson has a thick 1/4 inch full-tang stainless steel blade that tips our scales over the 1 pound mark! What this means to the user: this knife can take a beating. The black finished blade is spear point shaped with a wide profile and a plain edge for multiple cutting tasks. The micarta handle has a great shape with an index finger groove and notched thumb placement so you can wield this mighty knife. Includes a fitted black sheath with belt loop for horizontal or vertical carry. This isn't quite built and finished like more expensive knives, but it represents a lot of bang for the buck!
