This smart knife design from the engineering experts at Smith & Wesson fuses the comfortable sizing and feel of a pocket knife with the stability and toughness only a fixed blade can provide. Developed especially for military and police but now available to civilians, the Smith & Wesson M&P Fixed Blade Knife boasts a full tang 4 1/16" fixed blade forged from professional grade 8Cr13MoV high carbon stainless steel. Partially serrated with a combination drop / tanto point profile, the black-coated M&P blade is extraordinarily versatile. The distinctive upswept tanto point yields maximum penetrating power, while the bitter serrated edge makes quick work of cleaving fibrous, woody and other particularly challenging materials. And since it's a fixed blade - a Smith & Wesson fixed blade, no less - , you can tackle even the most challenging tasks with gusto, vigor and confidence, never fearing catastrophic blade damage or failure. The M&P's aluminum handle features a sleek, modern industrial look, with generous finger choils, rugged thumb rest jimping and a rubberized grip for a superb hand-feel and improved control. At 8 11/16" long overall, the M&P is amply sized for a wide range of cutting jobs, yet is easy to transport in the field, especially with the included M.O.L.L.E. compatible thermoplastic belt sheath. When mobility, speed and flexibility are crucial, don't let big, brash bowie knives weigh you down. Get bowie strength and power from a lightweight, easy-to-carry tool with Smith & Wesson's potent-yet-streamlined M&P Full Tang Fixed Blade Knife.
