Adorned with ornate relief patterns and handsome pakkawood handle scales, Ridge Runner's "Foxthorn" Fixed Blade Knife is undeniably chic, but don't let its refined allure fool you. Beneath its charming facade, the Foxthorn is brutal and capable, boasting an impressive stainless steel blade with a razor sharp edge. This elegant-yet-potent knife is perfect for the Jekyll and Hyde in all of us - part gentleman, part primitive savage. Delicate woodgrain peeks through gentle tones of garnet and wine red on the Foxthorn's pakkawood handle scales. The deep red is offset beautifully by smaller black pakkawood handle scales. Polished to a mirror shine and glowing radiantly, metal alloy spacers beautifully offset the raw, natural appeal of the wood. Swirling floral patterns stand in bold relief on the metal guard, while ergonomic contours and impeccable balance afford the Foxthorn fantastic hand-feel and exceptional control. And ample control is essential for a knife this powerful. The imposing 12 1/4" Foxthorn is great for rigorous, demanding chores, but its superb weight distribution and effortless blade manipulation make it equally well suited to fine, delicate tasks. Likewise, it's ideal for both display and field use. But regardless of how you use it, since it's from Ridge Runner, you can rest assured you're getting a knife made for a lifetime at an unequaled value!
