3V Master Hunter, Hunting Knife with CPM 3-V steel blade, Stonewashed
Without a doubt, the Master Hunter is one of the finest hunting knives Cold Steel has ever produced. Available with Japanese San Mai® or with American CPM 3-V high carbon steel blades, it features a broad blade that’s been flat-ground to achieve the ideal blade cross-section and edge geometry for hunting application. Carefully honed to razor-sharpness, its edge cuts effortlessly while its dropped point simplifies the chore of field dressing and skinning. The spine of the blade is 5 mm thick to allow for the necessary strength and stiffness to field-dress and skin the biggest animals.
The grip is specially designed to promote long use without fatigue. Made of the shock absorbent, highly tactile Kray-Ex™, and featuring a deeply checkered surface, it will offer a secure purchase no matter how wet or bloody your hands get. Plus, Kray-Ex™ has specially enduring advantages in that it will never rot, shrink, crack, splinter, or mildew, and is completely impervious to even the harshest weather ? while still being comfortable to use for extended periods of time.
For safety, the Master Hunter comes in a thick Secure-Ex® sheath that will accommodate just about any size belt and allow you to carry it all day without fatigue.
CPM 3-V Steel
American CPM 3-V takes an extremely fine edge that is highly chip-resistant, and in recent years it has proved very popular with custom knife makers. Though costly, this modern tool steel is astonishingly tough and exceptionally wear-resistant. It is a fine-grained powdered steel, with a very uniform microstructure giving it excellent impact resistance and fine edge holding performance and making it perfectly suited for larger blades where extreme toughness is required.
