The 39LSFC Leatherneck-SF (for Semper-Fi) by Cold Steel has a beautiful saber ground clip point blade. Hollow ground and honed by hand to a startling razor sharpness. The blade is made from German D2 Tool Steel and finished with a non-reflective, highly scratch resistant black powder coating. To keep the fingers from sliding forward onto their keen edge, the Leathernecks come with a superior solid steel guard. Made of thick steel with double quillons that are turned slightly forward to provide excellent protection for your hand while offering minimal interference in the use of these knives when performing utility tasks.
