Made of a single 5-inch piece of heat treated 440C stainless steel, the Shanghai Shank has a 2-inch blade that is ideal for utility work and skinning.
A green or black Cerakote finish and 5 feet of parachute cord wrapped around the handle make the knife discreet, sweat- and weather-resistant and tactile for use in all conditions. A low-profile Kydex sheath with paracord lanyard suspends the knife, handle-down, around the user’s neck. Price: $95.
