You have never seen anything that compares to the M48 Solar Flare Gold Cyclone Fixed Blade Knife! The gold and black, 8” cast stainless steel blade has been crafted into a spiraling masterpiece of design, using temperatures up to 1,030 degrees, which gives it a 48HC. The three spiraling cutting edges come down to an incredibly sharp piercing point. As with all M48 knives, the glass-fiber-reinforced nylon handle gives you a strong and secure grip. The Cyclone also features a solid stainless steel hand guard and skull crusher pommel. The blade slides into a custom Vortec belt sheath that fits like a glove and is virtually indestructible. The fixed blade is 13 1/2” in overall length.
