Drop Point EDC knife made of RWL34™
The Drop Point is the veteran among blades and an absolute beauty. An unpretentious look, robust tip, and the excellent manageability make this blade a favorite not just among EDC fanatics but also for daily tasks in general.
Our AK1 Drop Point is made of RWL34™. Whether you want to spend the day in the woods or are about to prepare food in the kitchen, this knife will not let you down.
Furthermore, we offer two different finishes for each blade. You can either go with satin or stonewash finish. While the choice is up to your personal taste, stonewashed blades are is particularly popular with many customers. If you really use a knife, traces of usage happen. A scratch here, some wear marks there. Stonewashed steel manages to mask most of these traces.
With scales that are screwed to a knife it is always possible that moisture seeps in between tang and scales. A thin layer of rust can form where tang and moisture meet. Even though it is only visible when the scales are removed and the knife’s quality isn’t lessened in any way, we attach a small package of oil to every order to counteract this process. Assembled knives have already had a thin layer of oil applied.
