This is the Swedish version of a survival knife. It has a wide blade with a dramatic grind. I'm told that the thinned out front portion of the blade improves the skinning qualities. The stainless blade is .098" thick and a bit over 4 1/2" long. The handle is also about 4 1/2". Handle and sheath are military green and gray plastic. The center portion of the handle is slightly soft, and has a textured surface for improved grip. The handle is sized for average to large sized hands. The weight of the knife and sheath is just under 5 ounces.
