Its has been said many times, but is worth repeating: folders are great, but nothing beats a fixed blade for speed of deployment and simplicity. The Bawidamann Stark is a minimalist 'hideout' fixed blade that is easy to carry. Perfect for a neck knife, or other sneaky carry methods. The tip of that wharncliffe profile blade provides devastating cutting power despite its small size. The blade is CPM CRUDER (similar to CPM 3V in toughness) which is a super tough steel that is Cerakoted for corrosion resistance. Comes with a Boltaron scabbard with paracord.
