The first thing that draws your eye is the full handle. The blue just pops against the shiny silver surface of the polished steel pommel and guard. The wooden mounts have been stained blue and polished. The grain shows through exquisitely. The massive blade has a satin finish with 3 large fullers on one side. The Hunt For Life™ is also featured on the blade. This knife is beautiful all around and comes equipped with a Hunt For Life™ nylon sheath with a snap closure and belt loop.
