This trainer is made from stainless steel with a stonewash finish on both the handle and the blade. Notice the holes cut out of the blade. These are so the blade is lighter making the knife more aerodynamic. This knife comes with double tang pins to hold the blade away from the handle. At the end of the bite handle is a latch, use this to lock the handles in place. Provided is a belt clip for carrying your knife right along with you.
