Poly/oxide hard coat finished blade!
Previously only available to the U.S. military, the KCU has six tools that feature a black finish that doesn't reflect light. Combined with the US branded non-skid handles in an OD green color, this gives the knife an inconspicuous look and a low profile.
This is a great knife. No joke. Sturdy and crafted of higher quality materials. Excellent features and a tough blade make this a pocket chum... but... what's missing? A pocket clip. The tiny ring that you might be able to attach to something larger isn't adequate. for most of us. We aren't Cub Scouts wearing a little belt and a knife clip. I want one handed extraction and deployment in all situations.; I will see if I can modify mine to make that work. If you're comfortable with this buried in your pocket- more power to you. The lack of the clip is the only reason I won't 5 star this...
I saw this knife with the US, the Army green and made by Victorinox and I was sold. Being former Army, I love Army green and anything with US on it. Victorinox is a legendary knife brand. I collect knives and prefer fixed blade but this folder was too badass to pass up on. The blade is razor sharp and the saw teeth have serious bite. The other tools will no doubt come in handy, if I decide to use them. The packaging is so cool I kept it for collection purposes. This is a well made knife and I highly recommend it.
Great knife. Exactly what I expected. Knocked off a star because it’s wound so tight I can’t get the awl out without the use of another knife or screw or something w a point on it (my weak finger nails can’t swing it - hopefully it will loosen w use ). Otherwise it’s a beaut! My father in law agreed, and wants one specifically because of the black metal look. The knife is sharp, and all the tools do what they are supposed to. Thanks CC for the Christmas sale on this! Worth every penny.
Excellent. No issues at all, well the price but hey, want a good knife, you gotta pay.
I have carried the Victorinox One Handed Trekker for well over 20 years and have had several of them in that time. This is the same knife but with black tools and the US printed olive drab scales. There's something about this particular version that always has me reaching for it over other knives. As a general design it's extremely useful, with a good selection of stout tools, sharp blade, locking big screwdriver, etc. The saw, as is usual for Victorinox, really punches above its weight. I wish these scales had the toothpick and tweezers, but other than that there is nothing I can be critical of on this knife. It is my "one knife" and has been for a long time.
