“This will be the only run I do for a while, so don’t operate under the premise that if you don’t get in on these, you’ll get one later.  Later could be 3-4 years from now b/c of the demand for tactical folders.” – MT

 

The Hardin WSK is a re-design of the WSK  popularized by Dave Beck. This model differs from the original in several ways. First, the blade has a modified downward angle which allows for more down-swing force when chopping. Second, the blade features a hollow that goes much higher than the original which allows for much easier and smoother slicing. Third, the blade has a sharpened quarter rounder which is more of a gut hook than a quarter rounder. Next, the teeth on the top, while made more for square notching, are more than capable of medium duty saw work.  The teeth are also formed in a way that they can double as wire cutters. Also, a thumb ramp was added on the top and handle to allow better grip.  The handle is also contoured in such a way that  it allows maximum grip in either the forward or downward position.

The blade is made from 1/4  stock steel (CPM154).
