White River Knives Knucklehead

The unique Knucklehead from White River Knives is not a comment on those in or running for elected office. Constructed of only American-made CPM S30V high-carbon stainless steel* at a 60 Rockwell hardness, its 2.875-inch, chisel-ground blade is intended to hold a highly effective edge for a lot of heavy cutting.

At just 1.7 ounces, the Knucklehead is near feather-light for its potential uses. The ergonomically designed CNC manufactured holes make a super-positive, slip-resistant finger-inserted (if desired) grip in most any conditions. The rearmost hole even doubles as a bottle opener.

Two models are available - a natural stone finish and a black PVD ionbond® finish.** PVD is an ultra-hard, abrasion-resistant finish that is rated at an astounding 85 Rockwell C hardness.

White River's intelligent Kydex sheath allows you to wear the Knucklehead as a neck knife, boot knife or on the belt by using its unique multi-position clip to adjust the wearing position to your preference.

In addition to its American-made steel, every Knucklehead component is U.S.-made and manufactured; there is nothing foreign in White River knives.
