With this knife, revel in the power and might of having your own Thunderous companion: a column of black and gold leaf blade rests toward the bolster. A river of blood-red resin pours down before stopping and the butt of the knife where the clear polyresin showcases a golden cat skull. Eviservating incisors, strong jaw in at the peak of its bite. Includes sleek walnut saya shown.

The blade is made from VG10 core hardened to 60 HRC. Multiple layers of stainless are forged on both sides of the blade that protect the core and result in the Damascus layer pattern.
