The Kudu Lite model is designed to be even more affordable than the Kudu Ring Lock knife and it resembles our Ring Lock knife in every aspect except it relies on a heavy spring to keep the blade open like classic slip joint pocket knives. The 5Cr15MoV Stainless steel blade is flat ground and heat treated to Rc 56-57 for better edge holding ability and ease of re-sharpening, and a thin razor sharp edge. The handle is made of extremely strong 43% glass reinforced Zytel. Plus, the gripping surface has a wood grain texture for traction and features an attractive polished steel Kudu horn emblem for a little extra flair! The Kudu Lite represents an unbelievable value. It's ready for anything and makes a wonderful work knife, utility knife, bait knife, or hunting knife.
