The broad clip point of the blade of the Trail Master is extremely resistant to bending or breaking. This is largely due to the fact that the tip is actually thicker near the point than what is seen on competitor's knives. This, however, does not mean that the point is dull or blunt. On the contrary, the point is almost needle sharp and offers tremendous penetration. Plus, the blade-back is equipped with a slightly concave false edge that measures approximately three and a half inches long.
Every Trail Master's edge has been honed by hand, then given a high-speed buff until it is truly razor sharp and capable of easily shaving the hair off one's arm. This knife is so sharp it will cut at the slightest touch. The Trail Master balances approximately 3/4 inch in front of the guard for a slightly blade-heavy feel that is ideal for delivering heavy chopping and slashing strokes. The Trail Master's Kray-Ex handle is 5 inches long and deeply checkered for a non-slip, shock-absorbing grip. What's more, its contoured cross-section helps prevent the knife from shifting or turning in the hand when striking full power blows. The double guard is very sturdy and rigidly fixed into place. It is long enough to keep fingers off the blade, yet short enough to avoid being tangled in clothing or equipment when the Trail Master is drawn.
