Here are the details from Lone Wolf Knives:
The Trailmate fixed blade knife by Lone Wolf was designed by custom knife maker Steve Kelley. The Trailmate has a 3.5 inch long blade built from 154CM premium stainless steel. The handle slabs are brown jigged bone for a great looking non-slip grip. The handles are riveted into place in two positions and epoxy sealed under the bone to the blade. There is a lanyard hole to provide added security when using or carrying the knife should you choose to employ a lanyard. The handle shape has two deep finger groves to enhance the grip/control of the blade under slippery conditions. The top edge of the blade also has thumb-notching just forward of the handles to also enhance the grip when putting downward pressure on the blade with your thumb. We heat treat, temper and cryogenically freeze each blade to maximize the properties of this exotic stainless steel.
The Trailmate comes with a high quality horizontal carry leather belt sheath to protect the knife and user. The Trailmate has excellent balance and rugged durability with its full-tang construction. The Trailmate has a limited lifetime warranty.
