Two companions at the beach! Zero Tolerance ZT0562CF and the Citizen Nighthawk watch on a grey nato strap!

The main horsepower of this knife comes from the Carpenter CTS-204P* powdered steel blade, said to have exceptional toughness, wear-resistance, and edge retention. The knife handles are a duo kind – having a carbon fiber front scale and a stonewashed titanium back scale. Quite pocketable at 5.5 oz. (156 g) and a blade length of 3.5″ (overall length 8.3″, closed 4.8″).

Pair this knife with a nice watch on a nato strap like the Citizen Nighthawk pictured and you’re all set for a summer day at the beach! (Photo: alaska_pcl – Instagram)

Opinel pocket knives are one of the most popular and inexpensive pocket knives available. Knifemaker Ross Tyler modded the No4 carbon steel knife, which he describes as a “pimped up toxic post apocalyptic Steam punk’ish Opinel mod”.

The carbon steel no.4 Opinel blade was striped out then dark etched in ferric with a hint of copper. The Higonokami style one piece handle was beaten out of an old copper pipe, which was flattened then hammer hardened. It is secured with a kydex eyelet and a torx pivot and was then all etched, brass blackened and then stone washed for an aged effect.
