It's smaller and lighter than the 0100, yet still built to handle tough duty.
The 0160 fixed-blade features a high-performance Sandvik 14C28N blade with Tungsten DLC non-reflective coating. The 14C28N stainless provides an ideal combination of hardness and corrosion resistance. The steel’s chemistry has been boosted to provide excellent edge performance, high hardness, and good corrosion resistance. The hair-popping sharp edge resists chipping and rolling. Yet, unlike some high-performance steels, re-sharpening is easy. The .156 in. (.4 cm) -thick blade stock provides additional strength and is coated with Tungsten DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon). This hard coating not only makes the blade non-reflective, but also enhances toughness and provides additional shielding from corrosion.
The 0160’s handle scales are machined G-10 for great grip. The handle just locks right into the hand and the forefinger contour enables multiple grip options. The large, pointed pommel is quite aggressive and permits punching. The G-10 itself was chosen for its imperviousness to temperature extremes as well as for its excellent insulating properties. The 0160 comes with a MOLLE compatible sheath with multi-carry options.
We have seen this knife described as “balls-to-the-wall awesome,” and we would have to agree.
