The MOAB Outdoor Knife is forged in the traditional Japanese Kuro-uchi style, with Gokunantetsu on the outside and a high-carbon white steel core forge welded on the inside. The blade is heated in a pine charcoal fire and then quenched in water to achieve the ultimate Rockwell hardness and insane cutting ability. The best all-round traditional Japanese outdoor blade.
This special edition MOAB comes with an “IT Industry” themed guard made of compressed layers of copper, brass, and carbon fiber.

*NOTE: Because all of Carter Cutlery blades have a forged distal taper (thicker in the middle, more thin towards the tip), the blade thickness given is dependent on what part of the blade is measured. On Kitchen knives we measure the blade thickness at or around the “Carter” stamp. On Neck knives and Outdoor knives we measure just in front of handle.
