The SkelePAL is designed as an EDC (Every Day Carry) knife, meant to give you everything you need, and nothing you don’t. It is large enough to handle work chores, woods/field use, it excels at hunting/cleaning game, and pretty much whenever you just need to cut stuff. Ground to slice, not for abuse.
The idea of not having handle scales is to bring down the weight so that you get a larger more capable blade for the same weight as a smaller blade with handle scales. This also makes it exceptionally easy to clean. The GunKote finish helps to further the corrosion and stain resistance of the cryogenically treated 440C stainless steel, while also eliminating the reflective finish of the steel. The ultra thin baked on KG GunKote finish is virtually impervious to solvents, and wipes clean with WD-40 or alcohol, and requires no maintenance.
These have a surface ground finish on the flats, and are hollow ground on a large wheel for cutting aggression and durability. All corners and edges are radiused for comfort, with the exception of the spine, which is left sharp for scraping and striking a fire steel. Comes in Tanker Gray GunKote with black kydex and black lanyard, occasionally there are different colors when I feel like changing them up. You can select the color of your choice, but that will add to the cost, as limiting options is what makes these economically feasible.
