The OKC Blackbird SK-5 knife blade is crafted from 154CM. This steel is American made, known for its superior toughness, edge-retaining ability, sharpness and corrosion resistance. The Blackbird SK-5’s knife blade is 3.3mm thick and features a full-taper grind.
The perimeter of the Blackbird SK-5 knife features a Micarta Handle, rounded to provide a comfortable grip and secured to the knife tang with stainless steel Allen screws.
The Blackbird SK-5 knife comes complete with a MOLLE compatible sheath that features a rigid protective insert. The sheath also features a belt loop so that it may be worn on the hip in the traditional belt mount configuration.
“I believe the more complicated a product becomes, the more likely it is to fail when your life depends on it. For this reason I designed The Blackbird SK-5 Knife to achieve maximum function delivered through pure simplicity. You won’t see gimmicks or gadgets on this knife…only the core essentials that provide the user with comfort and a sharp edge to handle the most demanding wilderness survival tasks.” -Paul Sheiter, Blackbird designer.
