"The wharncliffe blade design is one of the most functional utility patterns ever developed. Thanks to the efforts of edged-weapon designer and trainer Michael Janich, it has also earned a reputation as an incredibly potent personal defense design. Janich's new Be-Wharned features an aggressive, satin-finished AUS8A stainless steel blade that provides extreme cutting performance for its size. It is mated to a handle constructed of hardened 420J stainless steel liners nested into textured black G-10 scales. A sturdy liner-lock mechanism, exceptional ergonomics, and a four-position clothing clip complete the package, making the Be-Wharned one of the most advanced tactical folding knives available today."
