Frog Market Special

We have been working on this knife for a few months now and wanted to make sure that it was just right before deciding to make it available to everyone. A thickness of only 1/16th of an inch (1.5875 mm) makes this knife the thinnest knife we have offered so far. The blade is 5 and a quarter inches (13.335 cm) long and it has an overall length of 9 and a half inches (24.13 cm). It weighs just 3.5 ounces (99.2233 gr) yet it is still a strong knife.

The FROG MARKET SPECIAL is made of 1095 High Carbon Steel, and has Tan Canvas Micarta scales. It has our new Black River Wash finish that is quickly becoming one of the most popular finishes that we have ever offered. The wide heel allows for deep, shearing cuts. The steep curve up to the edge slices well. As you use the knife, you’ll notice it has an ergonomic handle that is very comfortable. The thinner steel allows for clean, smooth cuts and gives the blade some added flexibility over thicker knives. The tip is also ideal for boning meats like chicken and pork. Although the Frog Market Special is great in the kitchen, you’ll find a myriad of uses for it while camping, fishing, and hunting as well.

Steven Dick, who is an editor with Tactical Knives, refined this design based on what he saw on a trip to Hanoi, Vietnam. He saw butchers and fish mongers using knives with a pattern that he’d never seen before. They were able to prepare meats and fish of many varieties easily using their unique blades. But rest assured, although the inspiration for the Frog Market Special comes from the markets in Vietnam, the KNIVES are still manufactured and hand-finished right here in the Rocky Mountains USA.
