Inspired by a Fred Perrin custom knife, it's thin, flat, light as a feather, and comes complete with a terrific Secure-Ex sheath. Without a doubt, what really sets it apart from the competition is the big advantage it offers in overall length, and its blade to handle ratio. These advantages are made possible because the Pro Guard's fiendishly sharp, slant point blade includes an integral finger hole, which in turn makes possible the use of an abbreviated pistol grip handle. It's fitted with G-10 scales and skeletonized to save weight, making it a natural in the forward-reverse grip. And, thanks to the integral finger hole, there's no possibility of the hand moving forward onto the blade on impact or losing control of it due to the effects of centrifugal force.
