Just another ring knife...well not quiet.
The bodyguard was born from a custom order by an Infantry NCO. This design is fundamentally different from my previous ring knives due to the straight handle-blade design with oversized retention ring. The blade is narrow, easy to fit onto gear and easy to grab with or without gloves. The construction, size and neutral shape makes an ideal carry blade in civilian clothes as well as in uniform. Self defense, daily EDC, or outdoor tasks, you can name it, and the bodyguard will be up to the task.
The production version is made out of 52100 steel heat treated to the optimal 60-61HRC Range for toughness, and edge retention.
