Michael Burch designs have always stood out as something special. His sophisticated designs are intended to provide maximum utility, characterized by the use of premium materials and selective hardening of his custom knives. The Impetus is one of his classics - an extremely rugged knife with refined ergonomics that can handle any cutting chore. The 440C stainless steel blade is hinged on an IKBS ball bearing, and is conveniently opened with the flipper. The handle scales are rugged G10, set off by stainless steel bolsters.
