For starters, the Hood Thug uses 5160 Carbon Steel which is an excellent choice for a big blade that may be called on to do heavy chopping but still needs to be able to take a sharp edge. The slight recurve on the blade makes it excellent for pulling cuts and the recurve puts weight forward of the mid-point which should help the Thug chop effectively. The angled thumb ramp features jimping along the forward portion for additional control when choking up on the knife for fine work but keeping it out of contact with your hand when chopping. The linen micarta scales are removeable and are grooved for additonal grip when wearing gloves.
The Hood Thug includes a MOLLE compatible belt sheath that has a pouch on the front for a small folding knife, a multi-tool, or sharpening stone. The Buck Hood Thug is an outstanding choice for anyone looking for a high-quality American Made fixed blade that can help you survive in any conditions.
