The handle is a smooth White Synthetic and is built for everyday use and maintains a consistent color throughout. The blade is 11.75 inches, heavy gauge stainless steel with a double row of sharp saw teeth along the spine.
Would I use this on a camping trip? Maybe.
I’m just bummed that it doesn’t come with a sheath. All I can imagine are astronauts going up into space holding this knife.
