The description bellow is a bit heady, but the bottom line it is an excellent knife and would make a fine gift.
The Silver Trident has the most technically advanced handle ever engineered on a combat knife. It's resistant to heat, UV light and chemicals. The brainchild of William Harsey, Jr. and Chief Watson--a founding member of Navy Seal Team 2--the handle is a co-mold of two versions of the material called Hytrel®. Inside, t's a rock-hard version for strength. Outside, t's the soft, textured version for extreme grip control. The handle also features a stainless steel butt cap suitable for hammering or pounding in emergency situations. The handle is fastened to the blade with stainless steel fasteners. The blade is blackened to reduce glare and corrosion. The Silver Trident comes with a Blackhawk ballistic nylon sheath. The sheath also features a pocket on the front for accessories as well as multiple attachment straps and points for multiple carrying options. Silver Trident has an aggressive drop point blade made from 154CM stainless steel. The domestic equivalent of ATS-34, this U.S. made stainless steel takes and holds an edge better than other stainless steels.
