The Contingency is a fixed blade tactical knife that will attract any knife enthusiast's attention at first glance. With its signature curved handle, it looks like something that could share a pedigree with a karambit, with the drop point blade of a special forces combat knife. The angle of the handle out of the sheath also makes this knife a quick drawl - ready for anything.
With an overall length of 7 5/8" and a 3 1/2" long blade, this knife is designed with both standard and reverse grip use in mind--and balance, speed, and precision are key. The 80CrV2 high carbon stainless steel alloy is hard with an HRC of 57-58, but not so hard as to be impossible to maintain a sharp edge but extremely flexible. The high vanadium content reduces corrosion and gives the Contingency strength as well as hardness, which are both critical in a high-use, everyday carry knife. The 5/32" blade stock is honed to a razor's edge, which can take a lot of punishment. The black oxide no-glare finish prevents marring, reduces oxidation, and improves stealth in low-light conditions. Jimping on the back of the blade gives you extra support for power and precise cutting.
The tapered tang extends to the end of the handle for an outstanding in-hand balance. The grip is going to fit your hand perfectly to provide comfort and a sure grip in wet or dry conditions. A Kydex and felt-lined sheath, features a spring steel belt clip that keeps it ready for use whenever you need it, as well as being compatible with a variety of tactical harnesses or belts.

I like the ergonomics of this knife a lot. The handle fits my hand perfectly. My hands are a little small. Between medium and large mens gloves. I like the sheath, how it leans a bit to make it easier to grab. The bad part of it is that the blade is pretty dull. I can actually run the blade against my skin and nothing.. Will have to send out for sharpening.
