The grind is a hybrid, I call it double helix but it is basically a slightly modified saber grind. The name refers to the concave/convex nature of the grind and when viewed in cross section looks like the intersection of 2 helical planes, thus double helix. This blade design offers the ability to hold an incredibly sharp edge and the secondary grind (micro bevel) can be quickly sharpened in the field. Edge durability suffers minimally but is a non factor if you don't use your knife for chopping like an axe, battoning with the grain (splitting kindling) is 100% good. Battoning cross grain to fell green saplings even hard wood is also fine if done with care.
This knifes comes razor sharp
