The tang is skeletonized to save weight, and the synthetic rubber handle was designed by someone who has used a knife in the field. It’s slab-sided with rounded corners, slightly sticky to the touch, and long enough to accommodate even a big hand. It will not twist, or fatigue your hand, or cause you to yell “Mommy!” if you pick it up in cold weather. OKC has equipped the Hunt Plus with a nylon sheath that actually fits, and has two keeper straps instead of one. As I said, whoever designed the Hunt Plus has hunted or, if not, he/she has listened very carefully to people who have. The MSRP is $56.95. It’s made in the United States and backed by OKC’s lifetime warranty.
