Ambush Alpha knife in CPM-3V made by Bark River in the USA. This is the current model (2nd generation) of the knife with the more comfortable ergonomic handle.
It is much better looking in person than on any photo and is incredibly sharp. This knife is in almost like new condition, it has been used very lightly in the backyard to sharpen a few sticks and baton a few boards.There is slight hair line scratch on the blade which I tried my best to capture in one of the photos but you can't really see it unless you are looking for it and the light hits it just right, it is very light and can be easily buffed out if it bothers you. The scales are red linen Micarta, they are smooth yet very grippy and sit extremely comfortably in your hand. Even if your hand is soaking wet or your glove is covered in snow or ice the knife sits firm and solid without slipping or rotating. The knife comes with the original box but not its original sheath. The genuine leather sheath that is included is also made in the USA and has been treated with leather conditioner to make it weather proof. I tend to be very finicky about my knives and sharpened this one to a ridiculous level of sharpness. It will shave hair and cut paper like it was nothing.
Being that the blade is a 3V super steel it will keep this sharp edge for a very very long time even after hard prolonged usage. This is a beautiful solid high-end knife you can use your entire lifetime and still pass it down to your grandchildren. I tried my best to give as honest a description of the knife as I could.

The Ambush Alpha Knife is a full sized field knife made for general camp and outdoor use. This model utilizes Crucible's CPM 3V tool steel a very fine grained powder metallurgical super steel - which is then differentially heat treated to provide excellent edge retention and incredible toughness. It features a flat ground blade with a convex sharpened edge allowing for tremendous cutting/slicing performance with the durability of a strong, laterally supported convex edge.
We feel this flat to convex geometry is perfect for all around use and allows for easy field sharpening and for those who like V-bevel edges the knife can be easily converted with minimal effort using stones The rear tang stands proud of the handle to expose the lanyard hole and in an emergency can be utilized as a tool to pound with. Your Ambush Alpha is 100% built in the USA, the knife the leather sheath and even the boxes/stickers are made in the upper Midwest!
