Be one of the first to get your hands on the new Mk3 knife.  The Mk3 platform departs only slightly from it's predecessor with the base metal, this time in CPM154 aviation grade stainless steel (powdered steel variant). We have also added both Cerakote bake on ceramic coating in various standard colors as well as our new "Micro Satin" finish.

The Vulture "Micro Satin" finish is a premium hand applied 4 step process that produces a very smooth and sophisticated  finish. The process all starts with polishing each knife in a ceramic media to even out all the microscopic pores of the steel.  Then the knives go through 4 more hand applied processes that leave the knife with an satin finish that is very smooth and even.  (If you have specific request please check out the Custom Shop section). 

All the products in Vulture's Knife & Tool division are given a name associated with the entomology of the species, in this case Cholera. This fixed blade was named for the disease that vultures help from spreading in the animal kingdom and ultimately onto humans. The design is ultra refined and while suitable for many survival tasks, it is actually intended as a "All Mountain" knife and is well suited for hunting, camping, ranching or guiding and general exploration. It features a modified Gyuto design, a Japanese word that means "meat sword", with a few of William's own personal tweaks like the drop point. With the addition of a new modified swedge the tip boasts a Trocar style tip allowing it to pierce cleanly and effectively, scrape down bark or be sharpened creating a second edge. 

The full tang blade features something that William has spent a great deal of time fine tuning, the 4-in-1 handle design. The user can capture a true "fist grip" with even closing the pinky finger completely which allows for the maximum transfer of power from the shoulder to the wrist. You can hold the blade comfortably in an "ice pick" fashion or even turn the blade inward for a real "butcher's" style grip allowing you to dispatch large carcass like a pro. Please make sure to check out the video explaining the design in our video section.

The Cholera's full tang design which is 3/16'' thick making this a truly capable tool. The grind profile is a true modified scandi with flat bevels with a secondary edge for strength and ease of sharpening.  The Mk3 knives now feature understated laser engraved company logo, Will's maker's mark (new for Mk3), steel type and Made In USA.

We also offer custom laser engraving for a small charge (lead times and graphic charges apply).
