The Vendetta 4, or V-4 is a more compact variant of the V-4.5 that is optimized for every day carry, concealed carry or even covert carry situations. Featuring a 4" blade length and very purposeful overall design, the V-4 provides an outstanding amount of functionality in a very discreet package. Although the V-4 is optimally designed for a more narrow hand, it is still fully functional for a hand up to the large side of medium. The ergonomic handles and very pronounced guard provide excellent retention in a variety of positions, to keep your grip confident and on target during high stress situations. The attractive radius machined spine provides additional security, giving you better axial control over the knife, while being subtle enough to not create hot spots. For the V-4 we've omitted the glass breaker in favor a more minimal pommel style, to better suit this models' design intention. Although it will not be sharpened, the first production run of the V-4 also features a fully sharpenable swedge grind, in the event your situation calls for more slashing/penetration potential. For those wondering about compatibility, the V-4 and V-4.5 do share the same handle.

A bit about the steel used in SURVIVE! Knives:
CPM-3V is a high alloyed tool steel, made using the Crucible Particle Metallurgy process, that has a very high impact toughness and excellent edge holding. Being made with the CPM process, this steel is also very resistant to lateral stress (flex) breakage, making it a perfect choice for a high performance, hard use knife. CPM-3V is not a stainless alloy and can stain if not cared for. Check out the CPM-3V Data Sheet
CPM-154 is a high carbon stainless steel. This grade features good toughness, corrosion resistance and edge holding. Being a vanadium free steel, CPM-154 is easy to resharpen in the field and takes a very keen edge. Check out the CPM-154 Data Sheet.
