Containing generous amounts of tungsten, molybdenum, vanadium, and cobalt, it possesses exceptional toughness and high abrasion resistance, making it an excellent candidate for blade steel. These unique limited-edition Sprint Run knives combine all the proven design features of our best-selling lightweight models with full-flatground laminated blades made with a central core of HAP40 flanked by layers of SUS 410 martensitic stainless steel. All the knives in Spyderco's HAP40 Sprint Run series feature distinctive burnt-orange-colored FRN handles.
