The AR-RPM9 blade is a modified Wharncliffe reverse tanto design with a slight belly and a pointy tip for stabbing and puncturing holes. It's one of our favorite shapes as it does every task you could ask of a folding knife with ease. AR-RPM9 is CJRB and Artisan Cutlery's proprietary budget steel made with a powder metallurgy process. A small finger choil (more of a sharpening choil actually), a reversible deep carry pocket clip, and dual thumb studs are just icing on the cake at this price and we highly recommend you give the Maileah a shot. Swaggs nailed it with this one.

A fantastic little knife, perfect for slicing biltong, opening boxes and cutting just about anything.
Easily fits in the "money" pocket of jeans and shorts.
Small in the hand, but then again this is designed to be a small EDC option.
I am very happy with my purchase.
As this was my first purchase from "The Knife Guy", I can say that I was very impressed and the package was delivered quickly.
