This Tactical Response III features a desert sand anodized aluminum handle with grooves milled on the front face, while the back face is smooth with a tip-up carry pocket clip. The hardware, push button and clip are black finished. The 154-CM stainless steel blade is black coated with a plain cutting edge. The TR-3 is a knife that won't let you down. It fires hard, locks up like a rock and feels great in hand. The slim design sits comfortably for pocket carry.
