The Clashs 3-inch blade is just right for most tasks. Itll take on boxes, heavy plastic, rope, or whatever you need without complaint. The blade has plenty of belly and just the slightest hint of a recurve to improve slicing without being hard to sharpen. The Clashs blade steel offers stain and wear resistance as well as good strength. The Clash opens with SpeedSafe assisted opening for a satisfying twack as it locks into place ready for use. Both left and right-handed users can open the Clash one-handed thanks to the ambidextrous flipper.
