This is one of the thickest knives out there. The strength of this 3/8" thick piece of 5160 spring steel is awesome. It is a full tang, covered with Tan Canvas Micarta handle scales.
As the name implies, the 'Lil Roughneck' is very much like the hearty guys who do the hard and heavy work on the oil rigs. The term Roughneck is now a commonly-known term associated with rough and tumble guys.
The Roughnecks are of strong resolve, hardworking, and they 'Keep on Truckin.' With this in mind... this is definitely a specialty knife for a special guy.
