Listing is for a Brand new one of Battle Horse Knives S30V Commache Knife I had made with leather sheath and one of my custom Kydex sheaths.
I had this knife blade made of S30V and stamped with my 7RB. Knife has black bead blasted micarta handles.
I made this taco style sheath from .080 Black Basket Weave Kydex. The sheaths eyelets are set for a large Tek Lok (not included). The Tek Lok can mount in the vertical, scout and modified scout positions as well as left or right hand pull. Knife locks in with a smooth pull.
The Comanche has been around for quite some time. It works in so many different areas. The spear point makes it a great bushcrafting knife. The handle has a nice curve to it so it is extremely comfortable in the hand. It can feather stick, plow, drill holes and much more. Great car kit knife, starter knife or EDC.

CPM S30V is considered a premium grade knife steel. It is so expensive that it strongly affects the price of the knife, and is largely used in higher-end production and custom knives. Buck Knives calls it "the absolute best blade steel available". Joe Talmadge claims it might be the ultimate high-end all-around stainless steel, due to high performance coupled with easier machinability and sharpen ability than the other steels in this class.
CPM S30V is a martensitic (hardened) powder-made (sintered) wear and corrosion resistant stainless steel developed by Dick Barber of Crucible Industries in collaboration with knifemaker Chris Reeve. Its chemistry promotes the formation and even distribution of vanadium carbides, which are harder and more effective at cutting than chromium carbides. These vanadium carbides give the steel a very refined grain, further improving the sharpness and toughness. Despite some difficulties with a consistent heat-treat, knifemakers use CPM S30V because its composition makes it easier to grind than other powder steels although the carbides still wear down the grinder belts considerably. Its composition is as follows: Carbon 1.45%, Chromium 14.00%, Vanadium 4.00%, Molybdenum 2.00%. Barber received feedback from a number of other knife users and knifemakers such as Sal Glesser, Ernest Emerson, Tony Marfione, Phil Wilson, William Harsey Jr., Tom Mayo, Jerry Hossom, and Paul Bos in the development of CPM S30V.
