The UPK-M2 Lite offers the design features of the original UPK-M2 with a lightweight and economical high strength 7075-T6 handle set and a blade made in one of the most optimized blade steels available, Sandvik 14C28N.

Hand ground and hand finished blade made in Sandvik 14C28N Stainless Steel Hardened with Cryo to HRC 62 *last tested blade was HRC: 62.5.  The finish is a two-step blasting which includes a micro ball peening using ultra high density beads to create surface compression, a process that improves resilience to scratches and offers anti-fatigue properties.

Handle Finish: Hardcoat Anodized 7075-T6 Aluminum

   Made in the strongest Aluminum Alloy practical to make a handle from, the 7075-T6 Aluminum boasts a tensile stregnth of 74 ksi which is well into steel strength territory.  The hardcoat anodize is a military specification thickness of anodize that provides a high strength skin of Aluminum oxide to improve durability and scratch resistance over standard anodize aluminum parts. 

Available in Black, Navy Blue and Dark OD Green, the handles offer a stark contrast to the Blades micro peened surface.

I got this as an anniversary gift. My fiancee loves it and has been excitedly info dumping about the knife and its features. He cut himself and all he said was "still a cool knife".

UPK-M2 multi-tool

The build quality of the UPK-M2 is exceptional. The ergonomics are perfect and the blade is extremely strong. Very sharp too. One of the strongest selling points is that it is designed, built and manufactured in the US.
