The Victorinox Outdoor Master Mic Large 4.2261 is a sturdy knife. Made for heavy duty use. The knives in the Victorinox Outdoor Master collection are the first fixed outdoor knives from Victorinox. A big step for a brand that is mainly known for its multi-functional Swiss folding knives. The Outdoor Master collection is made by Manufacturas Muela, a Spanish knife-maker who specializes in making sturdy fixed knives. The result is therefore very impressive. You can use a knife from the Outdoor Master series for camping or bushcraft purposes.
The handle is made from blue-black layered micarta with red liners. Micarta is a material consisting of a linen or paper cloth, impregnated with an epoxy-based resin. The material is compressed under high pressure. The result is an incredibly beautiful, sturdy handle material that offers a lot of grip. Even in humid weather conditions, the material retains its grip. Victorinox has placed a lanyard hole at the end of the handle. As such you can attach a piece of paracord.
The blade is made from a steel that can compared to the famous 1.4110 steel that is used for Swiss pocket knives: 1.4116 steel. A good stainless steel grade that is easy to maintain. Great for when you're in the woods and quickly need to sharpen your knife. Victorinox has also enhanced the Outdoor Master series with a scandi grind. In fact, a large secondary edge, without any further frills. Because the blade is relatively thick, it is very strong and can handle quite a lot. A scandi grind is great for wood work. Because the pliers of the blade protrude at the end of the handle, you can also use that part as a improvised hammer.
The Outdoor Master Mic Large comes with a robust kydex sheath. It is equipped with a nylon belt loop and an adjustment screw to adjust the tension of the sheath. This allows you to choose how firmly the knife is secured in the sheath. The side of the sheath is enhanced with a kydex holder for your firesteel.
