When you are sneaking through the night, you don't want to be seen when you pull your knife out. You will be pleased to find that both the blade and the handle of this folder are black. The blade is stainless steel and is just over three inches long. The handle for this sweet knife is a black wood that is not going to reflect any light from the moon. Even the included pocket clip is a dark shade, so there is nothing for light to shine on when you are using this knife.
