R2 Scout is our most advanced fixed blade knife for active outdoor use. It is an all-round knife of the highest quality, a knife you can really trust if a demanding situation should arise. It is strong without being heavy and bulky and you get a good, secure grip thanks to our classic anatomically well-designed handle. The knife sheath has a two way locking system, partly a spring assisted key lock that generally holds the knife in the sheath, and partly a shackle lock that you fold down to 100% securely lock the knife in place. The steel we use is a world-class Swedish powder steel (Elmax) that is carefully hardened, cooled to minus 190 C and then tempered for two hours to a hardness of HRC 61/62. It gives a tough and at the same time hard steel that stays sharp for a long time without being brittle.
