The Ceramic E.O.D. Knife has been redesigned with a slightly longer, curved handle with serations along the top and bottom to provide a more secure and ergonomic grip. The grip also now features a convenient lanyard hole. The original black ceramic blade has been replaced with a white ceramic blade. The white blade is easier to see when using it in cramped, dark spaces.
Ceramic bladed knives are popular with military and police organizations for use in EOD operations. Ceramic blades have the advantage of being non-conductive and non-magnetic. However, since the handles of folding knifes are usually 400 stainless steel, there is a slight magnetic field present. To resolve this problem the E.O.D. knife has a non-magnetic handle made from high-impact plastic.
The sheath, made from the same durable high-impact plastic as the handle, prevents accidental damage to the blade and protects against accidental injury while carrying in an EOD tool kit. Self-draining slots at the tip allow water or other contaminants out of the sheath.
