The PPK is a very slim, low profile knife. It has a subtle drop point. It is great for self defense or utility. The standard Kydex sheath is set up for either a neck chain or belt attachment. It is 7" overall with a 3.5" blade. The blade is .56" wide. It is amazingly comfortable for such a narrow knife. I generally use 154cm or S35VN as my stainless steels and D2 or 3V as my carbon steels. However, I can use whatever steel the customer would like. The standard handle is textured G-10. That can also be changed at the customers request.
