Added to the line in 2013 – the Eagle Heavy Duty with Earth/brown scales has the Talon blade in laminated ZDP-189 steel. ZDP-189 is a powdered metal; with a carbon content of 3% which we heat treat to 64Rc. This makes it one of the hardest, toughest, high performance steels on the market today. Its edge retention is absolutely amazing!
The Eagle Heavy Duty model is built for the individual that carries the Eagle Ultralight for their “EDC” and wished they could have a tougher version with the same features as the Al Mar SERE 2000. Well here it is, the Eagle “HD” Heavy Duty. The “HD” weighs in at only one ounce more than the Ultralight™ version, it has skeletonized heat treated 400 series stainless steel liners, G-10 scales, adjustable action, dual thumbstuds and our reversible/removable pocket clip system which attaches through the lanyard hole. Just as the Eagle Ultralight is very easy to carry and disappears in your pocket, so does the Eagle Heavy Duty. They took the same great profile and slim design and added strength and features. The Eagle Heavy Duty – it will be your next favorite “EDC” or “Every Day Carry” knife.
