The Sod Buster Jr is smaller than the traditional Sod Buster without compromising durability. The blade is ideal for skinning purposes, among other different everyday demands. This knife is constructed with our Chrome Vanadium (CV) steel. Many Case users call on our traditional alloy steel blades to get the job done right while enjoying its ease of re-sharpening. Some will settle for nothing less than chrome vanadium blades since this unique formula of alloyed steel is the original Case blade steel. Case Chrome Vanadium blades are known for their edge-holding ability and easy re-sharpening. However, they are less resistant to rusting, pitting, and discoloration than stainless steel. We recommend keeping a thin film of oil on the blade to maintain the finish. This ensures that your knife will be around for future generations to enjoy. Comes conveniently packaged in a box. Made in Bradford, PA, USA, from domestic and imported materials.
