Product DescriptionDown Under The Outback Eclipse, Black Leather Handle The Outback™ Eclipse
Because black is the new black.
The Outback™ has always been the most popular knife, and the most upgraded throughout its lifetime. Whenever we find a way to make it even slightly better, those changes tend to inevitably end up in the next production run. However, all along this development cycle, one recurring theme kept coming up - granted, mostly from people who had never used one, but it's a valid point nevertheless.
What if they didn't just offer improvements... but a choice?
Well, that choice is here today. Meet the Outback™ Eclipse - the proven Outback™ design in 1095 carbon steel and all dressed in black. The handle is all leather and dyed through in deep black. It comes with the same improved Mark II sheath design as the latest classic Outback™, only in black. The solid brass guard and pommel feature a high gloss polish, and the 58-59 RC heat treated blade guarantees it's every bit as rugged and dependable as its stainless steel sister we all know and love. It may look slightly more fashion conscious and you might find yourself oiling it a bit more often, whether it's entirely necessary or not... but it's still guaranteed not to slip on a turtleneck and wander off to sip a latte when there's work to be done.
