The Maserin Scout is a practical and compact EDC pocket knife. The first thing you notice is the stunning coloured micarta handle. Micarta is comprised of layers of canvas with epoxy which is compressed under high pressure. This leaves you with a very sturdy and beautiful handle material. Interesting about micarta is that it can become darker after use. It is the result of the oils in your hand that form a sort of patina. Getting tired of this dark colour? Simply degrease it with some petrol and the micarta will be almost as good as new again.
The Scout is enhanced with a slipjoint-mechanism. With a slipjoint the blade won't lock when opened. As such the Scout is legal to carry in almost every country! You can easily open the Scout with the nailnick. Like classic slipjoints this knife has a half-stop. This means that halfway the blade needs to be pushed over an additional 'threshold'. This functions as an additional safety mechanism. If the blade accidentally closes during use, it will stop halfway through. Better safe than sorry! The blade is made from D2-steel. A strong type of steel that can handle quite a lot. Do, however, make sure you properly clean the blade. D2 is namely not completely stainless.
Considering the lower price range the Maserin Scout is also great as a gift to a loved one.
