The 4 Max Scout is easier to produce and is a far more affordable alternative compared to the original 4 Max. Featuring an extra-wide, stonewash drop point blade, crafted from 5mm thick AUS 10A steel, for strength, toughness and edge holding potential. The handle’s silhouette mirrors the original. Instead of a G-10 handle the 4 Max Scout has Griv-Ex™ with stainless steel liners and a Griv-Ex™ backspacer. Equipped with Andrew Demko’s groundbreaking Tri-Ad® locking mechanism the 4 Max Scout has passed every one of grueling shock and impact tests and then gone on to hold 600 lbs. of free-hanging weight without damage!
