Who needs the ULA Alpha knife?
The ULA Alpha is a 6-and-a-half-inch long knife that weighs less than an ounce, making it ideal for hikers and backpackers! It is a fixed blade that will not fold ( It would have made a better-fitting knife in the pocket if it could fold), yet it fits well in the waist strap pockets of most lightweight packs. It’s ideal for cutting meats and cheeses. And, unlike a folding knife, you can properly sterilize it after each usage. If you’re concerned about pack weight and want a sturdy, one-piece knife, the Alpha is a fantastic alternative.
The Nitro V steel sheepsfoot blade is constructed to slice effortlessly.
The blade is razor sharp, and the handle is comfortable to hold & easy to clean.
The knife also has a pocket clip for easy carrying and COMPACT.
ULA developed a knife that combined ultra lightness and utility with superior steel.
The Alpha is a practical, simple, and durable EDC knife. It’s great for slicing but not ideal for piercing or gutting. It’s one of the most popular knives and is a great option for a first EDC.
NO SCALES ON HANDLE – The Alpha’s handle is slender and barebones. Because it lacks scales, it isn’t the most comfortable knife grip for extended usage.
The ULA Alpha is a lightweight, fixed-blade knife great for slicing meats and cheeses. It is also easy to clean and sanitize. And surely, we think it is a great choice for those who need a versatile and durable knife. And would make a great backpacking knife companion.
