The grinds of blade come from its butt. The section is a flat wedge. The thickness of the blade at the cutting edge is 1/32 in. The blade is made of Z60 steel – a French counterpart of Russian 420J (425 mod) steel. Thanks to molybdenum-vanadium doping, the cutting edge has a high resistance to wear and responds well to sharpening.
The handle is made of cast rubber-plastic Elastron G, which has excellent anti-friction properties. Working with the knife is perfectly safe, despite the lack of stops.
The Lis with an Elastron handle is more practical, but it apparently loses the knife with wooden plates.
The pommel has a lanyard hole.
The knife comes with leather sheath of, Scandinavian type. It is glued, stitched and additionally fastened with two rivets at the beginning and the end of the seam. The leather is soft and supple. The manufacturer provided even a drainage hole to drain the water trapped inside.

The user is given a manual choice of wearing the knife on a free or rigid suspension.
