Explorer 5.5" Prototype: Gray Terotuf & Natural Canvas Micarta

This is a prototype for the 5-1/2" long bladed Explorer.  The added length lends to better batonning capabilities and more efficient light-chopping.  This is the first official prototype for a length-modified existing model, and it may be in rotation in the future.
