Industrial vacuum hose. Very tough, hard rubber with a single stainless steel wire running throughout.
I just about had a heart attack when I found the wire running inside the rubber...wasn't aware of it. <b>BUT </b> , my Blue Rescue SE actually <i>cut </i> the wire on the first part of the hose where I had begun cutting!!! I didn't want to take a chance with the second part of the hose, so I used my Leatherman ST200 to cut the remaining part of the wire to finish the cut. Even though the wire had deformed the <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>Edge slightly, the VG10 STILL cuts like a champ. <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>
My Blue Rescue needs a little TLC, so it will soon be taking a trip back to Spyderco for resharpening. <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>
