Aaron started making knives more than a decade ago under the guidance of his father in law ~ John W. Smith.  Aaron has built a reputation on a legacy of precision fit and finish.  

 Aaron recently served in the United States Navy in a Visit, Board, Seach and Seizure team.  The VBSS teams are responsible for stopping, boarding and searching any suspicious vessel searching for drugs, weapons, terrorists, etc.  He developed a line of Combat knives termed the VBSS line, that would stand up to extreme use and abuse.  

 Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a direct Dealer for Aaron Frederick custom knives  

Direct from the Maker from the NYCKS 2011 

 This is Aaron’s presentation VBSS model.  Crafted from .155 thick CMP-154CM steel, full tang with an exposed Hammer Pommel.  The blade has a modified Tanto Point and a low hollow grind that provides a sharp cutting edge but retains the strength of the thick steel.  

 This version has upgraded Lightening Strike Carbon Fiber handles and Stainless Damascus Bolsters.  *That is oil on the blade, sorry. 

Both extremely tough materials, the LSCF is lightweight and the Damascus Bolster helps keep the balance point in the center of the knife.

The Double Ground Gut Hook can be used to cut Rope, cable, plasiticuffs or any fiberous material easily.  The top edge of the Gut Hook is left with an unsharpened flat surface that can be used to pull items into reach.  A custom Paracord Lanyard w/Skull Bead is included.  

 Not overly heavy but plenty strong! This knife comes complete in a RH thick Leather Belt sheath

An incredible value on this custom designed knife!
