 This is a proven, Lethal Tactical design that is ready for any Urban or Combat Survival / Military application.  

This Customized Example was completely Reground by the Maker to enhance the “most Lethal” attributes.

Each Knife is Double Tempered and Tested for an Rc Value of 58-60. A Generous area of Thumb Ridges help to improve the Grip.  Note the almost Full Length Custom Fullers on Top – these act as channels for Liquid or Soft Material and help to make the blade very Fast in the hand. 

 This Special Customized Example has a Rare Double Ground Tanto Blade with Difficult Duplex Grind.  The Integral Design maintains the Full Thickness of the material until you reach the Wicked Penetrator Tip. 

 Horizontal Traction Grooves on the Tang provide a sure grip and this also helps to keep the Paracord in place even under other than ideal conditions. This example also has Speed Holes in the Handle area under the Cord Wrap.
