"Hooded Warrior" Sniper's Tactical Combat Knife

This is an excellent combat knife designed by a sniper for sniper's adjunct and combat use in the theatre of operations in Iraq. He put a lot of thought and reason into the design, and I constructed it with the same care. It's made of .250" thick bead-blasted 440C high chromium stainless tool steel for ease of care, toughness with hardness, and no glare to alert the enemy. The aggressive blade has a huge sweeping belly for slashing cuts, a very sharp point that offers improved piercing with the addition of a top swage. The hollow ground knife is extremely sharp, and the thin area near the ricasso insures a keen cutting edge for line, rope, or textiles. The design has a forward leaning blade to handle angle, which is usable in either forward or reverse grip (with the thumb atop the rear bolster). The fittings are nickel silver, the handle is zero-care micarta phenolic, which is bead blasted for a solid grip. The finger grooves, front quillion, and handle belly make it a very comfortable knife to hold. The filework on the bolsters and spine in the critical areas around the bolsters improve tactile security. Because the spacing in regular and cross-hatched, it's properly called jimping. This knife comes with the best military combat sheath made, my waterproof locking model made of double thick kydex, high strength 5052H32 corrosion resistant aluminum frame, and all stainless mechanism components, secured with .250" blued steel Chicago screws, making the loops reversible for left/right or up/down wear. This is a fine, real combat knife, well thought out, and in use in combat operations. Below: close-up of sniper symbol engraved in micarta handle. You can also see the bolster filework for improved grip and the sheath's positively locking stainless steel mechanism.

Thanks, D. P.!
