KA-BAR TDI Shark Bite

KA-BAR’s newest addition to the TDI line is likely it’s most discreet. The new Shark Bit has the familiar angled blade to handle relationship for which the rest of the TDI knives are known. However, unlike previous offerings, the Shark Bit is made completely of polymer – Ultramid® to be specific. The knife and sheath are completely non-metallic except for the included ball chain neck lanyard which does not have to be used.

The sheath is worth pointing out in some detail. Many manufacturers make non-metalic knives and then use metal eyelets or clips in the sheath which, of course, defeats the purpose of a non-metallic knife. The sheath KA-BAR includes with the Shark Bite appears to be truly non-metalic and features enough attachment points to allow for a variety of carry methods.

The blade is 2.625” long (legal in most jurisdictions) and the overall length is 5.125”. It weighs under 2.5 ounces and is made in the USA.

Sneak Peek: TOPS Knives Hammer Hawk Prototype Sheath

TOPS Knives rolled out several new products at SHOT Show and the Hammer Hawk was likely the most talked about. The details of the full-tang tomahawk were mostly ironed out at the time of the show but TOPS did state that they were still working on the sheath for both the tomahawk its companion knife.

Now we have this sneak peek of the prototype sheath set up. Details are likely to change on the production version but this gives us a sold idea of what we can look forward to. It looks like TOPS will have a belt sheath for the companion knife and a bit cover that still allows the user access to the Hammer Hawk’s hammer poll when installed.

TOPS also tells us that the Hammer Hawk is likely not going to make it retail until sometime the last half of 2017 (Q3 or Q4).

BLADETRICKS Stop Switch

If you took a push knife and stripped it down to its barest essentials, it might look something like the BLADETRICKS Stop Switch. The spike like “blade” flares to a rounded handle with G10 scales that rests against the palm the same way the handle on a push dagger would. This compact, minimalist design makes Stop Switch easy to carry and intuitive to use.

The Stop Switch is custom made by BLADETRICKS so the specs vary from knife to knife. The one shown below with yellow G10 handle slabs is ground from 3mm thick 6150 steel with an overall length of 70mm (2.75″). You can view it and other custom knives at BLADETRICKS.net.

RMJ Tactical News: Death Dealer Battle Axe and Last of the Drop Forged Shrikes

There is a lot of news coming out of RMJ Tactical these days including a new axe inspired from an iconic work of art and an iconic tomahawk undergoing some changes.

The new Death Dealer Battle Axe should be instantly recognizable for those who are fans of artist Frank Frazetta. It is inspired directly from Frazetta’s well known painting, Death Dealer. This axe is a joint offering from RMJ Tactical and Frazetta Jr. Enterprises.

From RMJ Tactical’s product page:

Each of these axes is individually serial numbered on the neck with the Frazetta signature on the other side. The head of the axe features RMJ Tactical’s new Death Dealer Battle Ax Seal as well as the Frazetta Seal of Authenticity.

See the Death Dealer Battle Axe at RMJ Tactical.

From one icon to another… Frank Frazetta is an icon of fantasy art world and the RMJ Tactical Shrike and S13 are icons of the tactical tomahawk world. However, those iconic tomahawks are about to undergo some changes. RMJ Tactical is moving to a new shop and that new shop will come with new capabilities. The Shrike and S13 will no longer be drop forged. The next batch will be machined from billet like the rest of the RMJ Tactical line.

If you want a drop forged Shrike or S13, you better grab one from this current batch. See them at RMJ Tactical.

BRAZA EDC Folder from Bastion

Bastion just launched their newest EDC knife and the timing is great (for you) because they also happen to be hosting a Valentine’s Day sale (see image below).

The BRAZA EDC Folder follows on the success of their PARTIZAN EDC Folder. The PARTIZAN was more of a slim, sleek, gentleman’s knife with tactical sensibility but the BRAZA is larger, more substantial, but but still very refined. It features a 3.75″ D2 blade with a sort of clipped, bull nose shape and a very tall primary grind.

The handle is stainless steel and incorporates the frame lock and a ball bearing system that makes the blade fire very smoothly via the integrated flipper. There is a lanyard loop built into the back spacer and a pocket clip set up for right side tip up carry.

Check out the BRAZA EDC Folder at Bastion.

Free Bic Sheaths at Blade Rigs

What do you do with a bazillion Kydex scraps? Well, if you are the good folks at Blade Rigs, you make them into slick Bic lighter sheaths and give them away. You can get a free Bic sheath with any order at Blade Rigs while supplies last.

This would be a great time to pick up some of the best sheaths around for defensive fixed blade knife carry.
