Zulu Bravo Kydex has a brand new website to show off and some changes to their popular (and affordable) Sharpfinger Pikal knives. The new site replaces the simple splash page that they used to have at their web address. It displays several of their kydex sheath offerings and allows users to pre-order custom made items including the Sharpfinger Pikal.
There are very few pikal knives available on the production knife market and customs tend to cost quite a bit. Zulu Bravo has found away around this by starting with a very affordable Schrade Sharpfinger and fine tuning it into a custom pikal knife.
They complete the following work:
– Remove handles
– Reshape tip
– Grind spine
– Acid etch
– Sharpen both edges
– Wrap handle in your choice of color combo
– Seal cord wrap with resin
– Build and fit new custom sheath with your choice of soft loop or overhook
They just announced that the design will be further improved with a darker acid wash and a tighter, more hand filling handle wrap. Zulu Bravo also offers a training drone version of the knife.
The Sharpfinger Pikal sells for $140 and is available to pre-order now. When you consider the level of custom work involved and the fact that these knives ship with an excellent sheath, this appears to be a great price on a pikal that you might actually carry.
