The Magnus is now available for pre-order from Amtac Blades. It features a 5″ blade ground from 3/16″ thick CPM-20CV steel and comes in at 8 5/8″ long in overall length. Like the Northman before it, it features textured G-10 handle scales. If you like the Northman concept but want something bigger, this is it.
Amtac Blades states:
The Magnus is a full sized combative fixed blade knife specifically designed to be worn on your belt, other strong side.
This blade has been optimized to provide the correct balance between tip strength and thrusting ability (myself and friends that have been involved in the testing have stabbed the prototype of this blade through a lot of different test media).
To make the blade more versatile we kept the spine of the blade sharp so that you can strike the ferro rod with the spine of the blade instead of the edge.
The blade, firesheath, trainer, and storage sheath are included.
This is a prototype photo with imperfections. The standard Magnus will have steel type, serial number, and Amtac Blades Magnus engraved similar to the Amtac Northman.
The Magnus will ship in January, 2020.
