News from Joe Watson Knives

Joe Watson Knives was busy at Blade Show. The knife maker used the time to iron out the details of two very interesting collaborations.

HiTS Karambit

The HiTS Karambit, a collaboration with Darryl Bolke of Hardwired Tactical Shooting, is the first karambit that Joe Watson Knives will offer. Joe and Darryl (who happens to be the “DB” that Strider fans will surely be familiar with) already have another successful collaboration under their belts in the original HiTS Knife. The new HiTS Karambit is designed to be functional for both novices with basic targeting and striking training and for seasoned users who can push the design to its limits

The new knife has been heavily influenced by Steve Tarani in design and use. Tarani’s Aluminum Control Device makes a great training version for this knife.

Many of you have already seen the pushdagger that was mentioned on these pages several months ago. At the time of publication, Joe told me he was seeking the input of Craig Douglas (AKA Southnarc). That has now been made official. Douglas is a gifted trainer and has designed several successful self-defense oriented knives himself. He knows how to make push knives work. With Joe Watson’s design and Craig Douglas’ input, this knife will definitely be on point.

Stealth – New from Joe Watson Knives and Hardwired Tactical Shooting

The HiTS knife, a collaboration between Joe Watson Knives and Darryle Bolke of Hardwired Tactical Shooting, has been a run away success. It will be a tough act to follow but they are going to try with the “Stealth”.

The Stealth is a fairly versatile design that accommodates a number of techniques. It is basically a double edged American tanto shaped blade. The handle is finished with Joe’s excellent epoxy soaked cord wrap and features a deep finger groove for retention and indexing. By sharpening the straight spine of the tanto Joe and Darryle have created a knife that adapts quickly to edge in or edge out techniques – so much so that, at a glance, it is a dead ringer for a typical pikal knife.

The Stealth will be available soon. Check out Joe Watson Knives.
