US RETAIL: $269.00

A full size fighting folder built to the durability requirements of full-on, Spec-Ops combat! If you need a utility folder, this is not the knife for you. The StratoFighters feature Dark Op's proprietary RaptorLok™, a self cleansing double talon locking system that uses the entire length of the knife to support the opened blade. Unlike modern unproven and complicated locking systems, this basic principles of this design have been tested for over fifty years. Dark Ops' secondary CrisisCross™ cross-bolt locking system serves the function of preventing the knife from being closed while open. The pommel end of the knife offers an integrated emergency window breaker and paracord safety tethering hole. The scales are made of T6160 aircraft grade hardened aluminum, not porous materials that cannot be decontaminated from bodily fluids or chemical munitions. Carved into the sides of the scales are lateral control grooves that provide indexing points in darkness as well as additional control without increasing the width of the handle. Deep finger grooves orient the knife in the hand and add a third more grip area. Quartz impregnated inserts provide extreme circumstances grip enhancement and are replaceable should STRATOFIGHTER SPEAR decontamination be required. The Pocket clip is reversible for true ambidextrous tip up carry. The finish on the blade is Carbon Black Titanium CarboNitride (TiCN) vacuum deposited finish and is designed to shed the micro-fine airborne sand of Middle-eastern deserts. The Blade steel is made from Dark Ops proprietary CTV2 steel, an exotic and expensive Hybrid of Chromium, Cobalt, Tungsten, Vanadium, Molybdenum, in an alloy of surgical grade stainless steel. Thorough hardened to 58 HRC Rockwell with a secondary cryogenic cutting edge hardening, it is a steel that is basically indestructible! A full quarter inch thick, it is one of the heaviest production blades in existence today.

THE BLACK RAVENTM

sheath, handle colors

TACTICAL FIXED-BLADE FIGHTER A knife designed in Honor of the "Ravens", those legendary airmen who went into Laos in the late sixties to take the fight to the enemy in their own back yard! They flew missions into communist territory without the acknowledgement of their government, without the knowledge of their families and with no recognition for a job heroically done. The Black Raven is all Dark Ops, with CTV2 steel and a brutally strong tanto point design. Features a similar handle to the Basal Shadow, but is optimized for airborne crews who need a blade strong enough to cut through aluminum, sharp enough to smash through canopies and small enough to fit the body in cramped cockpits. 100% made in America! Available in Carbon Black Titanium CarboNitride (TiCN) vacuum deposited finish. Sheaths adaptable for belt, vest, thigh, calf and outpack carry!

THE PAUL BASAL "SHADOW"TM NAVY SEAL COMBAT FIXED-BLADE FIGHTER

US RETAIL: $219.00

Bearing the namesake and call sign of legendary Navy SEAL Paul Basal, this knife is the new choice of operational warriors throughout the globe!

BarbSnap™ cutter allows for rapid notching and snapping of interdiction wires in entry ops. An abbreviated top-hilt/bottle opener works with a new serrated palmstop, allowing for a reverse grip with an astonishing six linear inches of surface area! The Shadow features a corrosion resistant finish designed to take the saltwater immersion often involved in SEAL operations. The handle is made of a low-durometer, high tensile aramid composite that is impervious to everything from aviation fuel to Al Qaeda body fluids. The handle is thinner and wider for greater mechanical advantage with deep finger grooves orienting the blade axis of the knife in the hand and dramatically increasing effective grip surface. A prominent WhipLok™ finger notch provides an axis point for hacking as well as 200 degrees of grip area, ideal with wet hands or when using gloves. The handles are field replaceable to blend with woodland, desert or black camo schemes. Quartz impregnated inserts provide extreme circumstances grip enhancement and are replaceable should decontamination be required. The Basal Shadow utilizes the same CTV2 Blade Steel and CryoHardening techniques as the StratoFighter™ Folders! The hilts do not protrude forward effectively reducing the length of the blade. Hollow grinding lends to greater cutting and slashing effectiveness. Deep blood grooves keep the weight of the full .250 inch thick blade properly balanced in the hand.

BACK-UP COVERT NECK/FOREARM/ANKLE KNIFE Don't let the space age curves fool you, this is one of the most ergonomically form fitting "blades of last resort" you will ever handle. Usable in the smallest and largest hands, and possibly the only neck knife in the world deployable in the reverse grip. Used properly it can generate the last earthly sensation a terrorist feels on a quick trip to the hereafter. A PanicPortTM through-hole in the tail of the integrated tang allows positive sheath removal even with 85% of the knife concealed in the ankle and forearm modes. A deep index finger notch provides secure grip and astonishing leverage, and multiple deep finger grooves allow for the secure positioning of the middle, ring and pinky fingers. The Knife is skeletonized for weight reduction, but has small enough cutouts to not trap fingers under duress. The Throughhole in the handle allows for a positive finger through control for secure grip when hands are cold and prevents the knife from being taken away in defensive moves. Built of Dark Ops legendary CTV2 Steel, but with a fractionally higher stainless content and treated with a Titanium Carbonitride coating, the knife is impervious to body sweat
