CRKT’s New Tactical Knife

The motto of CRKT's Forged by War program is, "Designed by Vets. Driven by Duty." Its aim is to deliver mission-ready tools designed by warriors. In addition, CRKT donates a portion of the profits to the designing vets charity of choice. The Tecpatl tactical fixed-blade push dagger is the latest release in the program. Designed by Michael R. Rodriguez of Fayetteville, North Carolina, it's the type of tool he wishes had existed while he was serving overseas as a member of the 7th Special Forces Group. The blade features a black powder-coat finish for corrosion resistance. The first finger hole at the base of the blade is perfectly sized for most digits, and the adjacent open hole makes for a rock-solid grip. The knife is secure in the closed-fist position, making it ideal for pushing or slashing. If a situation shifts, the low-profile hold allows you to grab your gun, or an assailant, without dropping or shifting the knife's position in the hand. The Kydex sheath is spring–loaded with a MOLLE-compatible gear clip so it's always exactly where you need it. SRP: $89.99. (
