Manufacturer: Gerber 22-41405
Gerber, with their full line of multi tools, lights, and blades, are at the forefront of the industry consistently producing the finest tools and blades for the past 70+ years. Still grounded in the same principles that first guided Joseph R. Gerber's "enterprise," Gerber is a company dedicated to making knives and tools that combine high quality materials and innovative designs that will stand up to a lifetime of use. There is a reason that their multi tools, lights, and blades can be found on the hips, in the pockets and packs of police officers, emt's, military units, and other first responders world wide... they work and work well.
Even a quick glance out of the corner of your eye will convince you that this is no ordinary tactical knife. You can tell by the dramatic, take-no-prisoners profile that the Kiowa-yes, its named after that attack helicopter-is a knife to be reckoned with. Owing to its 3" tanto blade in matte black. Its gnarly serrated section for sawing. And its handy lanyard hole for easy attachment.
The handle is aggressively sculpted of glass filled nylon, with skateboard tape inserts for extra control in tough scenarios. Finger positions are ideally configured for ergonomic efficiency and comfort in multiple defensive postures.
As hard-charging folders go, a guy can do a whole lot worse than the pocket clip Kiowa. Question is, why the devil would you accept less?
