Grab a hold of Dark Ops Knife and you will see what you have been missing this whole time.
Bearing the namesake and call sign of legendary Navy SEAL Paul Basal, this knife is the new choice of operational warriors throughout the globe! Designed by Basal with the Dark Ops design chief, it features all the critical items for a Modern Spec-Ops knife. The Shadow offers an extended blade length for penetrating Comm-bloc frag vests with an accelerated spear point tip and sharpened fore tip for maximum penetration. The top edge features a bone breaker and a radical, self-cleaning BlastRip saw for carving survival notches in spears and anchoring notches for detonation cord.
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. 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 .25" thick blade properly balanced in the hand. The black Titanium CarboNitride (TiCN) vacuum deposited finish is designed to shed the micro-fine airborne sand of Middle-Eastern deserts.
