A Murder is the proper terminology for a group of crows. Our new tactical gladius, the Murder, is the flagship for our Corvidae series of edged weapons. The intent of this short sword design is to provide a dependable backup weapon for those who might need to incapacitate antagonists of all shapes and sizes.

.25″ thick 1095 high carbon steel. Austempered for maximum toughness; 52-54 hRc. on the edges. Standard finish is NIC Cerakote in a standard Graphite black/Socom blue dual tone camouflage to resemble the coloring of crows and ravens. Solid color or custom camo finishes are also available.

The standard micarta handle may be textured or left smooth according to the preference of its owner. Extra handle sets (finished or unfinished) can be purchased separately for end user customization and can be changed out with a 3/32″ hex key.

An ambidextrous, Molle compatible kydex sheath is included, and may be ordered in Black, Green or Tan. Kydex can be painted, so color and camouflage options are endless.
