The Corvid is inspired by the Smatchet style combat knife that was used by the OSS and Special Air Service soldiers in Great Britain during WW2. Smatchets were made in relatively small numbers when compared with the earlier 1914 Bolo, which was similar, but only single edged.
The Corvid is available with either a “Bone Breaker” rounded spine, or fully sharpened double edges for more experienced folks. This blade may be used effectively for utilitarian and combat purposes, and can serve well as the big knife in any kit.
- Blade details: 10.25″ Long, 1/4″ thick, symmetrical flat grind. False edge is standard with a fine, smooth spine to serve as an impact surface.
- Overall Length: 17.25″
- Weight: 1.6 lbs
- Blade: 1095 steel, Austempered to 52 hRc, Cerakoted for corrosion resistance
- Handle: Hand made removable Micarta Handles (CNC textured handles may be available in the future as production quantities increase)
