Description

The Chris Reeve Professional Soldier is a quick access, no-nonsense backup fixed blade tool. It was created at the request of professionalsoldiers.com, a forum for active duty and retired Special Forces soldiers. It's easy to attach to a MOLLE vest, tucked into a cargo pocket or hung around the neck securely and safely.

The Professional Soldier Tanto in Flat Dark Earth is brand new directly from Chris Reeve Knives, USA.

The Blade: The American tanto-style is all about straight penetration. Its hollow ground premium CPM S35VN steel comes shaving sharp with a CRK polished edge and slight upper swedge to reinforce the tip. Nearly 3.5 inches to work with, perfect for every day slicing, dicing and piercing chores around camp. It has a rounded spine to the swedge plus a humped thumb ramp equipped with just over half an inch of jimping for control. You'd be hard pressed to find a more capable tool that will hold an edge and re-sharpen relatively easily in the field. 

The Handle: Coming in at almost 3.75 inches will be plenty for most, but the attached lanyard can be wrapped to extend the grip. Jimping near the back third finger groove is welcomed and should accommodate even a gloved hand. The cutout or skeletonization reduces the overall weight and allows for personal paracord wrapping or other aftermarket handle scales. The grip is comfortable in the forward or reverse position and the end comes to a rounded, blunt point knocker.

This version has received a Flat Dark Earth PVD coating finish for extreme durability and protection of the steel. It was designed in collaboration with famous designer/maker Bill Harsey.

It ships snugly in a Universal Kydex sheath by Blade Tech.
