Grunt EOD: an Specialist Knife by DF Custom


The Story
In 2016 I was contacted by a member of an EOD Team (Explosive Ordinance Disposal). He wanted to use my Grunt as the basis for a custom knife that he and his teammates could use in their line of duty. With a few tweaks to shorten and widen the blade, the Grunt EOD was born. As I've said about the Grunt before, this model has seen use from Afghanistan to the Adirondacks, and is perfect comfortable in both places.

The Purpose
Military, hunting, all purpose hard use

The Details
Blade Steel: 01 Tool Steel
Blade Length: 3.5"
Blade Thickness: Various
Total Length: 8"
Handle: Customer's Choice (inquire about reduced pricing for paracord handled options)
Sheath: Customer's Choice of Leather or Kydex

This listing is for a custom knife. If you choose to purchase this listing, you have the option of selecting the materials I use to make it. The photos show versions of this model I've made in the past, to give you some ideas, but we're not limited to what's been done in the past.

Here's a quick explanation about shop sections:

Any knife listed in "Knives for Sale" is a completed knife that is ready to ship once the sheath preference has been indicated by the customer, and made by me. Customizations are NOT available on finished knives, and therefore shipping time is usually less than 2 weeks.

The listings in shop section "Custom Knife Options" are some of the knives that I've sold to others in the past. These knives can all be ordered as seen in one of the pictures, or used as a template for having your own custom knife made. Customers will be able to choose any handle material and sheath material, and may have a choice of blade steel.
