Kilo Elite: a Custom Fixed Blade Survival Knife


The Story
I was contacted in 2014 by a retired US Navy SEAL who needed a knife for his personal security company to use on duty. They needed a more durable knife that could keep an edge after chopping, prying, and slicing. This is the knife we designed together to fill that need. After going through rigorous testing, this knife has proved that it's ready for anything.

The Purpose
Survival, military, all purpose hard use

Blade Steel: 5160 Spring Steel
Blade Length: 5.5"
Total Length: 10.5"
Blade Thickness: 5/32"
Handle Material: Black/Brown Canvas Micarta
Sheath: Customers Choice of Kydex or Leather

This listing is for the exact knife shown in the picture. No additional customizations are available, except your choice of sheath material.

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.
