DO NOT KNOW WHEN CHOOSING YOUR NEW KNIFE?
Let's look at a few basic parameters according to that you can choose your new partner.
The knife edge can be divided into:
- smooth - easy to grind, you can cut or cut practically anything with it
- serrated - grinds worse than a smooth blade, but it is better for cutting fabric or ropes
- combined - golden mean, combines both previous variants, universal use

This is a purely subjective matter. Some people are comfortable with solid and at the same time light craton or zytel handles, while others prefer a less durable rubberized one, that prevents the knife from slipping and possible injury when working in poor climatic conditions (rain, wet). The knives from our offer have handles ergonomically shaped to ensure perfect knife handling and a firm grip.
WHAT IS FULLTANG DESIGN?
The fulltang design means that the blade is extended to the handle of the knife and thus increasing its overall strength and improving handling. The knife is therefore practically impossible to break.
The length of the blade is also a very subjective parameter and it is up to each of you to consider. You need to decide what you will use the knife for - if you want to chop wood in the forest with it, a longer blade will be useful, but if you are going to prepare sandwiches for a campfire, the choice of a shorter blade is appropriate.
The length of the handle should be chosen according to the size of the palm and the expected use. If you will be doing more demanding work with the knife, it is advisable to have a larger handle, if you want to carry the knife secretly, it is advisable to choose a thin and short inconspicuous handle.
COLOR OF BLADE AND HANDLE
If you want to keep the style, it is advisable to choose the color of the knife to match the color of the rest of the gear, because it is important that you like the knife. Military knives are popular in coyote or olive color for camouflage, while survival knives are more in strong to luminous colors, so you can easily find the knife in nature, in case you forget it somewhere.
We recommend choosing the weight according to the way the knife is used. If you want to have a partner for everyday wear, for example in a belt case, we recommend a lighter knife. When it comes to knives for more demanding manual work, we recommend a heavier one, the weight difference is really noticeable when working.
NSN (National stock number)
The NSN is a 14-digit code on knives approved by all NATO members for military use. You are assured of the highest quality with such goods.
Knives from our range are usually delivered with a sheath in the package. The most important feature of the sheath is the carrying system, that military knives have mostly in a MOLLE binding, while civilian knives are worn on a belt. As for the sheath material, they are popular sheaths made of cut-resistant plastic materials ensuring safe transport of your knife. The sheaths of survival knives have usually various gadgets and pockets with strike-outs.
