"The Attleboro"is designed to commemorate the ultimate sacrifice made by Army Special Forces MSG William B. Hunt and to honor all the military members involved in Operation Attleboro during the Vietnam War.
Much thought and attention to details went into this project to create the best knife and tool possible. The new Attleboro Knife is a 100% American made tactical military-use tool. It combines top quality manufacturing and unique design features.
The steel is cutting edge CPM S35VN at a lighter .150” thick design to reduce weight and bulk for comfort when carrying. Cryogenically treated during heat treating, the knife is 55-57Rc to maintain flexibility and edge retention for a wide variety of user needs. The butt of the knife features a beveled glass breaker to aide those needing to break glass and to score and break through places that use polycarbonate for safety windows.
The spine contains 1.5 inch of jimping to maximize grip with or without gloves for best control. The drop point blade supported by its aggressive styling swedge is a perfect combination to its CNC machined hollow grind. The uniquely angled serrations located on the right side of the blade help reduce snagging when using to tear through items such as rope or webbing.
The black phenolic laminated handle is ergonomically designed to accommodate large and small hands and have a CNC machined texture to maximize grip in wet and dry applications. The Attleboro is finished with a beautiful Cerakote finish and a hair shaving sharp edge.
