Halbfreed Blades are pumping out the new tactical models this year and their latest release is the Tuhon Raptor - CCK-03.
This is a compact clearance knife designed for specialist military and law enforcement operators who need fast access to a versatile compact clearance tool.
Developed in collaboration with Special Operations Close Quarter Combat Instructor Jared Wihongi, the Tuhon Raptor was also conceived with Filipino Martial Arts practitioners in mind as the knife is perfect for hooking, trapping, slashing and thrusting outmaneuvers.
The Tuhon Raptor features a modified Talon point for piercing and is faceted with multiple razor-sharp cutting edges on its full tang blade.
With a live blade identifier at the three-quarter mark on the handle it is also easy to orientate the CCK-03 to its primary blade edge by feel alone.
The handle is a modified beveled 'ring-pull' design which makes it exceptionally fast and easy to draw and with a concave thumb recess at the top of the ring provides the user with a good positive grip. The thumb recess also aides when applying downward force.
Made from Austrian 6mm Bohler K110 (D2) tool steel with a low friction Teflon coating the CCK-03 is durable and hard wearing.
The Tuhon Raptor is completed with G10, torx screwed handle scales and comes with its own precision molded PALS/MOLLE compatible sheath.
Available in black, dark earth and ranger green colour options and also in a red 'training' model.
