Halfbreed Blades have kicked off the new year with the release of their MIK-02 model.
This Close Quarter Battle Medium Infantry Knife is a dedicated infantry knife designed to be worn on the belt so that it's accessible and at the ready at all times.
As fits its role, the MIK-02 is a tough, one piece full tang fixed blade made from Austrian 6.5mm Bohler K110 (D2) tool steel which finishes with a crusher pommel.
The partially serrated blade features a modified Tanto style point optimising the MIK-02 for piercing, prying, and slicing.
To keep the user safe from the razor sharp blade the MIK-02 incorporates an over-sized handguard which together with the jimping at key points along the tang enhances the knife's handling and precise control, especially when applying downward pressure.
Clad in ergonomically contoured US made G10 handle scales the MIK-02 aims to provide maximum grip and control with non-gloved hands.
The MIK-02 is a highly utilitarian knife designed to perform the multiples of roles required by an infantry knife including striking, hammering and crushing as well as slicing, sawing, prying and piercing.
Teflon coated for low friction and durability and available in Black, Dark Earth and Olive Drab.
