Words From The Designer, Mr. DuBetz:
"When I began designing this latest series of tactical knives I wanted to address several aspects that knife manufacturers don't typically tackle, even by the "top of the line" manufacturers. The first aspect was the sheath. I wanted it to be 100% universal in mounting capability, and we achieved that. No matter how the user wishes to carry or tote these knives it's covered, there is no limit to the way they can be mounted (or transported). In addition to the mounting we chose a heavyweight canvas covering allowing the user to abuse it. What makes this covering so popular (with our line) is that users don't have to worry about it. Unlike plastic or Kydex sheaths, our canvas won't "break" in sub-zero temperature when tossed about. Being that the sheaths are standard Military olive drab these knives also make great knives for Military personnel.

The next area to tackle was the knife design. I insisted that they be extreme hardened to a 56/58 HRC and removable for easier sharpening. I don't want to point fingers but there are a couple of "major" manufacturers who only harden to 46/48 HRC. I chose an oval shaped hand grip that features a diamond pattern sure-grip with an oval shape that fits the hand well. The handle itself is nearly indestructible.
From start to finish this series took nearly 21 months. I also designed the box that the knives come in and every promotional ad produced for this series, no other designer has accomplished this. The end result is a higher end tactical knife that anyone can afford. Some have mentioned that they do not like the white "Mustang" on the handle. We suggest taping the knife off and picking up some Testors matte (or flat) black paint to cover it up."
