Description
DSARAD1BLK: Model 1 - Arad
Dustar
 
The Dustar Model 1 - Arad is the first-ever fixed-blade, heavy duty, all purpose utility/field/combat knife conceived, designed, tested, perfected and manufactured entirely in Israel.The knife was manufactured entirely by CNC technology.

Based on a classic design on the one hand and on extensive practical combat and outdoors experience on the other hand, this premium quality knife is made from the best materials and manufactured to the most demanding standards in the metal processing industry. Features a sharpened top edge.

The knife was designed by Alex Shamgar, a renowned Israeli custom knife designer and maker; and manufactured by Sherutay Erozia, an ISO 9001:2000 certified manufacturer of molds and dies since 1984.

The Blade

The 7" blade of this superb knife is made of D2 steel (RC 56-57 hardness), one of the toughest, best steels known to the tools industry.

The blade was subject to extreme durability tests, normally not expected during even a lifetime of service. These included hard blows against a D2 block, which was consequently deeply marked, but left no scratch on the blade.

The Handle

The handle of the Dustar Model 1 - Arad is made of fiberglass reinforced nylon - the apex of strength, durability, and practicality.

The handle is attached the blade by two hardened steel pins that would not loosen even under the most demanding conditions.
