SCAR Blades
 
SCAR Blades Scorpion Gray. 7 3/4" overall. 3" gray finish blade. Full tang. Black handle. Black sheath. Weight: 7 oz.

A Scorpion is an intimidating hunter and attacker because it knows it has something to back it up, it's stinger! You could have this same back up with your own stinger. The scorpion from SCAR Blades has an angled pry bar and glass breaker tool at the end of the handle, making this knife a weapon and functioning tool from end to end.

SCAR Blades are custom hand built knives produced in the U.S.A. They are designed to be used as rugged tools to assist military, law enforcement, and avid outdoorsmen to survive in the field, even in the most harsh conditions. Most SCAR Blades knives are full tang and are made from 3/16" thick 1095 high carbon alloy, which is heat treated for hardness only along the sharpened edge - creating a RC hardness of 58, while leaving the spine of the blade softer to absorb the stresses of high impact chopping. Blades have a powder coated finish and come with a non-slip phenolic handle to ensure a sure grip. Sheaths are individually made using Kydex, which is tightly formed around each individual knife for a secure fit. The sheaths are equipped with either a rotating belt loop allowing the sheath to swivel 360 degrees, moving with the user or a stationary loop for added strength and security. Multi-attachment holes are located around the sheath, to allow the knife to be adjusted and placed anywhere the user requires.
1095 Carbon Steel
1095 Carbon Steel
An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for it's extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel, most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.
Kydex Sheath
Kydex Sheath
Waterproof, scratch resistant, and low friction. It will hold its shape and makes a great alternative to leather.

High Quality
Excellent quality knife and sheath. Great steel, strong tip, nice pry/screwdriver/pressure point device, good jimping, thick kydex. Belt attachment and knife retention will need modification before it can be worn IWB or can be effectively be drawn with either hand (which is really the idea behind such an angled design). However, If you wish to wear this outside the waistband and only need a strong side draw, then it's perfect as is.

I'm stung
This design, as Ka-Bar discovered with its TDI line, is superb for use as an ambidextrous weapon retention blade (or as a weapon in its own right). The 1095 steel, the durable finish, the micarta scales, the jimping, and the pry/pressure-point tip make this the best in class. I also like supporting a growing, American knife company. My criticisms mainly concern the sheath. It's actually too good, by which I mean that it goes up over part of the micarta scales and has very strong retention. It also has a belt loop that will fit even over a large duty belt, and the kydex itself is quite thick and strong. The problem is that to be practical, I will need to cut the sheath off lower down and reshape it to use the choil (rather than one of the screws in the scales) as the retention point. This should provide quite adequate retention, without requiring a Navy SEAL in order to extract it. Also, the bulky belt loop will be replaced with an IWB snap loop. It will then draw smoothly with either hand and stick out less. While the micarta is strong and classy (it's even laser engraved), it's also somewhat bulky and slick. Since blood is slick as snot--and this ain't no letter opener--I'll probably remove the scales and wrap with paracord for a slimmer and more secure grip. Of course, one could also just file grooves into the stock scales. Depending on where and why you carry this knife, the extreme retention, large belt loop, and relatively smooth handle may or may not be a problem. But, everything about this knife is quality. Just because I have to make modifications doesn't mean I wouldn't buy again.
