Introducing the production version of Darrel Ralph’s custom Gun Hammer folding knife, the Torpedo. This knife is an absolute tank, featuring a lightning fast assisted-opening mechanism and a wicked 3-1/2″ S30V bowie style blade. The handle is made from thick 3D-machined aluminum and features a .09″ thick titanium liner lock. It is an overbuilt knife that will stand up to torture, hard use, and anything else you can throw at it. A superb design using top quality materials, the Torpedo makes an excellent combat, tactical, or camp knife and we will be receiving additional variations of this knife soon. You can see them at www.knifecenter.com.
Our HTM Gun Hammer knives are 100% USA Made tactical folders with true custom style that pack plenty of form, and especially function. Designed by Darrel Ralph, the HTM Gun Hammer mid tech knife, is available in two blade styles, the radically different Radian Re-Curve blade style boasts an extremely aggressive, modern style, while our more traditional style blade draws inspiration from a classic Bowie knife blade shape. Either choice is EDC ready for self-defense, law enforcement officers, police & military tactical applications, in addition to being an outstanding knife for general utility & every day carry. All variations lock open with a .09″ thick titanium lock bar, and we offer the choice between manual flipper opening, and our lightning fast SAO spring assisted open mechanism (faster than most switchblades without the legal hassles).
Variations are available in either a handsome non-glare finish, or our equally good-looking DLC coating which further armors the blade against extreme wear and scuffs. We use durable American Made Crucible CPM S30V blade steel on all of our HTM Gun Hammer knives, while the handles are aircraft aluminum protected by a durable Military “Type III” hard coating. We’ve outfitted the handles on all models with our 3D Machined ETAC grip pattern which gives you an absolute grip under even the most challenging conditions. No matter what your preferred blade style, coating and opening preference may be (Manual Flipper, or the DDR – SAO – spring assisted opener) we’re certain you’ll find our Darrel Ralph designed HTM Gun Hammer tactical folding knives are a perfect fit.
