Every once in a while at the Knifecenter, we are lucky enough to add a new brand to our family. SCAR Blades, a company started by two brothers and based in Idaho Falls, Idaho, produces custom hand-built blades for the outdoors, law enforcement, and military communities.
Most SCAR knives are made from 1095 high-carbon steel, prized worldwide for its sharpness and edge retention. Furthermore, they are heat treated only along the sharpened edge, allowing the “softer” steel of the spine to absorb impacts and reduce fatigue. Most SCAR blades offer full-tang construction and phenolic handles, and feature Kydex sheaths custom-fitted to each knife. Backed by a lifetime warranty, these are rugged knives, designed for the toughest tasks around. Made in the USA. Check out the new additions at www.knifecenter.com!
More from SCAR Blades:
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.
