United Cutlery SOA Assault Knife
United Cutlery puts out an interesting assortment of products. Some are fantasy, some are curiosities and some are decent usable products. This fixed blade SOA (Special Operations Association) model is one of the latter. They are economically produced in China (of course) and have a decent quality of steel (AUS-6) and a great pattern of relief on the Micarta handles. We can market these at $38.95 which is a great price for a decent knife. They have a Kydex sheath with a belt clip. You can see them at www.knifecenter.com
Here is the more complete description from United Cutlery:
This S.O.A. Assault knife features a contoured premium Micarta handle which not only gives this knife a tactical appearance, but is also slip resistant and extremely easy to grip even while wet. The 4 3/4″ full-tang blade has been titanium-coated to reduce glare and prevent corrosion and then etched with the S.O.A. emblem and “Death Waits In The Dark.” The extended tang of the blade can be used as a pry bar in emergency situations. Each knife includes a custom-molded Kydex sheath with a high-pressure metal clip that has been laser-etched with the S.O.A. emblem and also offers pre-drilled lanyard holes. Because the sheath is custom-molded, it prevents the knife from falling from the sheath, even while clipped upside down on a shoulder strap or rifle sling. Blade Material: Ti-Coated AUS-6 Stainless. Handle Material: Beveled Micarta. Blade Length: 4 3/4″. Overall Length: 9 3/4″. Sheath: Molded Kydex with high-pressure clip.
Handcrafted in China.
