basic field knife
The Basic Field Knife is designed for maximum use and minimum drag. Integral, cnc machined grips fully enclose the tang – except at the butt, where it forms a hammer – allowing for low weight without compromising strength. The grips are secured with six M4 stainless screws and threaded inserts through the tang. A 6mm lanyard hole is provided. Whether you’re looking for a general outdoor fixed blade or a reliable piece of military equipment, this flat-ground blade will get the job done.
Every Basic Field Knife now comes complete with a Spec-ops Combat Master Mini sheath in your choice of Black or Coyote Cordura.
The Spec-ops Combat Master series sets the standard for tactical sheaths. Spec-ops designed this smaller version with my Basic Field Knife in mind, incorporating the same features found on all Combat Master Sheaths.

The Basic Field Knife looks a lot heavier than it is. In reality, this is a lightweight, fast handling blade that won't drag you down in the field.
I've done these with grips machined from several different types of composite plastic. Shown here is a Basic Field Knife with black and white laminated Melamine.
Every Basic Field Knife has a circular pattern machined into the grips to reduce slippage and help the user orient the knife in the hand.
The Spec-ops Combat Master Mini was designed with the Basic Field Knife in mind. It's the perfect tactical sheath for this knife, offering a variety of carry options on the belt, modular load system or pack.
Spec-ops "Split-Loop" allows for easy attachment to belts of many widths while preventing the knife and sheath from shifting position unexpectedly on your belt.
Desert Tan Micarta is another good choice for the grips on the Basic Field Knife.
The grips on the Basic Field Knife are so designed that they completely enclose the tang...
... except at the butt, where the tang protrudes just enough to reveal an excellent surface for hammering.
