Hardwired Tactical Shooting (HiTS) Knife
These will begin shipping Nov 27th and I expect all knives shipped by Dec 1st. You will receive a tracking email when your knife has shipped.
The HiTS knife is a collaborative effort between Joe Watson and Darryl Bolke of Hardwired Tactical Shooting.
-PSF-27 steel with Paul Bos heat treatment, stonewash finish
-7.25" OAL 3.5" blade
-V ground 3/16" thick blade with fully rounded spine. These have thicker edge platforms and a more obtuse edge angle than the pieces I typically make. There is no free lunch in knife design- While not as good for fine cutting tasks, the edge is tougher.
- Handle is nylon cord wrapped cured with fiberglass resin. This handle provides fantastic traction without being abrasive towards clothing or equipment. It is also extremely durable and fully protects the tang underneath.
-The handle allows use of the four major grips as taught in the HiTS curriculum, while the deep finger groove also secures the hand in place, even while wearing gloves. It also makes it easy for the user to identify where the edge is located, without looking.
The HiTS knife is provided with a custom formed boltaron sheath + IWB clip that is compatible with a number of other belt attachments including IWB soft loops, MOLLE locks, large teklocks (not included). Sheath is cut to allow a full grip on the knife during the draw.
