What makes a knife "tactical"? There are many schools of thought on this question. It can be certain finishes and materials for certain applications. Task specific designs. But one thought that really makes sense to me is the knife you have with you when things get ugly.
The very first one of these was made for a US Navy SEAL. I decided to put it into our standard designs after getting feedback from him.
Based loosely on the traditional Sgian Dubh this boot knife is sure to be a favorite. Ladder pattern Damascus from Chad Nichols and Maple Burl.
