Operators are a select breed of soldier. They demand the most of themselves and of the tools they choose to carry.
Whether you're being deployed to a foreign land, or you are needing a professional level tool stateside, the FE7™, FE9™ and FE9™ Trainer fixed blade knives are a force to be reckoned with.
Custom Knifemaker Jim Hammond designed, with Arcenio James Advincula's concepts, a knife series with "no bull" attitude. Having the right tool for the job, and the bonus of a trainer to help hone your skills is mission critical.
An "aggressive" drop-point blade shape features a razor-sharp, slight recurve bottom edge along with a sharpened leading top edge. Combine those with the false edge upper, hollow ground profile, very robust 0.25-inch thick full-tang—and it is lights out toughness.
The handle is purposefully shaped of black G10, complete with pronounced finger grooves and full blade guard. Grip position is slightly angled in relation to the blade for maximum energy transfer when in use.
And for the ultimate in versatile field carry, the sheath goes well beyond the extra mile to ensure you limitless carry options without having to make your own mods. Molded black nylon with glass fiber reinforcement halves are assembled to create a form fit "click in" cavity to contain the knife. A snap strap further secures the knife safely, even inverted. The sheath has been designed to accommodate Molle clip attachments, as well as having a leg strap and ample slots/grommets for lashing if warranted. It comes complete with all of the required hardware for belt or Molle attachment in either high or low positions.
To get the full benefit of these edged "tools", you are going to want to take advantage of working with the FE9 Trainer*. It is modeled after the FE9 in profile and size. The thermo plastic rubber (TPR) FE9 likeness allows you to go through full physical motions and body maneuvers safely, while still gaining the proper skill level and dexterity wielding a fixed blade fighting knife like this can require.
Bottom line, the FE fixed blade knife series is the real deal designed and built for your world, wherever you may end up today.
*Full length training video is available on the CRKT YouTube channel featuring Jim Hammond and Arcenio James Advincula explaining the concepts and fighting techniques this series of knives is specifically designed for (close quarter combat).
