I have a couple of the non-reflective variations to the Combat #6 available (Left knife in the photo). The finish is soft and satin, and I think it will wear and age nicely.
A Combat knife needs to be big enough, but not too big. Strong, but not too thick. A cutter, but not to be babied. Natural to carry, natural to draw, natural to use. The new Combat #6 has elements borrowed from my very popular Combat #4, but further refined. The point is stronger, the handle just a little thinner while being a hair longer. Blade tip is flat ground while the cutting edge is a thinner hollow grind. Minor changes all, but at this level major improvements are all subtle.
I have used this new steel for a while now and I'm pleased with it's unique place in the spectrum of blade steels. All of the knives are heat treated here, ground with the same care as the most pricey exhibition-grade knife, and delivered in a leather sheath that is cut and sewn by me, twenty feet from where I am sitting.
I am confident that whether you need a solid daily carry knife, a dependable addition to your bug-out bag, or the best last-ditch weapon on your gear, the new Combat #6 will speak for itself what it is capable of.
You also have the choice of a black or chestnut sheath. (email me after ordering and let me know...)
Blade length is just over 5" with an overall length of 10.25"
