Combat knives were designed as weapons in history. The blade usually was thin and double-edged. Sharp blade was able to penetrate into the opponent's body and cause him fatal stab or cut wound. French and Italian military daggers of the 14th century were the first to introduce the acutely-tapered, sharply-pointed and double-edged blade as a response to improvements made in armour design and the need to exploit weaknesses in armour protection.

Modern combat knives (like survival knives) are designed as utility tools because close combat make no sense in modern waging of war. They usually have wide blades and one or two edges.

Combat knives often have also other functions. Cutting of fibrous material is enabled by wavy edge. Cutting of wood or sheet is enabled by saw edge.

The combat knife handle may be hollow and other utility tools can be there: a needle, thread, pencil, tweezers, fishing line, scalpel, bottle and tin opener, rubber string into a catapult. Neck knives, Tanto knives, military knives, tactical knives, Bowie knives, Kukri knives, combat knives classical, stiletto knives and outdoor axes can be found among our combat knives.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

What is the difference between industrially rolled and hand-forged blades?

In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
