Bad Blood Knives
Wicked thick stainless steel blades, contoured G10 handles, Kydex sheaths, functional blade shapes - what's not to like about the Bad Blood Fixed Blade Knives? Produced by Hallmark Cutlery and designed by custom knifemaker Sean Kendrick, Bad Blood is a new brand looking to find a niche in the tactical combat knife market. The quality is definitely there on these knives with excellent quality control coming from China. Their stout blades, excellent designs, good sheaths, and superb fit and finish make these knives serious contenders for your duty gear considerations. Best of all, the price point for these Bad Blood knives makes them, hands down, some of the best bangs-for-the-buck on the market today.

You Decide
Don't lets this comment discourage you, however, make note of what you're looking for exactly. As read from the previous review below me, comment mentions it's a good "CQB" knife. I will say that the blade is sharp as ****, because I gave myself an awesome cut while trying to get the blade back in the sheath. That's another note, the sheath needs some breaking into because the knife needs to expand the hold and get a good groove, but there are no shortcuts around it; there is a precise way of putting the knife back in the sheath which makes knocks the sheath concept into a CON. Also, the sheath is only right-handed friendly..because of the way the sheath and belt-clip work (along with the wholes pressed into the sheath), there is no way of changing the position of the sheath which puts that into the CON section. The handle is okay, but it would be better as a rough G10 handle so water can bead through and it will keep traction with the grip. Another reason for not being a CQB tool it that the blade point is not made for thrusting, which make the knife more of a miniature cleaver than a "weapon" if that's what you military/law enforcement personnel are going for; the blade is strictly good for slicing..but not like a machete..just simple tasks. Needless to say any knife is a good 3rd extension weapon compared to none. However, the weight is good in hand, and the belt clip (although being right-hand user friendly [only]) can be clipped into your boot and made into a boot-knife carry as well. It's a good fashion knife and does the work you would need for survival or whatever. It is also a fairly priced fixed blade..but either buy the knife and find out for yourself or wait for more reviews. I like it for what it is, but there are always others out there. Hopefully this review has helped.

Cons: None
Close Quarter Combat Blade
As an owner of the "Raiju" tanto, I am amazed at the consistant quality of the Bad Blood line-up of knives! One look at the "Dreadnaught" and you can tell this blade means all business. The entire weapon system - i.e.; knife and sheath are manufactured as if they are custom. Love it! Any purchaser of this knife will not be disappointed! Money well spent! **HIGHLY RECOMMEND!**
