Chris Reeve Green Beret Combat Knife Fixed 5.5" S35VN Black Plain Blade, Micarta Handles, Black Nylon Sheath - GB5-1000
CRKGB55BLK: Black PVD Green Beret, 5.5"
Chris Reeve Knives
This knife is known to the U.S. Army Special Forces as "The Yarborough" and to everyone else as "The Green Beret Knife". It is a no-nonsense, hardworking tool. Made in Boise, Idaho the Green Beret Knife is a utility knife that, just like the men for whom it was designed, is efficient, tough and uncompromising.
Without the name "Yarborough" and non-serialized, the otherwise identical knife - The Green Beret Knife - is available from Chris Reeve Knives. The Green Beret Knife is offered with either a 7" or a 5.5" blade; the rest of the knife is identical.
The handle is made of extremely durable, textured and sandblasted black canvas Micarta. When the handle is wet, the canvas fibers bloom which increases grip. If the handle becomes dirty, it can be cleaned with a brush and a household cleaner like Soft Scrub, and a touch of WD-40 to bring back the original color.

Semi-Custom or Mid-Tech knives are knives produced by a process in which the designer has more direct--but not complete--involvement; parts of these knives may still have been made by others.
Durable, flexible, abrasion and mildew resistant, Nylon also is very strong
A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.
Micarta is a compressed layered composite sealed within a thermosetting plastic which creates a strong, attractive material that is impervious to water.
This product is USA born and raised.
