If you're in the Military or Law Enforcement; if you ride horses or motorcycles; live on a ranch or a farm - or if the encroaching threats of the urban jungle are simply getting too near for comfort - then the Peace Makers are for you!

Unlike many fixed blade knives the Peace Makers can be carried very discreetly. Clipped to the top of your boot and covered by your pant leg they're rendered virtually invisible.

Boot carry is incredibly comfortable (as the boot top carries the weight and suspends the knife so it doesn't rub, gouge, or irritate your body), furthermore, your knife is always easily accessible when you need it.

Astoundingly light and thin - the largest model, with it's 5 1/2" blade weighs a paltry 4.7 ounces and measures less than 1/2 inch at its thickest point! That's substantially thinner then many of the alleged "extreme duty" tactical knives available today!

The Peace Maker's "Scandi" ground blade bevel makes them very easy to resharpen, while the unique compound ground clip point -provides a very stiff, distal tapered point capable of piercing thick targets without compromising precious cutting power.

The Peace Makers offer a versatile spectrum of uses - utility, hunting, fishing, and self-defense - so it's fitting that they also have a versatile grip.

They feature a thin rectangular handle with subtle contouring and pronounced palm swell. A double quillon guard protects your precious fingers, while a thumb trough in the butt further enhances the knife's versatility by facilitating a comfortable and robust reverse grip.

It's expertly designed handles are deeply textured with a course-stippling pattern inspired by Robbie Barkman's famous Glock grip reductions which provide the leverage you need to take full advantage of it's astounding cutting and piercing power!

Our ambidextrous Secure-Ex™ sheaths are cut and stab resistant and impervious to the elements.

So unlike sheaths made from leather or fabric, they'll never rot, crack, mildew, or lose their shape. Additionally, they're fitted with a custom-made, stainless steel belt clip that will stay put and keep the sheath firmly attached to your boot or belt when your knife is drawn.

Tom H's review from Nov. 2019 really says it all. This knife is greater than the sum of its parts. I can see why people don't understand this knife, because it is a mishmash of design ideas. It's got the Mora 2000/Kansbol compound Scandi grind with the clip point of a Bowie. There's the double guard from a dagger, and throw in a curved butt from a saber. The sheath is unorthodox, too. It's got these long flaps that are meant to be comfortably worn against your body, but they also hide part of the handle. Nonetheless, THE PACKAGE WORKS. The sheath is light and can be easily concealed. You can insert the knife with the edge facing either way, so you can draw with hammer or reverse grip. The strong clip lets you wear the knife without a belt. It easily clips onto your pant waist, pocket, backpack, you name it. The knife is also light enough that you can wear it and forget it is there. I have no problem drawing the knife with two fingers, and you can trim excess sheath to your liking. The spine is 2.75 mm, which some people consider thin, but there is a lot of steel because it's a Scandi grind. Modest thickness also means this knife will do well at food prep. At 5.5", this blade has reach, and is a surprisingly good chopper. Like all Scandis, the PMII is a pro at carving and making feather sticks. The spine is nice and square for striking fire steel, and the edge is razor sharp. 4116 Krupp, the blade material, is a low-end stainless, but I don't need great edge retention. As long as the knife is easy to sharpen and able to take a wicked edge, I'm happy. I pried with the tip and it held up, which is reassuring even though it's rare when one actually needs to pry with a knife. The handle is hard rubber, molded over the full tang. Even though it is only 0.55" thick, the handle is comfortable. So, the PMII does everything you want from a knife this size. Factor in the price, and this is a no brainer.

Too, bad they quit making the original Peacemaker. Not much resemblance to P II + III. I’d hurry up and buy a Peacemaker II + III. When they discontinue these, and come out with Peacemaker IV, it’ll probably just be a neck knife, or a nail file. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Excellent knife design for a value price. Cold Steel says their 4116 stainless steel is superior to the 440’s, but I have found it to be about similar to 440B. Nice thin tip with blade-depth swedging up front for detail work; and a strong, almost scandi grind toward the handle for power cutting, bushcrafting, and splitting kindling, etc. Very, versatile blade. Great grip. The polypro handle is comfortable, grippy, controllable, and secure. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> The sheath has got a few problems, but for the price, I’m not going to deduct a star. 1). The knife rattles in the sheath (See: Kershaw Camp 10 Tan review for possible solution). 2). No options for changing belt retention (Tek-Lok, belt loop, horizontal carry straps, etc.). 3.) There is nowhere on sheath to push w/thumb when drawing knife from sheath, as is the proper method with a thermoplastic sheath. You either have to jerk it out of the sheath, or slide your thumb inside the front of the sheath while drawing the knife, to pry it out. Either way, it is kinda loud coming out of the sheath. Another option: cut off the top part of thermoplastic sheath, slather sheath in contact cement, wrap in leather, and stitch the trailing edge. Add/include a retention strap/snap on the leather belt loop at top. Easy project if you have some sheath making experience, or, great first time leather project. You end up with a nice traditional looking old-school sheath with a modern safe/secure thermoplastic liner. Or, you can just purchase a nice leather basketweave sheath from Part #: SH210. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> This is a fine all around, do-all utility knife. It can field dress game, SD/tac, lite camp/trail/bushcraft, kitchen, and shop/garage/yard knife that’s easy on the budget. Use the Peace, Luke.
