KAPTKSIL: PTK Limited Edition Pacific Theater Knife, Silver

KA-BAR

HL Dalis is proud to announce the release of the limited edition Pacific Theater Knife. This recreation, manufactured by KA-BAR’s custom shop State & Union, was inspired by a newly discovered WWII-theater knife.

The knife, which belonged to HL Dalis' owner Jon Blumenfeld's father-in-law during World War II, was found in a tackle box over seven decades after the end of the war. Theater knives hold a special place in the pantheon of military knives due to their art-like designs and the stories they tell. 

Only 200 Pacific Theater Knives will be made. No two knives are identical, much like their theater-made wartime counterparts. There are two versions: models featuring a blued blade and models with an uncoated blade. Handle colors vary in each knife with core colors in coyote black and yellow and coyote olive drab and red. All 200 knives feature copper guards and come with a reproduction stapled American-made leather sheath manufactured to World War II specifications. Each knife is hand shaped and is comprised of a combination of G10 and leather washers.

G10 Handles
G10 Handles Formed in a sheet under high pressure by combining fiberglass and an epoxy resin binder. These handles are lightweight and shaped to ensure a solid grip.
Leather Sheath
Leather Sheath Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
1095 Carbon Steel
1095 Carbon Steel An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for its extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel (it will rust) and most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.
Semi-Custom
Semi-Custom 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.
