RMJ Tactical Limited Edition OD Green Reaver Push Dagger 4" 80CRV2 Carbon Double Edge Blade, Dirty Olive G10 Handles, Kydex Sheath
RMJKRVGNOUT: Limited Edition Reaver Push Dagger, OD Green
Years ago when Ryan Johnson was making a special order knife for a SWAT team member, a good friend and resident critic John came by the shop to look the knife over. "The tip is too narrow and thin," he said. "It will break if the person using the knife tries to pry something open." Ryan told him that this knife was not meant to be used as a pry-bar, just for cutting.
John then said something that both defined the word "tactical" and, most importantly, changed Ryan's design paradigm forever: "The situations this person finds himself in should determine what this knife is used for. If he needs to cut something, it cuts. If he has to pry a door open, it's a pry-bar. These are high-energy situations where every second counts. You can't carry everything you would like to carry; the knife will have to be able to complete a multitude of tasks."
In a perfect world, a soldier or law enforcement officer would have ready access to all of the tools and weapons he ever needed, but that just isn't possible. It takes more than an aggressive look or a gray and black finish to make a fixed blade a tactical knife. Remember, knives meet the needs of the soldiers and frontiersman as both a tool and weapon in the battlefield conditions they encounter. In Ryan's view, a contemporary tactical fixed blade should be able to withstand all modern battlefield conditions — areas ranging from the Salt Lake City, Utah, Olympics, to the Jungles of South America, to the rugged mountains in Afghanistan. (RMJ Tactical knives have been carried in all three).
The Reaver is a long bladed push dagger that gives excellent transfer of force and possesses top-notch handle comfort. The blade is designed to rest between the middle and the ring finger, this aligns the blade to be centered to the arm when punching, providing the best transfer of force from the blade down the arm. The large handle provides firm contact with the palm of the hand to minimize impact shock. It measures 6.875" overall with a 4" 80CRV2 carbon steel blade wearing a OD green Cerakote finish. The best part of this knife though has to be the sheath. It's an RMJ Kydex sheath with two-way belt adapter, allowing for horizontal or vertical carry. The Reaver was designed by RMJ crew member Jonathan Carmack and was proudly made in the USA.
