RMJ Tactical Nomad Fixed Blade Knife 4" 52100 Carbon Steel, Black G10 Handles, Kydex Sheath
RMJNMBKiu: Nomad Fixed Blade, Black
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 a 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 Nomad is hunting style fixed blade that excels in the outdoors, it's the perfect knife on your belt and around camp. The drop edge style blade features plenty of belly for skinning and you'll find it extremely practical for all of your cutting chores. The knife is made from 52100 carbon steel and has a tungsten Cerakote finish for corrosion resistance, making it a durable and rugged companion. The beveled and contoured G10 grips feature diagonal texturing for a not too aggressive but secure grip. The Nomad includes a molded Kydex scabbard with pull the dot snap loops. We have handle scales available in Black, Dirty Olive, and Hyena Brown.
