RMJUCAPBLK: UCAP Up Close and Personal Fixed Blade, Exclusive Black/Orange G10
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 UCAP is a mid-sized fixed blade that is geared for everyday carry. The knife was created with a defensive purpose in mind, but is also well equipped for any and all cutting chores where a knife is called for. From first responder situations, outdoors activities, and just about anything else you can throw at it, this knife will perform. It's a looker too, look at those classic lines and that belly!
The UCAP has a bowie-style clip point blade made from Nitro-V Stainless steel with a Rockwell hardness of 58-60. The knife features a 4.25" blade that has a tungsten Cerakote finish for corrosion resistance and durability.
Weighing in at just five ounces, the knife is deceptively light, yet can hold its own in both categories of everyday carry as well as heavy use tactical knife. Offering a full tang and tubed rivet handle construction, this is one tough little knife!
The beveled and contoured G10 grips feature a diagonal texturing that offers a very secure grip without being overly aggressive and they work very well wet or dry. We have handle scales available in Black, Dirty Olive, and Hyena Brown.
