RMJWYVERNOB: Wyvern Short Sword, Exclusive Black/Orange G10
RMJ Tactical
 
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 Wyvern is a short sword designed for chopping and bushcraft. It's made from super tough CPM-3V tool steel which has excellent edge retention and can stand up to a tremendous amount of abuse. The center of balance is a few inches in front of the handle to be weighted for chopping blows. Each Wyvern comes with a kydex scabbard made by RMJ which features several attachment points compatible with RMJ's MOC systems. The scabbard is designed with a 1/3 open back for easy deployment of the sword from an over the shoulder pack. Accessories included are one low-ride MOC Low ride (belt carry) strap, 2 MOC High Ride (MOLLE or high belt carry) straps, and 2 MOC rings (weapon sling or leg tie down).

RMJ Tactical Wyvern Short Sword.
G10 scaled are perfect. The orange/black Knife Center exclusive is wonderful. The feel, balance, and sharpness are 100%. The finish above the beveled edge sucks. There is a scratch, and if looks like someone spilled acid on the blade and attempted to wipe it off. The sheath SUCKS. The buttons are from RMJ but have to be PERFECTLY positioned in order to fasten them. I am LIVID! $680.00, and I get an under a 100 buck bladed instrument. I'm not going through the lengthy process of return and resend. PITA, NO!! From now on, I will visit a dealer. I bought this for protection against coydogs and ex meth-lab rouge pitbull guard dogs here in the mountains. I'm done...no more for me, period.
