TOSKY: Sky Marshall, Tanto
A special mission expert officer Allen Garcia has been a police officer in Middletown, RI since 1988. Prior to that, he served as a Sergeant in the US Army's 82nd airborne division. He has been assigned to both departments a regionalized SWAT teams since 1991 and a member of the NTOA (National Tactical Officers Assoc.) and IALEFI.
Portions of his testing and review included:
The cutting edge features three deep serrated cutting surfaces at its base which, combined with its razor sharp, dual grind, tanto blade gives it excellent cutting capabilities.
The handle is configured to allow for a very secure grip. I found that the traction I could attain when gripping the knife in a standard hammer type grip was absolutely outstanding. Once you get this knife in your hand it is, for the most part, there to stay.
Kydex belt sheath is void of any retaining devices but, is molded to the knife and provides an excellent retention and flash fast drawing capabilities. It is nimble and easy to manipulate. I drove the knife through the tops of 55 gallon drums with nothing more than cosmetic damage. I liked this knife and found no obvious flaws with its design.
This is an excellent knife for the police officer or soldier that is looking for a super tough, dependable knife that is not overly large or cumbersome.

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.
Waterproof, scratch resistant, and low friction. It will hold its shape and makes a great alternative to leather.
This product is USA born and raised.
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.
