TOPS Knives SWAT Spike Fixed 5" Black Tanto Blade, Black Linen Micarta Handles, Black Kydex Sheath - SSMT-02
TOSSMT02: SWAT Spike Tanto Point Micarta
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 department and regionalized SWAT teams since 1991 and a member of NTOA (National Tactical Officers Assoc.) and IALEFI.
Portions of his testing and review included: "The knife comes in a variety of configurations, all models have roughly 5 inches of cutting surface, either Micarta or wrapped with paracord, full tang and 3/16" thick. One thing that is easily noticed when looking at the SWAT Spike is the pommel of the knife which is fashioned into a very practical pry bar. This knife fills the role perfectly for a SWAT operator looking for a tough, sensible fixed blade that won't take up much space on his person yet proved a myriad of uses. If you're looking for extremely rugged, outstanding quality knives made in America, I would strongly recommend you take a look at TOPS Knives as I am sure you will find what you are looking for."

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.
Micarta is a compressed layered composite sealed within a thermosetting plastic which creates a strong, attractive material that is impervious to water.
