Viking Tactics Knives – Crusader & Norseman

Tuesday, November 27th, 2018

Viking Tactics is offering two knife styles.

Crusader

Drawing from the Bloodlines of VTAC’s first ever knife design, “The Assault”, the Crusader is nearly 9 inches long and has a cutting surface 3 ½ inches in length. The spine of the blade has a Viking Vine machined into the surface for aesthetics as well as to enhance the gripping surface. This coupled with the blood colored liners and Canvas Micarta make a beautiful knife. The blade is built from 1095 steel and hardened to RC 56-58.

Norseman

Drawing inspiration from a knife made by one of SGM Lamb’s Soldiers who was killed in action in Iraq on 17 June 2005, the Norseman has an overall length of 11.63” and a cutting surface of 5 ½ inches. Made from 1095 steel and hardened to RC 56-58, this blade will cut easily and can be field sharpened. The VTAC Norseman’s spine is decorated with a Viking Vine, and Blood Colored handle liners.

The Crusader and Norseman are available from www.vikingtactics.com.

Eagle Scout Knives by Camillus

Tuesday, November 20th, 2018

Offered in 3″ folding blade or 4″ fixed blade versions, Camillus has introduced Eagle Scout commemorative knives.

Camillus has a long history of making Scout knives. These new models were created at the request of Boy Scouts of America’s Mike Gerard (Eagle Scout and former Army Ranger). Unfortunately, although BSA intended these knives to be used every day, they have not released any specs on the materials used, leaving me as an Eagle Scout, to view these as collectibles, kept on a shelf to celebrate an accomplishment.
