Blade Show 18 – Terrain 365

Sunday, June 3rd, 2018

Terrain 365 is a collaboration between TAD and PDW founder Patrick Ma Partnered and ABS Master Smith Michael Vagnino, who’ve known one other for about 20 years. Naturally, Terrain 365 concentrates on knives, which is a passion for both of them.

In addition to offering some great designs, Patrick wanted to bring back a non-ferrous material for knives which retains the edge,

is non-ferrous meaning it won’t rust and is non-magnetic. What he had in mind was a revival of cast Cobalt and Carbide. Their alloy is called Terravantium. They don’t roll the material, which crushes the cobalt. Their process retains Dendritic properties of the material.

Initially, Terrain 365 will release four models.

Element Alpha HD


The HD is for heavy duty. No Rice the thick backstrap.

Element Bravo HD


PDW Invictus AT


The AT is for all terrain. This version of the Invictus is made from Ti and Terravantium, making it 100% non-magnetic.

Nautilus HD


This Dive Knife is available with Orange or Black handles which feature an Epoxy for solid grip when wet.

In addition to these initial designs, bar stock is available for other makers.
