SHOT Show 17 – Unifire Half Talon Knife by Buck Knives

Wednesday, January 18th, 2017

A couple of years ago, Unifire came up with a machete-style blade after a jungle symposium in Hawaii. The Talon is made by Buck Knives exclusively for Unifire. This year, they slightly modified the original design, making it a bit smaller for more everyday use as a utility fixed blade knife.

The Half Talon seen above the full-size Talon FMC, is a full tang design, made from 5160 spring steel with a 1/4″ backstrap and convex design blade which offers three times the cutting strength over a standard design.

The reverse features an open limb hook like a bolo-style knife. The blade also has a Pry point at the tip and 2″ serrated edge near the grip. The butt can be used as a hammer.

The Talon’s blade is Cerakoted and incorprates a multi-layer Micarta handle. It also has multiple lash points. The sheath has a drain hole and can be worn at the belt or attached to PALS webbing.

AUSA – Unifire Introduces ShieldX Elemental Gear

Friday, October 7th, 2016

TLS vendor Unifire displayed their new ShieldX line at both Modern Day Marine and AUSA. ShieldX is powered by X-STATIC which is a silver based antimicrobial to inhibit odor causing bacteria. The fabric itself is is moisture wicking and fast drying with a soft hand for comfort. Offered in Men’s and Women’s styles, the underlayers are FR (ASTM F1506), Arc Rated and Anti-Static (EN1149-5).

The line includes Underlayers, Socks and Linen. The linen would be great for deployments to austere environments where you can’t get things washed as often as you’d like.

In the case of the socks, there are cotton, Coolmax, Merino and FR blends in several colors.

ShieldXgear is available for unit and agency orders though Unifire.

Friday, January 22nd, 2016

BAE Systems is working to bring the software used to produce customized Gridded Reference Graphics to the first responder and LE communities. In particular, they want to prepare products to support counter active shooter operations.

  

The software can also be used by investigators and prosecutors to recreate crime scenes. Data sets can come from a wide variety of sources. For example, the parking lot image in the graphic above was taken by a DSLR from a state police helo. They later mensurated the image using the software.

  

Now the exciting part. It will run on a mobile device. You don’t have to hand out hard copies.
