SOFIC 2014 – Saevus – G1 Urban Bayonet

One of the things I miss about this new super-sized SOFIC is the small business aspect. You used to walk into SOFIC and see lots of innovative small companies that develop products to support SOF. Some of those things are still there, but now they’re generally tucked into a larger company’s booth. This year, in the booth of Faircount Media, publishers of “The Year In Special Operations” were a couple of such products. One was the Strykr Covert Carry pant but the one that caught my eye was a wooden box containing a knife.

Turns out, it was the G1 Urban Bayonet from Saevus. It’s a very innovative design and I definitely give the creator some credit for thinking outside the box. Essentially, what you are looking at, is a knife that pulls double duty as a foregrip. Granted, most of us have abandoned full length foregrip a due to weight and ergonomics. But look past that because the blade of the G1 stores in the grip and being spring activated, telescopes out into position once deployed. The 3-1/2″ Dual Edge Dagger Blade is made from 440 stainless and the handle is of urethane casting resin.

While it’s time may have already passed due to TTP changes, it’s definitely an interesting design and I look forward to seeing what else SAEVUS comes up with.

    I like it, very creative thinking.

    I’d really be pumped if they combined it with a D-guard handle to make it a detachable, switchblade trench knife. Not for any practical reason, just for the awesome design factor.
