Viking Tactics Knives

Friday, June 28th, 2019

At Blade Show I got a chance to check out the three different knife models from Viking Tactics‘ Bloodline series.

Manufactured by TOPS Knives, they include the Patriot, Crusader and Norseman.

The Patriot features an overall length of 6.75 and a cutting surface of just over 3 inches.

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.

Inspired by a knife made by one of SGM Lamb’s Soldiers who was killed in action in Iraq on 17 June 2005, the Norseman offers an overall length of 11.63” and a cutting surface of 5 ½ inches.

Common features include blades made from 1095 steel and hardened to RC 56-58, they all have a spine tastefully decorated with a Viking Vine, Blood Colored handle liners, and Micarta handles. Each also comes with a Kydex sheath.

Blade Show 19 – Scorpion 6 Knives Ice Axe

Saturday, June 8th, 2019

You walk around a knife show and you see a lot of the same stuff, so when I saw an ice-axe, I had to stop.

Created by Shane, an Army Veteran, he had grown up climbing and wanted an American made Ice Axe. What’s more, he wanted to be able to swap out the tool heads and adjust the angle of attack. He has built the handle out of aluminum and the head out of sword steel.
