Army Veteran Chris Stroup has begun making a name for himself as an up and coming bladesmith.

He recently partnered with Justin Melnick of the hit TV show SEAL Team to create the Bravo 5.

Designed for every day carry, the Bravo 5 is a great companion whether for duty or camp use. It features a full tang and 3.5″ drop point blade made from 1095 High Carbon Steel. This is paired with a Gray G10 or Wood handle giving the knife an overall length of 7.75″.

The Kydex sheath can be configured for vertical or horizontal carry.

Expertly Made, Modern, Folding Chute Knife w/Integrated Bolsters

This Spring 2022, Prometheus Design Werx introduces their STS-B folding chute knife under their Special Projects Division label. This modern, precision made, framelocking chute knife is inspired by the classic Loveless Chute Knife and features integrated, titanium bolsters. The STS-B comes with the OD Green G10 scales installed but also includes an extra set of Black G10 handle scales for user swap out if so desired. Many fine details are machined throughout this purpose driven folder including fine jimping for saber and reverse grips, handle fullers, internal lanyard pin, replaceable lockbar limiter, and dive watch grade glow-in-the-dark cabochons inlaid in the dual thumbstuds. Built with a Böhler M390 blade, the STS-B is highly versatile, capable, and practical wilderness tool for a wide range of field conditions.

The STS-B is available with OD Green G10 handle scales installed and includes an extra set of Black G10 handle scales for user DIY swap.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“This is the level up STS model, which has proven to be one of our most popular folder models. It is certainly one our staff favorites. With its heritage DNA, the design is a well-balanced design of old and new; and uses state of art materials. We don’t do flashy or superfluous knife designs and our purpose driven ethos is defined by the many fine, pragmatic details found in this knife. The STS-B’s use case intent is the same as when Loveless made his Chute Knife under the direction of the legendary Harry Archer.”

The STS-B G10 Combo will be available for purchase for $369.00 on Wednesday, April 6th, 2022 at 12:00pm Pacific via their website, prometheusdesignwerx.com.

The Urban EDC Monaco

Sunday, February 13th, 2022

Designed by Denmark’s Jens Anso, the Monaco is a collaboration with Urban EDC.

According to Anso the Monaco was designed to be a small utilitarian design but at the same time almost a talisman. Like a small worry stone that happen to be a knife. 

He also related that he previously named a small run of custom folders the Monaco, but that this will be the only run of this design.

Offered starting today as a preorder.
