USASOC Sniper Comp – American Kami

Friday, March 25th, 2016

American Kami always uses Sniper Comp to debut new models. This year it’s the dagger designs we recently showed you pictures of.


This is a graphic from American Kami which gives you the names of the various daggers. I know the trench knives are becoming very popular.


DJ had to burn the candle at both ends to get these ready for Bragg.  Commercial versions will have a DLC coating over the CPM S35VN.

Blade Show 2015 – American Kami

Saturday, June 6th, 2015


DJ had one heck of a time getting from his home base in the Midwest to Atlanta for Blade Show but it was certainly worth it. Here we have the new Necker NULU (left) and NPD or Necker Push Dagger (right). They are made from CPM S35VN with Black or Coyote DLC coating. Coming soon are user configurable slabs.

Rim Jack – An RMJ Tactical / American Kami Collaboration

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

Meet the Rim Jack. It’s a collaboration between RMJ Tactical and American Kami meant as a special build to raise awareness and money for the Green Beret Foundation. The only way you’ll be able to score one of these is when they are in limited release for fundraisers.


Essentially, the Rim Jack is an Eagle Talon head increased 10% with an open bid at the blade. Naturally, it’s 100% Made in the USA. The .9″ thick handle offers G10 grips (laser engraved with both brands’ logos) with a .275″ thick head made from DLC coated S7. The head is held in place via a mortis and tenon attachment with proprietary screws.

American Kami Introduces Colubris II Line and a Surprise

Tuesday, May 6th, 2014

I must admit that I have been somewhat remiss in sharing this news, so I apologize. I actually found out about this during last month’s USASOC Sniper Competition and told American Kami’s DJ Urbanovski that I would share this with my readers. I’m holding up my promise, but I’m late. However, the info is just as cool today as it was when I first learned of it.

As you may recall, American Kami has collaborated with Böker to transition the original, fixed blade, Colubris design into a production model. Last Fall, DJ started working on the next iteration of the design which is now known as the Colubris II.


Just like the original, the new Colubris II will feature CPM S35VN with a tumble over heat treat finish and G10 scales. There are three models; the N for Nano, the S for Small and the M which is Medium and a direct replacement for the original model.


Additionally, you can see the GTFO knife. It too is crafted from S35VN and offers more alternative force applications than other daggers. It incorporates an ‘almost civilian legal everywhere’ sub-3″ blade and can be used as a utility knife as well. Mount may also notice the “spur” in the ring handle.


DJ builds one heck of a knife meaning they are quite popular and difficult to find. If you are serious about getting one of his knives or axes, I suggest contacting him through his website. He’s a very humble guy, easy to work with, and will get you on a waiting list.

Sneak Peek – American Kami MicrAxe

Friday, January 31st, 2014


Coming soon from American Kami is a new batch of the MicrAxe. Manufactured from 3/8″ thick S7 which is a shock steel. In fact, it’s the stuff they make jackhammer bits out of. Overall length is 11.5″. These will be coated with black or FDE DLC from Ionbond and feature OD, coyote, or black handles.


At 37oz total weight, the MicrAxe is about the same as complete weight of a 24oz framing hammer. Like DJ told me, “Small form factor, yet still fully capable of wrecking stuff.”
