American Kami THE SHIIT BAG

Wednesday, September 4th, 2013

DJ at American Kami has been working on THE SHIIT (Situational Heavyduty Idiots Implement Technical) BAG for quite awhile now. He’s a knife maker and not a nylon guy but he set out to design one hell of a bag. And he’s succeeded.

Right up front you have to put a few things into perspective.

1. American Kami’s THE SHIIT BAG is not for everyone.
2. American Kami’s THE SHIIT BAG is a very specialized piece of kit.
3. American Kami’s THE SHIIT BAG is built in limited runs.
4. American Kami’s THE SHIIT BAG is Made in USA.

All of this adds up to an expensive bag.

This thing is so packed with features that the only way to really learn about it is via video.

Here’s the timeline:

1. Order books close next Tuesday, 10 September, at 11.59PM CST. I will require all payments to be processed by then.
2. Wednesday morning, I submit the final count to the vendor and they start rocking out the production.
3. 8-10 weeks later, finished bags arrive here.
4. I pay the vendor.
5. I do a complete individual QC check on each bag setup, pack, and ship.
6. Your bag arrives.
7. We all do our happy dance.

The complete kit comes with:

1. The bag.
2. The strap.
3. The strap pad.
4. The flap.
5. Two tear out dividers with internal, top loading, Velcro closure pockets.
6. Ten single sided Velcro MOLLE/PALS Ripstrips.
7. Five double sided Velcro MOLLE/PALS Ripstrips.
8. The MBS holster.

Total price per kit is $624 plus USPS priority insured shipping.

Kits are only available in coyote at this time.

American Kami Maniaxe Options – UPDATED

Monday, June 3rd, 2013


We took this photo of several versions of the American Kami Maniaxe which is the world’s first completely modular axe system consisting of Four handles and Fifteen heads. Totally interchangeable and user configurable to suit whatever mission profile life might throw at you.

Updated – This one is mine. It’s not a chisel grind.


Blade Show – Böker / American Kami

Saturday, June 1st, 2013

American Kami is collaborating with German manufacturer Böker to offer the Standard Colubris commercially.


The knife on the top is the Böker model and the lower one is the original from American Kami.

This is a great move that means that the Colubris design will always be available and at an affordable price. Granted, it’s a production knife, but much remains the same including the overall dimensions and design as well as the same G10 handles. They’ve moved to a 440C blade but its still designed for use with a Filipino Martial Arts grip.

Look for these to hit the market in about 4 weeks from

Blade Show – American Kami

Saturday, June 1st, 2013

Over the past few months I’ve been showing you sneak peeks of the Colubris family. Named after the Humminbird, it is a well balanced general purpose combat knife.


Here is the last finished model available in the batch that D.J. Brought to Blade Show. Most were gone the first day. Th Super Colubris offers the same ergonomics as the original Colubris but with a slightly longer blade. The 6″ blade is crafted from CPM S35VN and features a tumble over heat treat finish. This model offers a modified droptip but is also available with a Harpoon Recurve and Harpoon Tanto blade.

All Colubris models feature an interesting sheath that is intended to be worn IWB and tethered to the belt or attached via the grommets to your kit.

This picture was taken immediately after machining of the new Super Colubris. The harpoon tanto and recurve don’t have names yet.

Steel on these is CPM S35VN. The Super Colubris is around 10.5” OAL with 6” of blade. Harpoon tanto and recurve are each around 10” with 5” of blade.

These should be going off to Heat Treat next week along with the next batch of Maniaxe heads. Can’t wait to see the finished items.
