Pinkerton Knives – Ditch Dart

Friday, January 30th, 2015


The Ditch Dart is a small, general purpose utility knife made by Pinkerton Knives in collaboration with retired US Army MSG Grady Burrell. This particular model is made from D2 tool steel, with an OAL of 4.6″, a 2.5″ primary edge, and a 2.25″ secondary edge. Serrations are optional. The handle features grooves, which would allow for the addition of a parcord wrap, and a lanyard hole. After extensive testing, it was determined that the knife’s thickness of .125″ is the best thickness for strength, weight, and edge geometry relative to its size.

Models made of 154CM steel have also been made, and are marked accordingly.

Blade Show 2014 – Pinkerton Knives / HTM Knives

Sunday, June 8th, 2014

Knife designer Dirk Pinkerton has been making knives full time since 2008 but his passion for knives for knives goes back to when he was kid when he first started using knives. This became an obsession at the age of 30 when Dirk began collecting and eventually, under the tutelage of Darrel Ralph he began to make his own.


Recently, he started to design for HTMKnives and the first model in production is the Variable Broadhead. Made from Titanium, it’s an ambidextrous self-defense knife that can be used forward grip, reverse grip, as well as a push dagger.

The sheath can be suspended from the neck as well a tethered to a pocket or inside belt carry. Additionally, the Kydex sheath can be adapted to a Tek-lok or Spyderco G-clip.
