The head features a full blade and on the reverse a reverse penetrating spike. Manufactured from D2 tool steel coated with black Teflon and topped off with a G10 contoured handle.

Platatac CUTS:SP

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

Australia’s Platatac has introduced their new Platatac’s CUTS (Cool Under Tactical Shirt): Special Projects. It is a combat style shirt designed for use in hot climates and is very traditional in that the sleeves are woven and the torso is knit.

One interesting feature of the CUTS:SP is that the shoulders are constructed from 3D air mesh to facilitate cooling. Additionally, the bicep include Velcro patches as well as a webbing flap to cover up the IR Square when not needed. These pockets also feature an additional smaller zippered pocket on top of the original pocket.

Currently available only in MultiCam in XSmall – XXLarge in both Regular and Long lengths. All sizes have been issued NSNs. It is important to note, that while CUTS:SP has incorporated some interesting features it was designed for the Australian military and is not FR.
