Today's tactical fixed blade knives still resemble the first Bronze Age daggers of 4000 years ago, especially in their handle design. Michael Martinez, sculptor, inventor, and martial artist, didn't start out to redesign the fixed blade, but he explains, "In my edged weapons training, I kept noticing how many knives didn't feel right, didn't have a grip that gave both control and comfort in the four fundamental tactical grips." Michael's design firm, Group Design, Inc., reached out to a team of medical specialists for the answer. Their Ultimaâ„¢ achieves 22 out of 23 ideal contact points with its unique patent-pending handle.

The injection-molded black Zytel® scales feature over 70 triangular grip segments, separated by sipes, or "ooze grooves" which channel away water, mud and oil. Horizontal grooves are placed under the fingertips for optimum feel.

Because tactical knives are inevitably used as pry bars, Michael's team created a butt pry tip as an extension of the blade tang, with a rounded tip.

This smaller Ultima, model 2125KV, features a 4.95" full-tang blade of 1.4116 stainless steel with a black titanium nitride coating. It comes with our exclusive patented Veffâ„¢ Serrations.

Developed by Oregon City, Oregon, knife designer Tom Veff, these serrations are wide and angled at 60 degrees to the edge. The resulting cutting points bite instantly and dig deep upon contact, slicing smoothly and effortlessly. They give dramatically improved cutting ability on rope, webbing, strapping, hoses and leather.

Tactical Sheath. The Ultima's custom black Cordura®/Zytel® sheath has an injection-molded liner. Dual belt loops are Velcro® adjustable. For maximum versatility, there are ample grommets with a length of 550 paracord included, an adjustable leg strap, plus a slotted sheath back that can mount on MOLLE gear. Removable security handle straps with snaps give access and security. A utility pocket with a Fastex™ buckle will carry a variety of folding knives, multipurpose tools or sharpeners.

After 4,000 years of scientific progress, the only thing the Ultima shares with its bronze ancestors is its role in the mission.

I just have to say, that this product did not disappoint. I bought it for a gift, and a wish i had bought an extra one for myself. Apart from looking awesome it does the job and cuts through anything.

Now this is a knife. I have extensive practice and experience with all sorts of weapons, and by far, this is one of (if not THE) best knives I have ever wielded. The weight is wonderful, perfect for throwing and close quarters combat. The edge comes SHARP right out of the package, the serrated portion is DEADLY. I cut myself almost immediately just testing it. Feels great in my hand and the contact points are comfortable for gripping and transitioning. The custom made sheath is a bit impractical for everyday covert wear, but that's where the impracticality stops. All in all, its a great self defensive implementation, and well worth the money. Whether it be a rapist, home intruder, mutated freak in the woods, or simply a tool to aid in rescuing a damsel in distress, this is well worth the money.

This knife is amazing! Worth every penny! The blade comes perfectly sharpened, and the serrated edge is the best i have seen. The hilt is a bit heavier than the blade, probably due to the pry bar but you can hardly notice when you wield it. This knife blew all my others out of the water. One of the best things i have purchased on this site!
