SOA specializes in putting out high-quality, battle-ready knives made to be a soldier’s companion in the field and in country. With the special forces as its inspiration, the Death Waits In The Dark Fixed Blade Knife has a stealthy, on-point design. The full-tang, 5” non-reflective black stainless steel blade has “Death Waits in the Dark” etched on it. The black TPU handle scales are bolted securely to the tang and feature an ergonomic cut-out, lightweight design. A tough nylon belt sheath is included to protect and carry this fixed blade.
Just got two of these on the BOGO and this is one solid, well made, well designed blade. The edge right out of the box floored me. I checked it under a good lighted magnifier while wearing reading glasses and the edge is nearly invisible. A couple tiny imperfections on the long edge and part of the front edge is not sharp but it's very well ground and polished. Will take minutes to bet these in shape. I love the blade shape and length on this knife and wish more did 4-6 inch blades. False edge swage point, straight back tanto design will work great for most jobs. 3 mm thick blade. V notch and "eye" hole in blade. The handle is sized for bigger medium to larger sized hands without being so big that smaller hands would hate it. The skull crusher pommel is well thought out and shaped to be easily used as a flat head screwdriver, can opener, pry tool. That thing is solid and ready for damn near anything you might need to throw at it. Great non-lethal attitude adjuster for pressure points or bony areas as well. The full tang is very thick steel and while the sides are a black plastic it feels rock solid and the sides feel solidly connected via hex bolts on each side. The handle does not feel too squared off and feels referenced quickly and solidly in the hand. Well placed thumb rest with grooved grip/lashing points along this versatile tool. Tang is 3 mm thick and fully extends down into the rear quillon. Handle is about 15.7 mm thick. Feels good in both a hammer/dagger grip or with the thumb in the rest for control/pressure. For me personally this handle is just a little longer than I prefer but I will be keeping one of these and probably ordering more while they last. The sheath is the standard BUDK nylon which if you know, you know it's well made, thick and durable. At $9.99 this is a bargain so if you can still bogo, GOBOGO!
