M48 Cyclone Fixed Blade Knife

Feb 16, 2017

While we are big fans of utilitarian blades for everyday carry or outdoor use, we also understand that some knives don’t quite fit the bill. That’s because, sometimes, blades are built for a very specific purpose. And sometimes that purpose is combat – which is exactly the category that United Cutlery’s M48 Cyclone Fixed Blade fits into.

Crafted from 2Cr13 stainless steel, this 8″ blade features a unique spiral design – leading up to an incredibly sharp piercing point – that is ideal for, well, disemboweling. And it’s attached to an easy-to-grip 30% fiberglass and reinforced nylon handle. Finally, at the base of that handle, a stainless steel “skull crusher” pommel is attached. The whole 13.5″ rig also comes with a specially designed TPR and nylon belt sheath. You can pick one up for $62. [Purchase]
