The Southern GrindBad Monkey modified Tanto folding knife is a tool designed for piercing and puncturing while still having adequate cutting power. If you often use your knife for draw cutting or self-defense, you'll feel confident carrying this black and tan tactical pocket knife. This American knife company was started by Zac Brown, a country signer by trade but a knife fanatic at heart. The parts for each Tanto knife are manufactured at his Georgia metal shop using the latest machining technology and then hand-assembled to create a well-balanced, functional and rugged knife.
The detailed craftsmanship of the Bad Monkey Tanto folder begins with the 3.875-inch 14C28N stainless steel blade. Initially developed by Swedish manufacturer Sandvik at the request of Kershaw Knives, this high-carbon steel has impressive corrosion resistance and ease of sharpening. It has a Rockwell Hardness of 59-61 that retains a razor-sharp edge. The blade has a flat grind to give it the sharpest edge possible, helping to pierce and material and offset the lack of a belly for slicing. With the right flip of the wrist, you can use the Emerson Blade Wave hook to flick the Bad Monkey open as you take it out, a potentially life-saving feature if you're under stack. Ambidextrous dual thumb studs are mounted on the blade spine to open the knife more conventionally. All aspects of the blade are coated in a non-reflective PVD coating that adds rust resistance.
The Bad Monkey modified Tanto black folder is 5.4 inches when closed and slides easily into your pocket. A textured desert tan G-10 handle provides all-weather grip and is a great color for military personnel in arid regions. You can be confident the Bad Monkey won't slip out of your hand with the filed thumb rest on the liners and blade spine. The black PVD coated titanium pocket clip is mounted for blade tip-up carry to prevent accidental blade deployment. You can carry it around your neck or hook it to a belt loop for security using the lanyard hole in the handle. This quality liner lock tactical knife has titanium liners and spacer pins along with durable phosphor bronze bushings in the pivot for smooth opening and closing. It weighs less than 5 ounces, giving users a surprising amount of control for a 9.125-inch knife.
Tactical users looking for a precise instrument with a finely ground blade will find what they need in the Bad Monkey Tanto Black and Desert Tan knife. Southern Grind will stand behind this knife with a lifetime limited warranty.
