Shipping is free to U.S. and APO/FPO/DPO addresses. The price you see is the delivered price to your door. Let's face it, a knife for most of us is a tool. It's not often you look at a knife and not only say it's a great tool, but it looks hot as well. What makes this knife line unique is the design is based on the venerable Colt 1911 handgun, the mainstay of the US military for decades and a favorite of civilians. Though replaced with the Beretta, versions of the 1911 are still in service today with various spec ops groups, so despite the reports of its demise, it's still in use because of its first shot .45 cal knockdown punch in close quarters that the 9mm can't muster up. It uses any standard 1911 grip right off the shelf, so if you want to customize your knife, you can do it quite easily. Not only does the folder use standard 1911 grip handles, it uses 1911 pistol bushings and grip screws as well. The black ballistic nylon sheath is well built with a belt loop. The design of the belt loop allows for it to be detached at one end for use on a Molle compatible vest. Very nice for military use. And, it gets even better. The locking mechanism is so unique it is a patent pending design called the hammerhead lock. It is a true single hand opening mechanism that doesn't use small spring assists, which eventually wear and break. All the M1911 knife blanks are CNC cut initially from U.S. manufactured 440C stainless steel, then heat treated perfectly to HRC 57-59, hand finished, sharpened and assembled in Canada by master knife builder Terry Huang. These are manufactured in short runs and are not mass produced. The blade length is 3.5" and overall length when open is 8". Weight is 6.8 oz. The grip is double diamond pattern checkered G10 in tan. The new Generation III M1911 has an increased blade width to .154" (3.9mm) for increased strength and blade rigidity. The black coating is now a more durable matte titanium nitride, replacing the black oxide. The blade tightness can now be adjusted for the perfect tension and feel. The locking mechanism has been smoothed out making one hand opening even easier. Now, before you ask, let me give you the answer. If it's based on the M1911, won't the grip be real thick... too thick for a knife? The answer is no. The thickness of the grip is a standard knife thickness. Since this is a knife, it doesn't need to load a magazine, so the knife frame is much slimmer than a 1911 handgun grip. But, this I can tell you, it feels right in your hand. And, it is built tough to Terry's demanding specifications. And when you see it, you'll understand what we mean by demanding. Click on the "More Images" link below the picture above to see the quality of workmanship. I don't think there is another knife manufacturer in North America where you will get this level of personal craftsmanship in a hard core duty knife. It just isn't found. Even $300 tactical knives are machine built and finished for the most part. You will read every so often in our product listings that our picture doesn't do this item justice. When we say it, we mean it. This picture simply can't convey the quality or craftsmanship that you will see when you pull it out of the box. Even the packaging is first class. Everything about this knife is first class. And at this price, we aren't kidding around. That's the other reason we were so excited when we came across his company. The quality and price just don't match up. It's a much higher quality knife than the price suggests. We've seen imported knives at this price that don't even approach the quality of the M1911 folder. With your order you will get a black ballistic nylon sheath for your belt or webbing that mounts vertical or horizontal. A tool to remove and change the grip if you desire, or to add a pocket clip (included). The accessories fit into a small pocket on the sheath. If that's not enough we ship free to U.S. addresses and APO/FPO U.S. military addresses. NOTE: We cannot ship this item to civilian addresses outside of the U.S.
