Just in is this spectacular custom piece from Marfione Custom Knives. Anthony Marfione, the owner of Microtech Knives creates stellar custom pieces under the Marfione Custom label. Each of these knives are built by him and meet his exacting standards for quality.
This Custom Halo V features a carbon fiber chassis. The 30K layered carbon fiber handle is accented with a titanium button guard onlay that highlights the trigger button which also boasts a carbon fiber inlay.
The spear point blade has a high polish finish and carbon fiber inlay along the top edge. The blade fires fast and lock up is exactly what you would expect from a high end collectors knife from Marifone.
The charging handle bears the Marfione Dagger logo.
This special custom piece comes in a zipper pouch that has a dagger logo cutout attached to the front via velcro. The dagger logo cutout matches the special Certificate of Authenticity. All of it comes in the new, high quality rare earth closed presentation box. This knife is built for the knife collector who demands the best. Find it on our website here.
Easily one of the most spectacular knives to have crossed my desk in the past few months, the brand new, custom Marfione Halo V knife is everything a collector’s piece should be. The stainless steel handle is finished perfectly with a tear drop piece of Devin Thomas Damascus around the trigger button. The trigger button and a small strip on the charging handle both have inlaid black lip pearl. And to top off this masterpiece, the blade is a Devin Thomas Damascus with a basket weave pattern. The single edge blade has the unique Nightmare grind. This is a blade to behold. Very few of these were produced. Check it out on our website here. And enjoy the detail pictures.
Everyone knows Microtech Knives makes fantastic out the front automatic knives. The Ultratech still stands as one of the greatest OTF knives on the market–and who doesn’t love the feel of a Combat Troodon in your hand. But if you didn’t already know it, Microtech also makes some stellar fixed blade combat knives.
The Currahee is a full tang fixed blade designed for US Special Forces. This knife has undergone some serious field tests and has come through with flying colors. The name Currahee comes from the Cherokee and means, “Stands Alone”.
Different in style and design from many combat knives, this knife attempts to fill the role of serious utility knife in combat zones. What do you really want a knife to do for you if you are deployed into a bad situation? You want to be able to cut, hack and chop whatever you need to–and you want your knife to stand up to some serious abuse. In reality, most combat troops will never use a knife in actual combat. In fact, most of them will tell you that if it comes down to a knife fight, something has gone awry. But, every single person who has worked in a combat zone will tell you that what they most need is a tool they can depend on to cut and chop and hack things.
The Currahee fits the bill. The blade is currently (February 2014) being produced with Bohler ELMAX steel. If you are looking at purchasing a Currahee, just make sure you know which steel it was made with–Microtech does change blade steels from time to time on their knives. They always use high quality steels–but if you are expecting one type of steel and suddenly realize you have a different steel you may be disappointed. The blade is 4.48″ long and 3/16″ thick. This incredibly thick blade is one of the things that really makes the Currahee stand out. It gives it the strength and durability to withstand serious use and abuse. Available as a single edge drop point or a tanto point–I would pick up the tanto given the choice. A tanto point gives the user a more durable tip that can better make heavy piercing cuts.
The Currahee handle is well shaped composite that has one major finger groove and two additional, shallow finger grooves. The top end of the handle–the front quillon–juts out and creates a more than adequate finger guard to keep your hand from slipping up onto the blade when making thrust cuts. Heavy jimping on the spine gives your thumb extra grip and control when making fine cuts.
If you are looking for a heavy duty knife that will perform in combat and survival situations–check out the Microtech Currahee.
While famous for their OTF auto knives like the Ultratech, Microtech has also made some spectacular side open automatics knives. For instance, the UDT series are side open automatics that are built for heavy use–specifically although not exclusively for combat zones.
Currently in production, the Microtech Mini U.D.T. is the smallest side open you will find from them. It has an aluminum handle with a rubberized inlay. A solid, fast opening auto–the Mini is especially a favorite among those who like to EDC an automatic knife but don’t want to carry a beast. With a closed length of 3 1/4″, the Mini UDT is perfect for pocket carry. It doesn’t have a pocket clip–so you can carry it old school style in the bottom of your pocket or you can do what I do with mine–run a lanyard with a skull bead on the end through the lanyard hole and hang the bead out the edge of my pocket. That way, the knife is easily accessed. It works almost just like a pocket clip.
U.D.T. stands for Underwater Demolition Team. The current crop of Mini UDT knives have ELMAX blade steel. Elmax is a powder metallurgy stainless steel that many consider to be superior to S30V. It is extremely tough and holds an edge very well. If you haven’t checked out one of Microtech’s fantastic Mini UDT’s–you can find them here.
