TROIKA Tactical Blade: Pre-Production Preview

 Knife fighters, martial artists, collectors, and those working in the field take note of a brand new blade soon to be available in both fixed and folder models.  A collaboration between the brilliant minds of Torin Hill (of Toris LLC), Meynard Ancheta, and master blade smith Jeff Crowner.  Expect to see more on all three of these gentlemen here on the Ground Never Misses soon.  In the meantime check out the description of the blade...

We are proud to announce the release of the TROIKA™.

The blade was conceived as a primary-edge, secondary-blade weapon that could improve upon the Sykes-Fairbairn knife of old. Using feedback from Torin Hill, Meynard Ancheta devised an incredible tool, and tracked down the perfect knife maker, Jeff Crowner. Crowner has applied his incredible HT methods and blade/grind geometry to make this the pinnacle of fighting knives.

TROIKA boasts a 5.25" CPM3V single-edge blade with a custom heat treatment by blademaster Jeff Crowner. Designed for rapid-penetration/rapid-release, the blade has a minimal volume-signature, and perfect in-hand balance.

Hand filed G10 scales provide a rock-solid grip, and the handle of the knife is designed for style-agnostic use: point up/down, blade forward/reversed… TROIKA don't care.
