Another model in Halfbreed Blades' new line of tactical tools and blades this year is the MIK-05 Medium Infantry Knife which is available in two variants - the partially serrated MIK-05PS model or plain edged MIK-05.
Both are a fixed blade design, capable of delivering maximum performance.
The MIK-05 was specially designed for the medium field knife role for Special Forces and specialist Law Enforcement/Security operators and incorporates a host of features and boasts outstanding handling characteristics.
Overall the MIK-05 is 299mm in length with 177mm of the full tang construction, Austrian made 6mm Bohler K110 (D2) tool steel, blade exposed.
The blade design features a polished cutting edge with a modified tanto point optimal for piercing, prying and slicing and with the MIK-05PS model is partially serrated on the lower edge.
The MIK-05 also features an extra-large handguard which affords greater control of the blade and prevents injury to the user. Jimping at key points along the tang, including forward of the G10 handle scales also enhances the MIK-05's handling, especially when applying downwards force.
Finishing off the MIK-05's construction is a crusher pommel, ideal for smashing and breaking, and modern design lanyard hole.
Comfort and positive grip are also a feature of the MIK-05 with its G10 handle scales specially faceted and contoured to suit both gloved and bare handed operators.
Available in black, dark earth and ranger green colour options.
