New Collector’s 5.11/Strider SMF Knife limited edition
At the 2013 SHOT Show Tom Davin (5.11’s CEO) approached Duane Dwyer (Strider Knives Co-Owner) about Strider building a custom knife for 5.11 Tactical. The culmination of this project is the new Limited Edition 5.11/Strider SMF.
Imagined and engineered with utilitarian requirements at heart, the knife is constructed with a minimum of components and features Strider’s traditional titanium slab frame lock with rounded edges and a ceramic tumble finish.
The handle is a solid block laminate with rough peel surface for positive grip with the 5.11 logo. A glass epoxy block is milled out for the blade and mated directly to the titanium slab. No spacers, no extra parts, no BS.
The blade design is a drop point, hand flat ground with a simple break on the spine and no false edge. This collector’s knife includes a custom nylon pouch and a commemorative patch designed by 5.11’s lead product designer Cory Nykoluk. The skull, stars and blue field are inspired by the WWII Marine Raiders’ patch.
This knife is an exclusive offering for 5.11 online shoppers only!!
