A part of the Austrian Special forces brief was that the Glock knife need to be suitable for throwing. The blade design is a clip point and the thinned edge of the clip is sharpened to form a true second cutting edge. Consequently giving great penetration when throwing.
Glock Knife is Perfect for Survival or Tactical.
The blade is crafted from SAE 1095 spring steel. Subsequently heat treated to a hardness of 55 Rockwell. Spring steel has superb flexibility and impact resistance. Even when hardened it maintains a high yield stress limit and keeps it’s edge. A downside is that it is not as resistant to corrosion as stainless high chrome content steels. As a consequence these blades are treated with a Glock phosphate treatment process. This consequently results in excellent corrosion resistance.
The grips and sheaths are made of Glock Polymer ll -invented by the great man himself. Available in Black, Grey. Flat Dark Earth and Field Green.
Finally the sheath has a retention clip that secures the knife, a belt clip for attaching the knife to a belt. Need a bottle opener. No problem, the cross guard is designed to be a convenient bottle opener.
