The covert Titanium Lapel Knife isn't just some piece of urban-spy EDC (every day carry).
It's a contemporary take on a real issue, the OSS Lapel Knife, clandestine operatives received to use during WWII.
This modernized Lapel Knife to be more practical and effective for today's carrier.
At just 3.375" long x 0.75" tall x 0.05" wide, there's not a lot of room to get a good grip on the blade, so ergonomics were key.
This grip locks the knife in your hand so there's little chance your finger will slide onto the edge.
The grip also projects the edge of the blade forward like a claw.
We also updated from the OSS Lapel Knife in its ultralight, durable titanium / ceramic composite construction.
At just 4 grams the knife is much lighter than its steel predecessor (and 1 gram lighter than a nickel) and the addition of ceramic to the mix gives the blade most of that material's edge retention qualities, without compromising the strength of the titanium.
The knife can secure beneath your lapel with "glue dots" (sold separately) rather than a sheath, which we feel would add bulk and reduce quick accessibility.
