The Snakehead

     There are several subspecies of this freshwater predator.  The main things they all share is a face full of teeth, a bad attitude and a real knack for survival.  Fitting characteristics to incorporate into a survival style tactical knife.

Price as shown $319.85 plus shipping in brass guard and hilt only with walnut.

As you can see, Snakehead has the kind of thick dished forehead of it's name sake.  Very useful as an anvil point for striking with a mallet.  Also a useful place to strike a magnesium stick for starting fires.  The backbone is lined with a row of very sharp little serrated teeth, just like it's name sake, but these steel teeth are a lot more useful for cutting rope, tendon or anything else that resist a standard cutting edge.  Like the rest of the Blackwater series, the large tapered handle has a brass double guard, brass hilt and a walnut handle with a palm swell to minimize hot spots as you work.
