FOX STEALTH CARBONTITAN TANTO BLADE STYLE
The concept for the STEALTH program has been launched after a discussion with a Captain of a world’s famous Italian Special Forces Unit. The Captain explained to us that during their training and in particularly during special operations – their equipment load is quite substantial and they are looking to reduce – as much as possible – the weight of their essential equipment. In the field – every single ounce counts. As well, as is the case with all special ops teams looking to improve their edge in the field, they have been looking for a new diving and EOD knife that is 1) 100% non magnetic for mine demolition, 2) completely rust resistant and 3) a superior cutting tool. From this list of essential needs we started the development of our STEALTH blades. The blade is manufactured using an inner core blank of BETA Titanium with external layers of Carbon Fiber that are bonded together using special resins in a vacuum process. The end result is a blade that is very flexible with minimal vibration. The Titanium and Carbon Fiber are completely non-magnetic and rust resistant and are ideal components for EOD and diving purposes. The handle is made from FORPRENE material, a special industrial grade elastopolymer that we are using in all of our FKMD knives. The handle screws are in anodized aluminum. For the sheath we are offering two styles depending on the application: 1100D Cordura nylon MOLLE compatible or heat molded KYDEX. We will also introduce a stainless steel version using N690Co Cobalt Vanadium steel for the inner core blank. Both solutions are extremely strong but lightweight (only 5 ounces in Titanium) multi use tactical knife with superior.
Blades: BETA TITANUM with CARBON FIBER covering - length mm 180 - thickness mm 6 bead blast finishing

Handles: Made with high resistant FORPRENE® material, an elastopolymer with very high thermal proprieties
from -40°C to +150° C, it has very high grip power. The material is also very resistant to salt and acid
corrosion and can be used in all wet situations. Total length of the handle is mm 135.
