Steel 95×18 – domestic analogue of steels 420 and 440. It is strong enough and flexible, lends itself well and keeps sharpening. Corrosion resistant.
The shape of the blade, the clip-point, was chosen by the customer, who wished that the knife was able to penetrate body armor of type 6B23 to a depth of at least 20 mm at an impact energy of 40 J. On the blade there are short valleys to reduce the total weight of the knife. The blade has a stepped variable descent with different angles of sharpening; nano-composite coating based on titanium, which has high wear resistance and hardness. The surface of the blade is processed so as not to throw away the unmasking glares from the light sources.
Sheath for bayonet knife 6×9-1 made of shock-resistant plastic. The sheath contains a diamond bar for straightening the cutting edge, a device for cutting steel wire. For fixing on combat gear “Warrior”, on a belt or a hip, in a set of a knife the cover with the corresponding fastenings is provided.
