Gryphon M35 Survival/Combat knife with Black Nylon Combat Master Spec-Ops Sheath
The Gryphon Knives M-35 Combat Survival Bowie was designed by Bob Terzuola to be a rugged, yet affordable knife. In 1979, Terzuola began making knives and joined the Knifemakers' Guild in 1981 on an endorsement from Bob Loveless. Bob Terzuola is credited for the term “Tactical Knives” for his work designing folding knives. Reminiscent of the classic Randall Knives Model 14 Attack, the Gryphon M-35 is well suited for use as a field, camp, survival, and if need be - a combat knife. The razor sharp 7.5" bowie style blade features a generous choil for extra blade control during close-up work. The blade steel is Japanese AUS-8A, which is well proven since first made popular in the 1980's. The shock absorbing Kraton handle is deeply checkered for a dependable non-slip grip. Its full-length tang is exposed for added strength and versatility.
This NOS Gryphon M 35 was matched with a Combat Master Spec-ops sheath. The "COMBAT MASTER" utility knife sheath was developed to be the answer to a need from the field: Safely and securely carry the operators blade as well as be able to easily adapt to all M.O.L.L.E. type (PALS webbing loops) systems as well as duty and pants belts. The COMBAT MASTER is the only sheath commercially available that was specifically designed to accomplish this feat. Fully jumpable and overbuilt, this is the essential sheath for your combat blade!
Survivalist will love the pouch on the front of the sheath, perfect for a compass, sharpening stone, fire-steel, fire starter and more.
