Stealth – New from Joe Watson Knives and Hardwired Tactical Shooting

The HiTS knife, a collaboration between Joe Watson Knives and Darryle Bolke of Hardwired Tactical Shooting, has been a run away success. It will be a tough act to follow but they are going to try with the “Stealth”.

Joe Watson HiTS Stealth Hardwire Tactical shooting

The Stealth is a fairly versatile design that accommodates a number of techniques. It is basically a double edged American tanto shaped blade. The handle is finished with Joe’s excellent epoxy soaked cord wrap and features a deep finger groove for retention and indexing. By sharpening the straight spine of the tanto Joe and Darryle have created a knife that adapts quickly to edge in or edge out techniques – so much so that, at a glance, it is a dead ringer for a typical pikal knife.

The Stealth will be available soon. Check out Joe Watson Knives.

The Andy features 3.5″ long, 1/8″ thick O1 Tool Steel blade that has a chisel primary grind with a V ground secondary edge. The blade has a Wharnecliffe profile that gives you plenty of point to work with and helps hold the material being cut on the cutting edge when slashing.

The handle slabs are hand textured micarta and the knife has a 3.5″ handle (7″ overall length). It comes with a kydex sheath.

TOPS Knives B.O.B. Knife with Tumbled Finish

The Brothers of Bushcraft designed BOB Knife has been a smash hit for TOPS Knives and for good reason – it is a great knife. I own one and it strikes a great balance between cutting performance and durability thanks to its somewhat unique modified “Scandi” edge and large, hand filling handle. There have been several iterations of the BOB Knife so far; all of them featuring a powder coat finish in various colors.brostbfMany users find that the coating reduces cutting performance and just ends up rubbing off during some common tasks like batoning. It is fairly common for people to actually strip the coating from their knives. The newest version of the BOB Knife is the first without powder coating from the factory. It features a tumbled finish that leaves the 1095 steel bare.If you don’t care for coated knives, this is the BOB Knife for you. Check out the new B.O.B. Knife with Tumbled Finish at TOPS Knives.
