  • Black DLC-finished dagger blade made from ELMAX super steel.
  • Black G-10 handle scales over a full tang.
  • Black kydex sheath with a MOLLE belt attachment system.


Acta Non Verba (ANV) makes knives that are real tools, not just fun, sharp, pointy things. The Anthropoid, however, is both as real as knives come, and as sharp and pointy as they come. This tactical dagger features a textured handle, a cross-guard, a striker butt, and a thick, full tang. It includes a perfectly fitted kydex sheath and two MOLLE clip straps for vertical or horizontal carry. With the Anthropoid at your side, you'll feel prepared for anything.

Customer Reviews

Almost Perfect
EDWARD K. on Jun 22, 2022

No gloves, thin gloves, and thick gloves, "The knife and sheath will work with them all perfectly". The only thing negative about it is it's a little high priced compared to other knives in similarity to it and if it's worn on a regular pants belt its sheath is made so that the knife handle fits too close to the body even for a normal size person. In other words, if a person was larger than normal in some fashion then they couldn't wear the knife on the waist at all. The sheath needs to have four longer screws and a plastic piece about a half an inch thick available for it so the issue mentioned could be fixed by adding such to the sheath then it would fit and work perfectly.

Not fantastic
Babak J. on Jul 22, 2022

I wanted to love this knife, but it has a few flaws. First, the tip is needle-thin. Looks like it might be good for one stabbing and then a break. I know these are supposed to be thin, but it is taken to an extreme here. Second, the knife is duller than a butter knife. And seeing as this is a knife and not a bayonet, that is unacceptable. Now I have to take 2 edges of 60RC Elmax from the butter knife to sharp. On the bright side, the fit and finish and balance on this are fantastic. It loses a star for coming in dull, I'll update this if the tip ends up breaking.
