Law enforcement and military, the good guys, deserve the best. In that vein, the Protagonist knives were born. Available in either tanto (167) or drop point (169), these knives are duty-ready and integrate with a vest, belt, or pack in a reliable manner using the included injection molded/ballistic nylon sheath. The Protagonist has a two-color rubberized handle made from tough, lightweight Grivory with a grippy Versaflex over-mold.

This listing is for the Protagonist 169BK, which has a black coated drop point blade with a plain cutting edge.
