dbad & KHHI's version of Commando Knife; Fight to Survive...
In 1985, body builder turned actor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, made a movie to compete with the legendary Rambo role played by Sylvester Stallone. The movie was called Commando and from it, the epic Jack Crain Life Support System 1 knife was born. The market after First Blood was flooded with hollow handled survival knives and Crain was asked to make a “Rambo” styled knife. He was more than willing, but wanted his idea of what a combat blade would look like as he was adamant on not making a copy of Liles. Fast forward to 2023 and dbad/KHHI comes together to bring you our version of Crains masterpiece.
What’s so special about the blade?
Up from the original 9x2 inch blade of 440-C steel at a quarter inch thick, ours is 10.5x2.25 inches of 5160 steel and 8MM thick. The saw teeth are no longer staggered, but act as has marks for measuring things like line and detonation cord. The sharp angle from the last tooth, turned into a swept angle contouring perfectly from tooth to the swedged clip point.
What is the grip?
The most notable change In the design would be the true full tang grip from its hollow handled predecessor. Covering the steel are house made micarta scales that offer great grip in all conditions. Another major change was the removal of the blocky guard. An added finger well provides a natural built in lower guard.
What is the Sheath?
Comes with a leather sheath with belt loop and D ring on the top and bottom. Sheath is made extra durable with the large pin on the opening of the sheath.
