dbad & KHHI version of Rambo First Blood Knife at its best...

When your original Rambo Knives are locked for showcasing; the dbad MISSION 1 is your answer for a real hardcore working knife

For many of us, when asked, “what was the knife that made you love knives?”, the answer is simple; "The Rambo First Blood". Over the years many copies of the Lile original have been made, 99% of them not worth the name. The classic lines, the round green threaded grip, the saw teeth and swept clip point. All made to be one beautiful package. But I wanted a knife that is more than just beauty. I wanted beauty that WAS the beast. My interpretation of Rambos first knife is just that. A stunning Ramboesque look with traditional Gurkha toughness.

What’s so special about the blade?
Beginning with a quarter inch of 5160 steel, it is hand hammered to a sharp 9 inches. Rather than the traditional saw teeth the “wire cutter” slot that ran down the clip point, this knife has the teeth only on the spine, leaving the beautiful clip naked and free. The lines are cleaned up and flow perfectly giving it that sweet Rambo feel without being a cheap Rambo copy.

Why use paracord?
OD green cord was a must. Any true soldier would have this at the ready making it more fitting on a combat blade.

What is the grip?
As noted, it comes with a cord wrapped round handle. I wanted the look of the original grip, but also needed to have the sold feel and strength of a full tang knife. Under the cord, you will find rosewood scales fixed to a 5” tang that rather than having a screw on cap, has a devastating hammer end. All the nostalgia, double the punch.

My Mission 1 arrived and is everything you said it would be. As a retired Vietnam Vet and custom knife collector this knife receives my highest honor. I would be proud to carry and use the knife in any and all situations. Thank you for a great knife/weapon.
