dbad Mission VI
a joint project between DBAD and KHHI nepal. the BEST from our amazing Rambo Series..
Mission VI ; greatest custom Heartstopper knife on the planet!
The fighting knife that other fighting knives choose for a fight...
With every new Rambo movie, came new inspirations. The action, the motives, the messages and most of all, the knives! In the movie, “Rambo; Last Blood”, our beloved hero introduced us to two new movie blades. While impressive as it is, I saw something in the “Heartstopper”, that inspired me to create a design for a knife to rival all knives. I didn’t want the next great camp, or bushcraft knife. I wanted the next, must have, hand forged hunk of cold steel heaven! Something Rambo himself would have been proud to hold.
What’s so special about the blade?
Using a thick slab 5160 steel, a 9.5” recurve blade was created (8.25" sharp cutting edge) . Known for it’s unwavering strength and ability to take a near perfect heat treat, it was a must use and is definitely proven. The exposed and wedged pommel is an enemies’ worst nightmare. The blade, unlike the movie version is two toned. Last Blood gave us an aging hero who dark side was ageless. Having a touch of black on the steel represents the inner demons and the dark fire they released upon the criminals who took the old man for granted.
Why use wood scales?
Going with white wood (around 5.5" long overall) was an easy choice. As seen on the dbad OEF Defender, the beauty of the grain is amplified through the soft tones. It’s a way to bring the light in through the darkness. Using wood not only keeps the costs down, but also makes for custom fitting to an individual’s grip, as easy as a piece of sand paper.
a small note from KHHI Nepal ..
Congratulations to Mr. Donnie (DBAD) for coming up with such a brilliant design. It has quickly become one of our favorites and also one of the top sellers of the company. John Rambo truly would have been thrilled to own and use such a fine blade. Thank you once again for this great opportunity and brotherly wood. We know there is NO STOPPING US !!
Best Wishes and heart Namaste from Nepal
