The Patented SLYSTEEL Shark Tooth Tactical knife designed by Oliver Hannan is intended to be an emergency rescue and self-defense tool. It features the Split Finger Guard that provides both protection and retention.
American Tanto Blade Design
The Shark Tooth Tactical features an American tanto blade and is specially designed for strength and deep penetration. The primary point of the Shark Tooth Tactical has exceptional strength and can easily pierce automobile steel and high tech fabrics such as light body armor. The Tactical is an ideal choice for firefighters, military personnel and law enforcement.
Shark Tooth Tactical Split Finger Guard
The unique look of the Shark Tooth Tactical knife is created by integrating a hand guard with a traditional finger guard and choil. The result is the SLYSTEEL Split Finger Guard that provides both protection and retention. This unique design feature prevents slipping, provides the user protection from strikes, and allows virtual full use of the hand without putting the knife down. The design provides unparalleled protection in a reverse grip allowing the user to strike, pierce, and defend with confidence.
Trusted by US Military and EMT’s
The Patented SLYSTEEL Shark Tooth Tactical knife is currently used by US Navy SEALS and Special Operations, law enforcement officers, and firefighters. The Shark Tooth Tactical is more than just a knife in the hands of these professionals. It is a tool designed, tested and trusted to perform without failure. Firefighters use the Tactical to cut through automobile hoods in order to disconnect the battery and prevent spilled gasoline from igniting. They use it to prepare door jams for their jaws of life, enabling them to extract vehicle crash victims. US Marines use the Tactical to dig entrenchment holes for their machine gun bipods. Others use the Shark Tooth Tactical as a primary emergency preparedness tool in their go bags.
High Carbon Steel
High carbon 1095 steel is well known for its edge retention, toughness, and ease of sharpening. These three factors are what make 1095 a great steel for the Shark Tooth Tactical. The knife is also differentially heat treated to provide exceptional edge retention while maintaining blade flexibility. The Shark Tooth Tactical has a protective coating, allowing it to be properly cared for with little maintenance. Keeping any exposed steel dry and oiled will ensure a lifetime of use.
The Shark Tooth Tactical is epoxy powder coated in black or tan over a tumble finish to eliminate reflective surfaces and to inhibit corrosion. The black and tan powder coats are low reflective for law enforcement and military applications. The tan powder coat is low contrast for desert environments. While the black powder coat is suited for night operations or when discreet tools are required. High visibility colors are available in red, orange, and yellow for fire department and emergency rescue applications. The knife is also available with a clear Cerakote tumble finish for those who like a traditional knife look.
Pommel Tool and Lanyard Hole
The pommel of the Shark Tooth Tactical has a blunt tip that can be used as a chisel or pry tool and is an effective glass breaker. The included lanyard hole allows a user to relinquish their grip without losing the knife.
