The Bravo-1 was specifically designed with the folks at the southern training center of the force recon units of the U.S. Marine Corps. The initial contract was back in 2006 and we began delivery in 2007 of the Bravo-1 and they are still in heavy demand from professionals both in the military and private contractors. They are also used by a lot of private citizens as their “go to” knife for heavy outdoor use. This new Bravo 1 LT has been modified to be made from thinner stock to add more slicing and slashing ability in the same size package. The stability of the CPM 3V steel combined with our heat treat and temper regimen give the same lateral strength as the thick version of the knife.
