Fusing tradition and innovation, the USMC Blackout Combat Fighter is a modern take on a classic USMC knife design. Its 6 3/4″ 420 stainless steel blade features the clip point profile, nonreflective black coating, blood groove and ‘USMC’ stamp that combat fighter fans know and love. It’s a time-tested blade design that continues to prove its worth on present-day battlefields. Five green bands encircle the handle – an aesthetic nod to the classic combat fighter’s stacked leather handle. Retooled to satisfy the unique demands of the modern era, the Blackout Fighter’s injection-molded handle is extraordinarily durable and boasts a textured grip that virtually eliminates slippage, even when wet. A steel glass breaker is set atop the pommel – another contemporary addition that’s perfect for escaping entrapment (or assisting others). Add the included nylon belt sheath, and you’ve got a versatile setup that honors traditional wisdom, while taking full advantage of the latest innovations.
