A full size fighting folder built to the durability requirements of
full-on, Spec-Ops combat! If you need a utility folder, this is not the
knife for you. The StratoFighter™ Stiletto feature Dark Op's proprietary
RaptorLok™, a self cleansing double talon locking system that uses the
entire length of the knife to support the opened blade. Unlike modern
unproven and complicated locking systems, this basic principles of this
design have been tested for over fifty years. Dark Ops' secondary
CrisisCross™ cross-bolt locking system serves the function of preventing
the knife from being closed while open. The pommel end of the knife
offers an integrated emergency window breaker and paracord safety
tethering hole. The scales are made of T6160 aircraft grade hardened
aluminum, not porous materials that cannot be decontaminated from bodily
fluids or chemical munitions. Carved into the sides of the scales are
lateral control grooves that provide indexing points in darkness as well
as additional control without increasing the width of the handle. Deep
finger grooves orient the knife in the hand and add a third more grip
area. Quartz impregnated inserts provide extreme circumstances grip
enhancement and are replaceable should decontamination be required. The
pocket clip is reversible for true ambidextrous tip up carry. The finish
is Carbon Black Titanium CarboNitride (TiCN) vacuum deposited finish and
is designed to shed the micro-fine airborne sand of Middle-eastern
deserts. The Blade steel is made from Dark Ops proprietary CTV2™ steel,
an exotic and expensive Hybrid of Chromium, Cobalt, Tungsten, Vanadium,
Molybdenum, in an alloy of surgical grade stainless steel. Thorough
hardened to 58 HRC Rockwell with a secondary cryogenic cutting edge
hardening, it is a steel that is basically indestructible! A full
