"With honor and respect for the men and women of the US Border Patrol"
History: since its inception in 1924, the Border Patrol has been protecting our country and interdicting illegal aliens, potential terrorists, as well as drugs.
In 1984 they formed BORTAC (Border Patrol Tactical Unit) to respond to escalating threats as a result of the scope of situations they deal with.
Their training includes tactical tracking, various types of rappelling CQB and other mission specific skills. Whether serving a high risk warrant here or abroad, executing counter narcotic ops or involved with counter-terrorism... this is the heart and soul of the Border Patrol’s special operations group.
This knife / tool was designed with substantial input from several "in the field" border patrol agents, at different stations along our borders.
A strong, “hard-to-the-core,” combination of real field operator’s input, functional design, and a hands-on manufacturing system.
...SPECIAL OPS...TRUST TOPS...’CAUSE THEY’RE HARD TO THE CORE...
