Mission Team 21
Created with the guidance of Bill Hill (Command Master Chief-Seal Team 3 RETD), this design (In conjunction with 30 years of real time experience) has produced a great field tool for any theater. It has great eye appeal, feels good in the hand, and performs always at its best.
The Feb 2006 issue of Blade Magazine had MSG Kim Breed, 5th Special Forces RETD, wrote:
“I laid out the knives and looked them over. The first one to jump out at me was the Mission Team 21. I just like the way the blade is shaped. The weight of the knife makes chopping easy and the handle does not create any hot spots on the hand. Since the blade is about a quarter inch thick, I wanted to be sure the tip would penetrate. The modified false edge eased the task. I used my new phone book, which is 1 inch thick when compressed, the MT 21 penetrated it completely both times. Excellent performance: I could feel the blade crunch cutting as it went through."
