This is a special operator's choice tool, designed for rugged performance and specialized use. The hours of darkness. Many military guys know this as slang for very early in the morning. The original meaning was the last bottom of the hour before dawn. Also, 00:30 - Thirty minutes after midnight--used to refer to a very early starting time.

- Don't Want To Be On The Receiving End Of This!
Received this as a Christmas gift, the photos make it look nice, but once you hold it in your hand you'll know you've got a deadly knife. The guard on the top side of the knife can be a little uncomfortable when choking up on the blade, but all other grasps are pretty comfortable, even with (I think) the rocky mountain tread. The appearance alone is enough to make some people gawk at while you use it. The edge on the back is NOT sharpened, I only say that because some knife laws are picky on double-edged knives.
I would suggest buying a different sheath than the one it comes with. I currently have mine in a leather sheath, but would love to see this sold with Kydex. For what it's intended for, Kydex seems (to me) to be more practical.
If you want a combat knife, this is the one. (Posted on 7/14/2018)
