The A.P.O.C. Katana is an all-business tactical Katana designed for maximum usability, practicality and lethality and this version has an additional hidden-blade Kozuka knife which serves as an excellent utility knife and a backup close-quarters self defense tool – it slides and slots into its own pocket on the scabbard for concealment and swift removal when needed.
Designed by renowned swordsmith Angus Trim, the clean lines of this katana emphasize decisive cutting coupled with robust construction; the spine of the blade is thick and strong and in profile the blade has an elongated, chisel-like geometry designed to give it a long cutting plane – this is a blade built to cut, hack, stab and slice with authority. The blade is constructed from 9260 high carbon steel and is finished with a Black Oxide coating to minimize maintenance and maximize stealth.
The thickened tang is very wide for optimum hilt durability; the grip scale slabs are both simple and sturdy G10 Fiberglass laminate which is triple anchored into the tang. The grip design is flush with the tang and has no notable hard edges so as to prevent blisters and lesions on the hands from extended field use. A hooked notch at the base of the blade prevents the hands from sliding onto the blade during a strike. A pre-drilled lanyard hole accommodates your own lanyard or hanging loop. The sword comes with a tactical sheath of fiberglass with MOLLE system-compatible hanging slots. Two knobs in the sheath lock onto matching indents on the the sword to secure it into the scabbard when sheathed.
The Kozuka Knife has a sharp and slender blade crafted from High Speed Steel to ensure that it has a high level of edge retention and hardness. This type of tool steel is often used for applications where durability is paramount, such as for saw blades and drill bits and it finds great utility in this Kozuka utility knife. The knife has full tang construction with a handle of G10 riveted to the tang for a tough and lasting construction.
