  • Description
    The Stealth project was born during a conversation with a Captain of a famous Italian special unit. The Captain explained to us that during their training and in the special missions they are engaged in, their equipment always has a high weight, thus the need to reduce the weight of each individual item as much as possible. Furthermore, they are always looking to equip themselves in the best possible way to meet their ever-increasing needs.

    Their requirements were to have a new Sub and EOD knife that was:
    1) 100% non-magnetic for delicate mine removal operations; 2) completely stainless;
    3) a tool with high cutting and penetration performance, even momentarily.

    Starting from this list of essential requirements, we began to develop the knife.

    The blade is made of GR5 Titanium with an outer coating of carbon fiber bonded to the inner material using special resins in a vacuum process. The end result is a very flexible blade with high toughness. Titanium and carbon fiber are non-magnetic materials, resistant to salt corrosion, ideal components for EOD and underwater use.
    The handle is made of Forprene®, a special elastopolymer resistant to acids, saline corrosion, and UVA and UVB rays, a material we use for various handles in the FKMD line. The handle screws are made of anodized aluminum.
    The sheath is available in Kydex® provided with two special interchangeable clips according to the users' needs.
