Looking for a new knife? Haley Strategic and Toor Knives have partnered in the development of a new fighting blade. The result is called The Darter and it’s available in three different colors – Coyote, Disruptive Grey or Ranger Green. The price for The Darter knife is $395.00 and it’s a limited series. Each Darter is finished with an individual serial number marking, an important feature for potential collectors.
There is also a training blade for practice and a sheath in the box.
Here is The Darter product announcement from the companies:
The Darter is a collaboration between Haley Strategic Partners and ToorKnives. Pooling the tactical experience and expertise from Travis Haley, and the quality blade smithing from Toor Knives, The Darter is undeniably the best fighting blade on the market. Its midsize permits placement on your gear without compromising real estate, while its adjustable retention sheath prepares the blade for any mission.
The iconic reverse serrations on the spine offer an extremely sharp solution to fighting with the back of the knife while avoiding the restrictions on a double-edged blade.
Constructed out of Nextgen CPM3V steel heat treated to 60 rockwell, the Darter is stout enough to tackle any task. The Darter is fitted with 3 different colored G10 handles, machined with a texture to match the Darter Dragonfly’s wing pattern, simultaneously providing excellent grip when wet.
This kit includes a black Toor Knives Flex-Tech sheath with a retention adjustability screw and friction offset to reduce blade rattle inside the sheath. Complementing the sheath is mounting hardware and an Ulti-clip Slim 3.3 mount. Rounding out the Darter Kit is a Training Blade for practice and laser cut loop designed to sandwich your sheath into your gear.
Several other key features of this blade include a retention lanyard hole, thumb jimping on the spine and butt end of the blade, stainless steel trorx handle screws, KG Gunkote spray finish, and both companies’ logos laser engraved on the blade.
Every single blade is finished with an individual serial number marking a piece of history from this iconic partnership. These knives are tools of a warrior, works of art and collectable.
