Ground Combat Knife
It’s quite clear what type of knife this is going to be, judging from the name alone. If you’re in the military, this is supposed to be the knife for you. The GCK knife has a 5.5 inch blade and is available in both drop point and tango blade styles. They have a slender, linear blade and are made from 5160 carbon steel. This type of steel is known for it’s durability, impact resistance, and ability to retain an edge for a long period of time. The weight of this knife is 9.9 ounces.
The handle, just as the blade, is linear. They also have a finger guard below the blade. The knife is available in beige Micarta or black G-10 handle scales, and the blade itself is coated to match.
