The Next Evolution in a Defensive Blade is Now.
Perfect for Military, Law Enforcement, and responsible civilians.
After instructing hand to hand combatives for the deploying Special Operation Soldiers, Al Salvitti solicited feedback upon their return. The consensus was that while the traditional drills and forms for blade fighting would be effective, it was something that needs to be practiced for years or decades. The mission became how to get the warfighter to be highly effective in an extremely short amount of time. This lead to the creation of new patented blade design which draws perfectly on a person’s instinctive fighting stance and punch. Patent US D713,923S.
No new stances or grips to learn.
No drills to learn and master.
When holding the blade, nothing changes; except your ability-level and confidence in blade work.
- Traditional blades run perpendicular to the forearm. The Regiment Blade design allows for straight wrist allowing for a more powerful strike.
- Intuitive design allows the user with little to no training to be highly effective.
- If you can throw a jab, cross, hook, or uppercut you already have effective blade skills.
- Appendix or hip carry, the blade is drawn from sheath like a pistol.
Fixed blade is precision machined from 8Cr14MoV, with black titanium nitride finish. Grips are injection molded with squared surface edges to help prevent grip from twisting inside your hand. The sheath is injection molded featuring black oxide coated stainless steel fasteners for tension adjustment and a black titanium nitride coated stainless steel belt clip.
