III Arms Push Dagger
This is Prototype #2 - how badass is our Chief Engineer?!
We've made the aluminum knuckle unit thicker, to .5". The shaft is .25 steel. We also made the finger holes a bit larger.
Don't worry about the finish - we hit this one with a quick coat of Rustoleum, just for the sake of it. Production units will be Duracoated, and available in several colors.
There are a few small tweaks we are going to integrate, but we'll be in full production soon. Our unit is not an identical replica. We've made a few improvements.
Sheath: Will be Kydex - unless we can find a suitable pouch on the market from Rothco or Condor, etc. If you are a sheath-smith and want to collaborate, drop us an email - K@IIIPercent.com.
Contest: CavMed and Andy have claimed units 1 & 2. They got close enough to win.
Our #3 production unit will be awarded to the Patriot who can tell us specifically what WWII unit or organization was issued these push daggers, AND send us a picture of an original.
Yes, an original pic is available online.
**PS: Let us know if you and/or your team would be interested in a down & dirty edged weapons course to complement our Combatives & Garrote courses.
