It's that time again, SHOT SHOW! While I am getting to loath Las Vegas I still love going to Shot. This year we set up a custom knife for the guys at DSA. Teaming up with a couple of Illinois companies, Black Rhino (kydex makers) and Trident Defense (custom firearms coatings and mods) we produced the leading look for this years limited edition package for DSA - The Hades Package.
The knife is our standard Mk2 Cholera with a finish we started offering last year, the Black Stone Wash. While the finish is touchy to balance and produce on a production line on a big knife we decided to offer this finish for the next year. Will thinks the look is a perfect antiqued finish for a good balance between the tactical black everyone loves and the patina feel of an old tool. The Kirinite handles are really cool and make the knife a true custom.
Everyone at shot who saw the entire kit put together were all hot and bothered. Trident did a great job with the red and black distressing battle worn look. We outfitted the sheaths in Carbon Fiber with red rivets and the red bone bead is designed to look like the operator kept a souvenir from the last demon he slayed while battle his way through the underworld to ultimately take out Hades.
The Hades kit in all it's glory in the DSArms booth. This entire kit is being offered as a limited edition purchase from DSArms Inc. Till next year...
