The new Attleboro Knife is a 100% American made tactical military use minded tool with sleek practical feature styling. It was developed by Boots and Berets (dba Attleboro Knife Company) and manufactured by Millit Knives in Meridian, Idaho. The Attleboro combines quality manufacturing and unique design features to commemorate the quality of service and ultimate sacrifice made by MSG William B. Hunt (http://www.sfa25.org/page4.html) and all military members involved in Operation Attleboro during the Vietnam War. Keeping in mind what every soldier might need to aide them in their service, a lot of thought and attention to detail went into this project to create the best knife and tool possible.
The steel is cutting edge CPM S35VN at a lighter .150” thick design to reduce weight and bulk for comfort when carrying. Cryogenically treated during heat treating the knife is 55-57Rc to maintain flexibility and edge retention for a wide variety of user needs. The butt of the knife features a beveled glass breaker not only aide those needing to break glass but to score and break through places that use polycarbonate for safety windows.
The spine contains 1.5” of gimping to maximize grip with or without gloves for best control. The spear point supported by its aggressive styling swedge is a perfect combination to its CNC machined hollow grind. The uniquely angled serrations located on the right side of the blade help reduce snagging when using to tear through items such as rope or webbing.
The black phenolic laminated handles are ergonomically designed to accommodate large and small hands and have a CNC machined texture to maximize grip in wet and dry applications. The Attleboro is finished with a beautiful Graphite Black CeraKote finish and hair popping sharp edge.
Included with every knife is a kydex sheath and a commemorative MSG William B. Hunt Memorial Chapter coin and certificate. To ensure a continuing effort to help those serving in our military, Millit has allocated a percentage of every sale to the Warriors Promise Foundation.
The Attleboro looks great a true survivalist knife I like the story behind it too I plan on getting one soon
I’ve got an Attleboro straight (non serrated) in route as im typing and i am stoked to get it within the next couple of days! Hard to imagine they went with a thin blade stock and a hollow grind yet from the demonstrations i saw these can take whatever you throw at it… Also as a combat veteran myself I can truly appreciate the story behind them, AIRBORNE
