Half a century after he served, designer and veteran Austin McGlaun discovered his uncle won the Silver Star at Point Du Hoc. “He was such a quiet professional,” McGlaun explains, “I never knew anything about his war service until our local paper did a story about him when he turned 80.” To honor his uncle, McGlaun designed this colossal karambit fixed blade knife. With the help of Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical, it’s been perfected as a mission-inspired eye catcher from the tip of the recurved blade to the thumb ring at the end of the handle.
As a part of the Forged By War® program, McGlaun’s design, matched with Ryan’s expertise, makes the Du Hoc™ a powerful tactical carry. An ominous 5” carbon steel recurved blade—sharp on the nose and the belly—is a dependable companion in a self-defense situation. A thumb ring sits proudly atop the textured G10 handle for an unbreakable traditional karambit-style grip.
With an intentionally-designed knife comes a secure, customizable sheath. Crafted of tough glass-reinforced nylon, the ease of access and safety of draw is unmatched.
With a history like this one, the Du Hoc™ was practically born on the front line.
The Du Hoc™ knife manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $135.00
