escort carbon fiber daggers 450x337 Carbon fiber knives

The Escort series of carbon fiber daggers feature aerospace grade woven and uni-directional pre-preg. The outer surface of the blades use a 3k 2×2 twill weave fabric, while the inner surfaces are made up of 12 layers of uni-directional fiber. The actual handles are made up of a total of 36 layers of carbon fiber. All of the carbon fiber knives are 100% made in the USA.

Please keep in mind that carbon fiber does not offer a super sharp blade on the knife, it’s not really meant for cutting, but rather for self-defense/stabbing. The blade does not hold an edge, but can be “sharpened’ by simply using a sandpaper or even a sharpening stone.

At first I thought this was ridiculously silly but the idea has grown on me somewhat. You just have to not think of them as knives, really. They’re more like ultra-lightweight, computer-modeled, aeronautical-grade prison shanks.

They’re expensive, $65-85, but you could pretty safely pocket these single-ounce space shanks and forget about them. They’re no substitute for a knife but there are some things you can do with these that you can’t do with a knife. Like, uh, take one through a metal detector.

Probably some other stuff they’re better at, use your imagination.
