The NorthmanX is a small fixed blade knife designed to replace the cutting tool carried in your pocket. The NorthmanX is quickly deployable and rugged enough for backcountry use, and this blade is also great for combatives.
The newest blade in the Amtac Blades lineup features a 3.5 inch flat ground blade with a swedge starting 1.5 inches from the handle. This blade geometry allows for great thrusting ability and strength. The 1.5 inches of spine directly forward of the handle has a semi sharp 90° angle to facilitate better striking of a ferro rod and other backcountry tasks. The handle of the NorthmanX is 3 3/4 inches long.
The NorthmanX blade is designed primarily for pocket carry and comes standard with a pocket firesheath, but there will be belt firesheaths available as a separate purchase. Due to larger handle, the NorthmanX facilities a more solid draw stroke when deployed from the belt sheath.
The blade, firesheath, trainer, and storage sheath are included.
Please note, due to the slight differences in blade geometry between the Northman and the NorthmanX, the NorthmanX is not compatible with the sheaths for the Upgraded Northman.
