In the modern war scenarios the knife is becoming less of a weapon and more of a field tool. The Tank was born with this focus: a robust tool that is suitable for any field work. To keep the weight acceptable we preferred to keep the length reasonable but to further extend and bend the handle. This allows clasping it better by being able to change the balance and the angle between the wrist and the edge.
- Blade: AISI D2 tool steel, vacuum heat treated, HRC 58/60. 5,8 mm thick.
- Surface finish: stone washed or “Aspis” coating.
- Handle: full tang with removable light brown scales, made of Phenol resin, impregnated into a cotton canvas.
- Sheath: Cordura® sheath made in Italy by Vega Holster®. MO.L.L.E. compatible.
Big, Bad and Bold!

I love this knife, fits my hand perfectly. (Large glove size).
Great ergonomics, lots of ways to hold knife for different applications.
Sheath is ok, I would've preferred kydex.
Viper is a great brand, very good finish.
Just get one!, you won't be disappointed!
Great in hand!

A very solid knife, I am biased as every Viper knife I own was my favourite knife at one stage.
I'll write another review in 6 months, for an update.
