Small, sleek, hidden. You won't see this opening Gambit coming...


/ˈɡambɪt/ - an act or remark that is calculated to gain an advantage, especially at the outset of a situation.

The Gambit is an answer to the need for something ultra lightweight, small and sleek. Aiding conceilability while remaining perfectly functional.

The Gambit is a pikal style knife with a short blade, just under 2.5″ with a slight, subtle hook, which although small is perfectly adept at defensive work. The single edge blade creates a naturally reinforced point which will still penetrate with ease while remaining strong enough to deal with harder materials.

While the naked frame handle may seem like it has limitsd grip, it is surprisingly good in the hand. The edges have been softened to ensure comfort, while the finger choil adds some security. The holes are countersunk to soften the edges, but also provide surface area, adding grip once you squeeze down on the handle.

The naked frame also conceals very easily due to its ultra slim profile, and it has the added benefit of being ultra lightweight.

The Gambit comes with a standard Kydex sheath, but can also be purchased with a Pocket Hook or slim fold-over style sheath.

The handle is entirely free from scales or any additional materials. The holes add lightness but also act as a grip, creating a friction point when gripped tightly. The naked frame handle is as slim and sleek as it gets.

High quality heat formed Kydex Sheath with either a Soft Loop mounting or metal belt clip. Soft Loops and Clips can be interchanged as desired by the user, and be mounted in either left handed or right handed configurations. The standard sheath can also be set up as a Static Line mount.
