The Obscura remains hidden, always there, always ready.


/opˈskuː.ra/, `{`ɔpˈskuː.ra`}` - From Latin, meaning Shadowy or Indistinct

The Obscura has been a long time project and has been through at least three different iterations since its inception. The concept behind it being that of a covert tool.

While many popularly refer to these tools as “Non-Permissive Environment” tools, for overcoming security checks for metallic objects, this isn’t actually the reason behind the Obscura’s birth. The Obscura was always designed to be an extremely lightweight, easy to hide and cheap option for a defensive tool.

It does have the added benefit of being entirely non-metallic, which means it can pass many security checks, however we do not recommend anyone do this.

The G10 Obscura is primarily a pointed tool designed for stabbing. Made from relatively thick G10, the “Blade” is beveled only to help create the distal taper and triangular cross section of the point. Though the edge is blunt compared to a steel blade, it could still be exploited on soft tissue.

The Obscura comes with a single handle option. A simplistic Silk Ito cord wrap, and a completely non metallic static line kydex sheath, allowing the user a few different ways to carry.
