the Sever, a nasty little blade that lives up to its name despite its small stature...


/ˈsɛvə/ - divide by cutting or slicing, especially suddenly and forcibly.

The Sever has in its lifetime undergone quite extensive design revision to become what you see now. This compact defensive EDC knife was inspired by the famous Clinch Pick, but has evolved into something of its own merit.

The most notable design feature of the Sever is the handle. Though short and stout, its no less ergonomic and offers a secure grip while also being extremely compact. The blade and its point are slightly offset from the handle, meaning it does not handle like a traditional Pikal style blade, but is still rather adept at instinctive stabbing actions in reverse grip. The offset point also works very well for raking actions in counter-ambush situations – something which can be a very instinctive movement pattern.

The blade is offered in a few configurations. Single Edge Pikal, Double Edge, or a Single Edge Pikal with a Mune Ridge. A feature inspired by traditional Japanese blades which aids penetration on single edge points, without compromising the added strength and toughness that they offer.

Each Sever is sheathed in house by hand, with a bespoke Kydex Sheath pressed to fit the knife precisely for optimal fit and retention. A fold over style sheath is highly recommended for this model and makes for a very compact and easily concealable defensive EDC option.

Lastly, the knife is sharpened by hand on our Japanese Water Stones for a perfect mirror polished edge.

The hooks engage with the recess inside your pocket when drawn, leaving the sheath behind and the knife in your hand.

Disclaimer: The design of pocket hook sheaths is extremely general and designed to work with most pockets. How well it works with your individual pockets is unknown.

The sheath is supplied with a length of high strength micro cord which is anchored to your gear or clothing. When the knife is drawn the cord anchor will snap the sheath off the blade.

The Static Line sheath allows more flexibility in carry positions and allows the knife to be mounted on gear or backpacks much more easily.
