Sicarii, the "Dagger-Wielder" from the Roman "Secare". The secretive Jewish sect who adopted the cloak and dagger...

SICARII

The Sicarii (Modern Hebrew: סיקריים siqari'im) - meaning the ``dagger wielders``.

The Sicarii is a blade which takes a heavy influence from Persian blade styles, in specific the gentle upswept point which culminates in a reinforced point.

Persian style knives from history were known for the integral reinforced point, which was intended to help pierce the armour of the day. The Sicarii offers this feature as well, despite the fact that we are no longer likely to encounter armoured foes, it can be quite surprising to some how well ordinary clothing materials can do at stopping edge and point weapons. The Sicarii is adept at penetrating even tougher materials like leather, and the reinforced single edge point can be quite devastating against harder organic materials like bone as well.

The Sicarii blade is offered in two variants, the single edge with a reinforced point, and a double edge variant which offers the user some more versatility as it can be used much more effectively in reverse grip techniques.

The handle of the Sicarii is ergonomically shaped and very secure with both a finger choil, as well as a distinct hook over the butt of the handle. Whether you choose a synthetic scale for the handle, or something with a bit more flair, the Sicarii looks good and more importantly works flawlessly for those wanting a forward grip fighter that also has the versatility to be used in reverse grips.

The Sicarii comes with its own bespoke hand pressed Kydex Sheath. Due to the size of this model we would recommend a full size Kydex Sheath, however Fold-Over versions can also be done if you prefer. We also offer Pocket Hook sheaths for more unconventional carry methods, and Static Lines for mounting onto gear or equipment.

The Sicarii is finished with great care on our Japanese Water Stones, honing by hand a mirror polished edge which will cut cleanly and effortlessly.

Pocket Hook Kydex Sheath
High quality heat formed Kydex Sheath designed specifically to be worn inside the pants pocket. The sheath is formed with a double hook so that it can be drawn either forwards or backwards. 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. 

Static Line Kydex Sheath

A fully formed, lightweight Kydex Sheath which is designed to be tucked into the waistband or carried in a pocket. 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.
