The Chimera is a stalwart of our stable, a larger Pikal knife that follows our design philosophy of being extremely robust in order to dominate the encounter.

The Chimera suits the user with a larger hand and has been described as a “bull dozer”,  featuring an extremely robust point designed to penetrate through tough materials and keep going. Like other Pikal knives, the Chimera has an ergonomic handle designed to index well and prevent snagging when drawing under duress from concealed positions.

The edge of the Chimera has been flat ground by hand to create a fine cutting edge that cleaves easily through organic soft tissue. The blade also features an indent on the ricasso, acting as a placement for the supporting hand when doing double handed drag cuts.

The Chimera is completed with a hand pressed Kydex Sheath which secures the knife for daily carry. The Sheath is fitted with a Discreet Carry Concepts 5.1 HLR clip for left or right-handed inside the waistband carry, but can also be fitted with Soft Loops for outside the waistband carry if the user prefers.

The Tier 1 version of the Chimera is the most utilitarian option available. It is made from N690 steel, with a freehand ground blade which is Cerakoted matt black for a durable and maintenance free finish. N690 is a proven high carbon stainless steel which can be used with confidence. We offer the Tier 1 Chimera in either a G10 or Carbon Fiber handle option, both of which are hand finished.
