Bob Kasper designed the Scorpion to be a larger alternative to his well known Companion , while still maintaining the comfort and concealability of its smaller cousin. Designed to be the ultimate balance between size and effectiveness, the Scorpion features a longer blade with a hollow ground and tapered tang, keeping the knife well balanced in the hand. An unsharpened swedge travels the full length of the spine, terminating in a steep, serrated thumb ramp. The deep finger groove and flared pommel provide instantaneous indexing and a secure grip. Like the Companion, the Scorpion is a renowned fighting knife, favored among discerning users and special mission units worldwide.
Handle : Designed to provide superb control both during the draw and in use, the Scorpion’s 3D sculpted handle is an ergonomic work of art. Control during the draw means proper indexing from the initial grip, through unsheathing, to guard or contact. The low-profile handle features a deep, single finger groove, palm swell, pommel flare, and a pinkie hook which locks the knife into the hand and eliminates indexing problems.
A modified Persian-style S30V blade featuring a recurved primary edge and an unsharpened swedge, the Scorpion’s aggressive blade profile provides excellent tip alignment in both forward and reverse grip.
Carry : A perfect companion to AIWB (appendix inside-the-waistband) pistol carry, the Scorpion is designed to be carried inside the waistband with a rearward cant along the pelvic crease. It disappears against your body and is comfortable and ambidextrously accessible even when seated. The kydex sheath comes with a S hook, J hook and belt loop attachments to offer multiple carry options to meet the need at hand.
