New tactical fixed blade designed by war veteran, ready for the front lines.

CRKT® is releasing the Rakkasan™ tactical fixed blade. Designed by Austin McGlaun of Columbus, Georgia with the Forged By War® program, it’s inspired by the duties of his brothers and sisters in arms who are still abroad

Rakkasan, is reminiscent of the WWII paratroopers from the 187th infantry regiment. It’s the Japanese translation of “umbrella for falling,” because they were completely unfamiliar with the American combat tactic.

Though its name harkens back to another time, it’s prepped and ready for a 21st century battlefield with an SK5 carbon steel blade and a powder coated finish. The deep belly shape is multi-functional and serves just as well as a utility blade as it does a backup defense tool.

The strong, G10 handle has been molded into an optimally ergonomic shape and features three holes for carrying versatility. The Kydex® sheath comes equipped with paracord.

McGlaun served in the 101st airborne division in Iraq, and as a street cop in Columbus. If there’s anyone that knows that a knife has to work both as a weapon and a tool, it’s him. He’s applied his skills as both a combat vet and a knifemaker to create the Rakkasan™. That’s not to mention, a new way to bring his fellow soldiers home.

The combat arena is laden with unexpected variables. The Rakkasan™ serves to address them all.

The Rakkasan™ manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $125.00
