The Ti Fruit Knife features the Blink Grip fast draw handle, a design I developed to ensure fast deployment. This handle is ideal for emergency close-quarters combat (CQC) and self-defense situations, providing a strong and secure hold.

  • High-Quality Titanium:
Made from Grade 5 Ti-6Al-4V titanium, the Ti Fruit Knife combines lightness, strength, and toughness. This material enhances durability while keeping the knife lightweight and easy to carry. Grade 5 titanium is known for its resilience and is commonly used in aerospace, high-end sporting goods, and medical implants.

  • Handcrafted Quality:
Every Ti Fruit Knife is handcrafted in my small workshop. I ensure each knife meets high standards of quality and performance. This dedication to craftsmanship means you receive a knife that’s functional and unique.

I just finished a few tools with a neo tribal look:

tactical neo tribal knives

A custom tribal Dart and three pocket size Stop Switch push daggers that look like stone age hand made tools, all made from tool steel (O1 tool steel and 8670 alloy).

The Dart is a self defense tool that can be used as a palm stick or a kubotan:

Custom kubotan

The Tribal Dart shares its geometry with the Bladetricks Pocket Mini Gladius Dagger. However, its particular edgeless design is aimed at those specifically looking for a blunt self defense tool without cutting edges.

The Stop Switches (One Mini and two Compact versions) are three little pocket size, maintenance-free and intuitive self defense tools. Used as push daggers, the Stop Switches can easily be carried in the pocket as an emergency personal protection / last ditch tool.
