The Eklipse is a design born with its own attitude different from my other designs such as the XM-18. I designed the Eklipse with more of a linear approach with regards to handle and blade metrics. With the blade deployed the line from the blade tip flows through to the center of the handle allowing the blade tip to sit centered in your grip. This allows for a really light comfortable feel when using the knife in any task. The double finger grooves and sloping underside of the handle combine to give the Eklipse an ergonomic grip. The thumb ramp with properly sized jimping ensures a solid grip when using the knife in a fencing type grip. As with my other folder models the new Eklipse has a steel lockbar insert and of course comes with my new Triway pivot on board!
The Microtech Jagdkommando is a unique knife that has been milled from a solid piece of stainless steel! The blade's three sharpened edges twist as they come to a point while the grooved faces feature drilled holes that flow seamlessly together. The hollow handle has a waffle texture that twists, mirroring the blade motif. Threaded end cap with lanyard hole. This Jagdkommando is stonewash finished.
To house the blade, Microtech developed an aluminum "sheath" cover that screws over the blade. The cover has a belt loop with model, manufacture date and serial number. This is the limited production version of the popular Marfione custom.
Jagdkommando is the name of the Austrian Armed Special Forces Operations group, an elite group.
