 The Mercenary is the latest in the T.Kell lineup. We drew from our experience making world class blades, took your input and created a blade that is beyond any found elsewhere. Starting with the Mercenary and moving to all our products is a new addition to our heat treatment process that makes the 80CRV2 steel preform light-years beyond what has been previously known in the industry. In true T. Kell style we have taken our 'no BS just blades' approach to another level with the Mercenary and created a blade that is extremely versatile, perfectly balanced, and durable beyond belief. The 5.5" long. 1.375" wide spear point blade features a false reverse edge that makes piercing a breeze. We have integrated a dual purpose choil that not only aides in sharpening but doubles as a finger well for a choked-up grip when you need agility and speed from your blade for up close blade work. Whether you have wet bare hands or need heavy gloves you will find that our famed ergonomic contoured handle, the integral guard, and heavy jimping are perfectly shaped and placed to keep your hands exactly where they belong, on the handle and off the blade. The T. Kell Grenade Grips are not for appearance (although they look incredible), they were designed for maximum grip, contoured to prevent “hot-spots” and angled to pull the blade into your hands. We are known for our blade 'flow' with perfected balances and the Mercenary does not disappoint. This blade feels light and fast while it is a full tang thick steeled beast up for any challenge you can throw at it. When you pick up the Mercenary, you will know it was designed and built to go to work. The Mercenary is at home in the back woods, on the battlefield, in your toolbox and anywhere you need a blade that you can trust. Backed by our zero questions asked 'Life of The Knife Warranty'

The innovations don't stop with the Blade. We took extra time to create a sheath that preforms beyond any other and addresses issues that others have failed to take on. We slimmed the sheath down as much as possible to reduce the real estate taken by the sheath and used thicker .080 Kydex for rigidity. Whether on your plate carrier or belt line the sheath takes up minimal area compared to any other sheath on the market. We integrated a jimped thump ramp to aide in one handed removal the blade without having to jerk it from the sheath, this also reduces fumbling with complicated locks or snaps like other sheaths have and gives a tactile spot that you can feel blind if your in the dark or need to keep your eyes forward. There is a slide-lock integrated into the sheath to lock your blade in to prevent disarming or falling out when the blade is inverted on your gear or on a jump. Simply slide the lock up to lock or down for standard retention. It features a knurled knob for easy one handed operation. The sheath also features a drain hole for water and dust, and has spacing and rivets for common after market clips and tie off points for 550 cord lashing.
