Introducing the Operator Series, Debuting with the Ops-Hawk

The Operator Series blades are the culmination of a quest to make a blade that preforms to the standard of the operations community. They were designed with a tremendous amount of input from several of our brethren in the Tier 1 community.

The Ops-Hawk is the first in the series. Based on a longer version of the incredibly popular Tanto blade from our Nighthawk. We don't just call it a handle, we call it grips because a tool of this caliber needs maximum grip. The grip was designed using our famous 'Night' series grip, we removed the ring, stretched the length to a full length grip, added a slight sweep to help you draw the blade and keep you locked onto it. The narrow grip allows for a full clinch of your fist to maximize blade control and retention The ergonomics are phenomenal, we took our time and designed it for multiple grips: forward, reverse, and both tip up and tip down pikal grips with the cutting edge facing the forearm. Hundreds of hours of design and testing produced a series of blades that are perfectly at home on your duty belt, plate carrier, CCW, and OWB. Clad in our proprietary Nickel Boron T1C (Tier 1 Coating), the world's toughest blade coating not only provides incredible durability, it adds a lubricity that make the blades fly through cuts. The addition of Nickle Phosphorus to the T1C adds a level of corrosion prevention to the carbon steel unequalled in the blade industry. The insane lubricity and durablilty you've come to expect from your NiB Bolt carriers on a blade! Why? Because it should've been done forever ago, we just did it first. 

The tanto blade on the OPS-Hawk is from our Nighthawk blade that has taken the industry by storm. With a tip designed for actual piercing, the swedge to aide in point driven work, a dead flat edge for extremely effective pressure cuts, and a true diamond shaped blade with a rigidity unseen in the tanto world, this blade is stout beyond compare. When your life depends on performance, the T.Kell Operator Series delivers. 

As with all T.Kell Knives, the OPS-Hawk will hold up and perform beyond any other knife you have ever used. Each knife is Marine Corps veteran designed, handmade, and tested to ensure it is exactly what you expect a blade to be. Backed up by our 'Life of the Knife' no questions asked warranty.
