The Chris Reeve Green Beret 7” is the official combat knife of the American Special Forces. It's a no-nonsense 'tool' designed by famous knifemaker and designer Bill Harsey, and made by Chris Reeve Knives.
The Green Beret is a knife that's been made to be used: efficient, tough and strong, just like the Special Forces troops it was designed for. It is made from one piece of S35VN powder steel with a durable KG Gun-kote anti-reflection coating. The nice hollow grind is typical of Chris Reeve Knives' excellent workmanship.
The handle is made from micarta. This incredibly strong, lightweight material is perfect for handles. It feels great in hand and provides plenty of grip. And micarta still offers enough grip even if it gets wet. The textile fibres in the material expand a little, which creates additional texture. Because of the handle's size, even users with large hands will be able to get a good grip. The Green Beret is also easy to use while wearing gloves.
The Chris Reeve Green Beret comes with a fantastic nylon sheath. It has a plastic insert and is also MOLLE-compatible. You can tell straight away that this sheath is well thought out: the inside of the plastic insert has a layer of fabric to make sure the knife won't move inside the sheath.
