This is a full tang combat knife with AISI 304 stainless steel bolsters. The design was intended for use by Other Government Agency ("OGA") personnel, but it is also good for civilian use. OGA-3 designates the handle design. The OGA-3 handle has a more relaxed rear lower quillon than the OGA-1, and was developed for a custom client. The Blade Steel is Böhler D2 Tool Steel. The swage is blunt and finishes slightly below the point for added tip strength. If you look at the line between the swage and the primary grind, near the tip, you will see that the curve up towards the tip on the two sides is not a perfect match so we are classifying this as a second and pricing it accordingly. The handle is ergonomically shaped for easier retention. There is gimping on both sides of the thumb rest.
We usually have one or two of these in stock, but they are available for custom order (you can specify the blade length, handle length, materials, finish, etc.). If you have questions about our inventory or wish to custom order, please e-mail us.
Things to Consider Before Ordering:
1) Check with your local laws to determine the legality of all items ordered. Seller is not responsible for any items seized by customs or other authorities and will not knowingly make shipments to countries where any items are illegal. By placing an order, you are representing that you are an adult, the product(s) ordered are lawful in your local jurisdiction and that you will use the products in compliance with all applicable laws. You accept full responsibility and costs for all customs fees and VAT. Seller will not replace or refund any item confiscated by local authorities or customs agents.
2) These are handmade. There will be slight imperfections on most handmade work commensurate with its pricing. Mr. Ali's highest quality/grade/difficulty knives generally sell for $300 to $500 through other venues with Collector Grade Butterfly Sword pairs selling for up to $1,595.
3) Plain Language Disclaimer: Knives are inherently dangerous. Glass breakers are also very dangerous to the user and should be used only in cases of life or death and with protective gear. Swords with sharp edges are for display only and should not be used for martial arts training. Even blunt swords are dangerous. You agree that you won't sue the Seller, designer or maker for anything related to using this product for any reason whatsoever and you (and we) really mean it!
