836. Parachute knife
The previous post in my blog was about a popular, extra-popular military model: Soldier 2008. Today’s knife also was developed for Army’s purposes. It’s quite an interesting model because there is not too much information about this model anywhere yet.
Looks like this was developed as prototype and was presented on several military expositions over the world in the middle of 2018, but it’s not in real production yet. Accordingly, to some pictures from such Army Shows, this model has a variety of scale designs, but with a very minimal number of tools: just serrated one-hand blade (like on Hunter‘s knives) and Phillips screwdriver on the back.
Model, which I bought, (probably) issued to the Indonesian Army Special Forces SAT81 Paratroopers (thanks, Jaya, for information!), their moto ‘SIAP SETIA BERANI‘ printed on the scales (it means ‘Ready Faithful Brave‘, if I’m not mistaken)
Anyhow, I’m glad to have this unusual knife in my collection, it’s a unique one, do you agree?
