MIL-TAC Knives & Tools, Wylie, Texas is one of many young companies delivering superb products in direct support of military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The company has a small but well diversified product offering that includes pistol grips (made from G10), tactical defense pens, fixed blade survival and combat knives, daggers, folding knives and rescue knives.
While at Blade 2011, I had an opportunity to take a close look at two of their designs. The Combat-Survival CS-2Ti, a beast of a survival knife, magnificently implemented in Titanium. The handle was broad and hand-filling wrapped around a broad full tang blade made from Titanium. Although I prefer steel, for ease of sharpening and maintenance, the CS-2Ti is extremely useful in an EOD role.
