Wilson Combat has teamed up with journeyman Bladesmith Scott McGhee for its latest knife offering: The Rover fixed blade.
McGhee is known for handcrafting rugged cutlery products that are both beautiful and functional. He specializes in creating high performance knives out of carbon tool steel and high quality stainless steels.
All of McGhee’s knives are heat treated, tempered and tested to guarantee an extremely durable work of art capable of holding an edge that most production blades simply cannot match.
The Rover is one of McGhee’s high-performance fixed blade knives made from hand ground O1 carbon tool steel with a black parkerized finish and full tang construction. It is a mid-sized tactical/bushcraft knife designed to be nearly indestructible in normal use with an edge fine enough for any hunting or tactical/survival chores.
With its Rover’s scalloped Micarta handle stays comfortable even when wet or oily and the handsewn sheath will evoke the fine leathergoods of past generations. The exposed butt can be used as a striking tool or even a caplifter in a pinch.
