Gunner-12 Custom Knife
The BlackHeart Gunner 12 is a heavy duty all around combat and survival knife excelling at bushcraft, and utility work and specialized for tactical Military and Law Enforcement applications.
The blade is designed to be an extension of the hand so that it cuts well in any position. I made it extra thick/tall to make it easier to baton through wood and for incredible strength. The distal taper makes the tip ridiculously strong and the hand ground Honzukuri Convex grind is full height so it glides smoothly through whatever it happens to be cutting without any snags. The finger choils are deep and shaped to stop all unwanted movement in every direction, they essentially lock the knife into your hand as long as you make some kind of fist. The grip is designed to be comfortable in any position Hammer, Saber, Modified Saber, Filipino, Reverse Grip, Ice pick grip, there are endless possibilities. You can even move your hand back and leave the first finger choil open for improved length for the Saber grip or just for extra leverage and length for chopping. The scull crusher/ Talon works very well in any position as well. The BlackHeart signature pattern on the handles is a diamond pattern in the palm for superior grip and multi directional lines in the front, providing grip and not being too aggressive while using the knife for long periods of time.
