Continuing with Loops on our Knot of the Week series in HD, today I’ll be going over the Handcuff Knot.... View ArticleView Article
Update: Thanks to everyone who entered! The contest is now closed and the winner has been contacted. Keep checking back for more contests in the future!
Mil-Spec Monkey recently released a collaboration knife with KA-BAR and was nice enough to send us one to give away! Made from SK5 steel with a paracord wrapped handle, the MSM-KB-001 Knife has an overall length of 8.5″ and blade length of approximately 3.5″. This knife can be worn on a belt or mounted on PALS webbing with the included Malice clips.
This is a large and solid tanto style blade that is built to take a lot of abuse. MSM mentions that a classic cord wrap is used to increase grip on the handle but that you can easily cut it off and custom wrap it yourself. You may remember from a previous Knot of the Week article that we show how to exactly do just that.
“All kinds of grips are possible with the thumb ramp particularly forming great to one’s hand in a reverse blade forward grip. The upper / top end of the blade comes unsharpened since knife laws between states get complicated there, however can easily be sharpened if desired. Being made overseas we understand not everyone will be happy about that, but there are several reasons why: The main one being we looked into USA options, but it was going to take a lot longer and cost a lot more for no real change in quality. In the end we wanted this blade to be available to common joe and actually be used like a tool instead of paying a load for and then ending up trapped in a safe.”

I've never had a knife I could call my own. I'd be so pumped if this if the first knife I get. Anyhow, good luck to all!
I live about less than 30 Miles from Mil-Spec Monkey. If the package is being shipped from Mil-Spec Monkey HQ, Can I have the option to pick it up onsite instead? I like the crew they have at the store.
@rancher1 This knife will actually be shipping from ITS HQ. Good luck in the contest though!
I bought the kabar msm knife and was wondering about the sheath. How do I install the sheath and are there any other sheath options.
