The M9 Arghandab river is what came of a request for a last ditch knife by a friend of mine. He’s a Green Beret with third group who has had multiple tours in the combat zone. He wanted a small version of the Gasconade river to have on him at all times in case he had to ditch the rest of his gear while evading the enemy.
    In honor of him and what he does for our country  I let him name the knife. He chose the name Arghandab river due to the fact that he operated in and around the river valley during one of his tours to Afghanistan. I’m proud to offer this knife due to the history behind it and
the personal connection to a friend that it has. 
  Plus it’s a pretty darn useful knife. F.Y.I.  This is a neck knife sized knife. In other words it’s pretty small. And if you want to stay within it’s intended purposes I suggest 3/16” steel with a varied or half height grind. It was intended to be tough more so than a carving or detail work
knife. Small and tough to get you out of a jamb when you don’t have your regular belt knife on you. 
    The M9 full tang comes standard with a thinner than normal handle, for lightness and for less bulkiness in case you'd like to wear it as a neck knife. If you'd like a normal thickness handle, just ask.
