M8 Alamo Scout

The Alamo scout knife is kind of an answer to a lighter more nimble knife that has a more traditional look of some of the old hunting knife patterns and coffin handle bowies. I combined the profile of the old knives with my signature severe drop point design and a forward slanted
guard (on the early models. It may become standard on future models). It’s a neat little knife to use and can be combat tough or a wicked slicer depending on the options you choose.
The handle is a bit narrower than most of the other models so this one is more suited to small hands, although the bigger handed among us can use it just as well.
This knife is my tribute to the brave men known as the Alamo Scouts. Operating in six to seven man teams these men were the
hardest of the hard and suffered training that was almost as severe as combat itself.
They stalked behind enemy lines from 1943 to 1945, killing Japanese soldiers in their own back yards. The scouts were the first of
their kind, the forerunner to modern special forces units. Their success and lessons learned would be the basis of recon tactics for decades to come.
In 108 recorded missions, the Scouts killed more than 500 Japanese soldiers without ever losing a single scout killed in combat. This knife is named in their honor. God bless them all.
