Chris Reeve PAC Pacific Combat Knife, 6 Inch Blade, Tactical Nylon Sheath. Continuing the proud tradition of Chris Reeve Knives honoring elite military, the Reeve/Harsey collaboration - the Pacific - is the civilian version of a knife created to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of 1st Special Forces Group. Based in Ft. Lewis, WA, 1st Group's theatre of operations is Asia and the Pacific, so the name Pacific has been chosen to honor the home and work place of these fine soldiers.
The Chris Reeve Pacific fixed blade knife features a high performance CPM-S35VN steel blade. A glass breaker/striker at the back of the handle is convenient and effective in an emergency. Grooves in the micarta, mirrored on the tang, provide extra grip, especially for gloved hands. The Pacific comes outfitted with a heavy duty Spec-Ops Combat Master nylon sheath.

I've had mine for about 5 years and still love it. If you have the use for it, git it. Don't listen to people that complain about the price because you get what you pay for, if you want the quality of a 50 dollar knife, fine, get one but if you want great steel and workmanship, get one of these, I prefer the better stuff in life and this one fits in just fine.
This product is awesome because it is very balanced for the size of the blade. The quality is what you expect from the price. It is very sharp coming out of the box. Oh also the sheath is a multicam color that comes from Chris Reeve and does not have the front pouch on it. With all this in mind I enjoy the product and I enjoyed the customer service from Osogrande! Props to you all.
I own the CR Pacific and the Green Beret 7.5 Combat knives and they are both superb! The Micarta handles are awesome--the most comfortable I've ever had the pleasure of using and they are textured perfectly to give a great grip but not to abrasive at all. all of the edges of the full tang handle are rounded to improve comfort. Both of these knives are well-designed, efficient, heavy-duty, beautiful and super sharp. I highly recommend and shipping from OGK was quick.
One of the best combat knives ever made! I love everything about it. You will be pleased with it.
This is a beautiful knife. The 6 inch CPMS30V blade is extremely sharp and the Gun-Kote is of perfect quality. The knife is very comfortable and a must have Chris Reeve knife for collectors.
This Reeve/Harsey collaboration produced the Pacific which was created to pay tribute to the 50th Anniversary of 1st Special Forces Group. Two of the great knife makers today did a spectacular job overall. The full tang blade is made from CPM S35VN steel and includes a double row of serrations on both sides of the blade which has the KG Gun-Kote. The steel is strong and durable. It also is easy to sharpen like the CPM S30V steel which is well liked b/c they lowered the Rockwell hardness in the smelting process. Genius! The handle is made of micarta with grooves in it for a terrific grip. The jimping and a bit of a palm swell keep this knife in place in your hand when in use. It is perfect for combat or survival/utility situations. The blade can be choked up on for more precision work in front of the finger guard. This knife is highly recommended for anyone looking for that one perfect knife to have w/o a doubt and it doesn't hurt that it comes with a Spec-Ops Brand sheath. If you are looking for a knife and get this one you won't be sorry; it will live up to your expectations!
"I Love this knife. It is the perfect length at 6 inches. The GBK was a little larger than I wanted and the GBK 5.5 was a little less. This one with it's 6"" blade is perfect for me. The quality of this knife is excellent as are all Chris Reeve knives. I use this knife for backpacking, hiking and general camping use. It is a great survival knife and serves double duty as a self defense knife- light weight and perfectly balanced. I like the finger position on the blade so you can choke up for detail work. The CPMS30V blade came VERY sharp right out of the box. The sheath is awesome, it has room for my Exotac XL Nano Striker, a small map compass and my sharpener as well as some other necessities. I highly recommend it!!!!!"
"This knife is even better than I expected. I wanted a mid-size knife (5-6"" blade) for camping and hiking and this knife is everything I wanted. It is full tang with a thick blade and serrations, and it's scary sharp. The scabbard is well made and I like the storage pouch for my survival goodies. The knife is a superb piece and worth every penny."
