A flint blade fit for the 21st century. Archaeologists from around the world have unearthed flint blade artifacts that date back a staggering 1.2 million years. So when Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical set out to craft the Utsidihi™ /ewt-c-dee-hee/ fixed blade everyday carry, he didn’t stray far from the form that has proven its worth for millenia.
Ryan often seeks inspiration from his own backyard in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Historically home to the Cherokee Native Americans, Ryan has found many flint blades throughout his outdoor excursions. So it was only right that he gave this lightweight, highly versatile fixed blade a name that pays homage to the people that were there first: Utsidihi is a title earned by a young warrior. The black stonewash 3.5” blade and handle are built of tough, high-carbon stainless steel. The handle is wrapped with paracord that can be removed and replaced to best fit your kit. The glass-reinforced nylon sheath is built for scout carry, but is versatile enough for MOLLE gear or a pack.
