Cold Steel has tried to make their FGX Wasp dagger look and feel as close as humanly possible to their Drop Forged Wasp. While significantly lighter in weight, it still offers amazing piercing power and will glide through soft targets like they were made of butter! For cutting power, they have equipped both edges with their “grip and rip” serrations, so it will cut exposed flesh to the bone. Offered at a ridiculously low price, it’s a bargain you won’t want to pass up.
One of the most unique features of these knives is their handles. They are made from deeply checkered Kray-Ex (Kraton) that has been molded directly to the blade tangs. Kraton offers a superior, slightly tacky gripping surface that is unaffected by heat, cold, or moisture. It never rusts, warps, cracks or splits even in the most extreme environments.
It's light enough to be tied, tucked or taped just about anywhere on one's person. And, since it is impervious to heat, cold, moisture and extreme weather it is a natural to hide both inside and outside of your home. They can be hidden virtually everywhere from the hedges and flowerpots in your yard, to the refrigerator, bookshelves, and closets in your house. Keep one in every room of the house, from the laundry room to the bathroom shower! With violent home invasions on the rise a strategically placed Nightshade knife could save the day, and even your life.
The FGX Wasp Dagger self-defense tool also serves double duty as a non-magnetic EOD Mine Probe.
About the Nightshade Series: Black as a moonless night, silent as the grave... these are the qualities that make up Cold Steel's lightweight Nightshade™ series. Most are detailed reproductions of existing Cold Steel favorites and some are new designs representing the newest trends in high-tech, covert construction. Made from Grivory™-- the latest in fiberglass reinforced plastic, and stronger than even the super tough Zy-Ex-- they are UV and heat stabilized, making them impervious to the elements.
