Gear Panteao Cuts into the Knife Game with Battle Horse Knives Recoil Staff January 7, 2016 Join the Conversation Panteao Productions is known for their vast selection of high quality instructional videos. Recently, however, they brought out something sharp and stabby. The new MRTK from Battle Horse Knives is designed specifically to help you survive. Here's what they have to say about it: Panteao Productions introduces the new MRTK made exclusively for Panteao by Battle Horse Knives. It was developed with the combined input of Dan Coppins of Battle Horse Knives and the instructors from the Panteao Make Ready to Survive Series. The goal was to create a workhorse of a knife that could handle a wide range of uses and scenarios. The MRTK does just that and then some. “We were introduced to Dan by instructors from the Panteao Survival Series and I was extremely impressed with his work and attention to detail,” said Fernando Coelho, president of Panteao Productions. Fernando continued, “His no nonsense approach to knives and knife making inspired us to film a video on selecting a knife and during those discussions, the MRKT came about. I’m very happy with the way it came out. It truly is a beast.” The blade is made from 0-1 Tool Steel. It’s an oil hardening (cold work) steel that provides deep hardening and high toughness properties. It’s one of the most forgiving of any knife steel and produces blades of excellent quality. The MRTK features a full tang design for maximum strength and durability. The blade itself is a saber grind. That type of grind is known for being strong, heavy-duty, and good for handling a wide range of tough jobs. Everything from field dressing game to splitting wood, the MRTK can tackle it. You also get great control with the secondary convex edge of the blade. The spine of the knife has a 90 degree angle which is ideal for creating tinder or making a spark with a rock or ferrocerium rod. The handle is made from a combination of dark red G-10 and black Micarta, attached with brass & stainless steel Bird’s Eye Bolts and Heavy Duty Epoxy. The finger groove helps give you a solid and secure grip and the overall shape of the handle helps reduce the chance of hot spots in your hand after extended use. A 3/8” lanyard hole is perfect for paracord, leather, or cordage. To secure the MRKT and keep it within easy reach is the Kydex sheath with a leather backer. The knife is secured in place within the sheath with a thumb lock system. Pull the lock up and the knife is secure in the sheath. Push it down and you have access to your knife. The leather backer helps make your sheath quiet when moving around.
