Combat Utility Blade (C.U.B.), Black/Gray G10, Wilson Combat / Steve Woods
"COMBAT UTILITY BLADE" (C.U.B.) Fighter from Steve Woods and Wilson Combat
A new custom collaboration between renowned knifemaker Steve Woods of Rock River Iron and Wilson Combat.
When we saw this practical, tactical fixed blade knife we knew that we had to offer it exclusively to our customers. The overall quality and field-proven design of the Woods-Wilson C.U.B. is first rate!
The C.U.B. fighter is a mid-size belt knife that is small enough for everyday tactical use but big enough for most larger field and tactical chores. The matte bead blasted 154-CM USA made stainless blade steel is an excellent choice for a knife to be carried close to the body as it is rust resistant yet holds a superb edge. 154-CM was originally designed as jet turbine blade material and it handles the rigors of everyday knife use extremely well.
The machined 3D G-10 handles come in your choice of Black, Green, or Black/Gray in the Wilson Combat Starburst pattern with double inset medallions from Woods and Wilson. The aggressive Starburst pattern locks your hand in a firm grip even when wet or oily. The C.U.B. is as effective as it is handsome.
The C.U.B.’s practical tactical drop point blade shape is useful for all belt knife tasks and thin flat grind zips through most tough materials with ease and is easy to re-sharpen in the field.
A custom kydex sheath with Tek-Lok universal belt attachment is included.
Steve Woods has made tactical fighting knives for military and special operations teams for many years-now is your chance to try his latest combat-utility blade, available only from Wilson Combat.

|Excellent blade for the size. G-10 handle is outstanding. Knife should have come with paracord as shown.|

|I have been wanting a nice fixed blade knife and now I have one. I spend a lot of time in rural areas of western PA and I always have my Glock 30 on me. Now I carry my Glock and my Steve Woods CUB. Very comfortable, tough and looks great. Exactly what I was looking for!|

|Although this compact knife is only eight inches in overall length and was designed specifically for tactical and general purpose use, it can readily handle tasks normally reserved for larger and heavier knives, which is the mark of a great knife.
The CUB has several features that contribute to its amazing versatility.
First, the knife is constructed from a solid piece of 154CM stainless steel measuring 4.5mm thick. 154CM is a high carbon stainless that is durable, relatively easy to sharpen and resists corrosion. The G10 handles provide an incredibly secure grip, even when your hands and the knife are wet, oily or dirty. The flat grind of the blade provides a strong spine and a cutting edge that is both durable and thin, allowing one to make fine, exacting cuts. The cutting edge is sharp, but not so sharp that it will lose its ability readily. Its been designed to be sharp and stay that way through serious use. The belly of the CUB has also been well-designed, offering the user great versatility by serving as an effective skinning knife without sacrificing its ability to pierce and cut extremely well. Finally, its drop-point blade allows the user to pierce and cut with surgical-like precision. Additionally, the knife is lightweight and well balanced, making belt carry a breeze. By removing the belt attachment from the Kydex sheath and installing Wilsons belt loop, one can wear the knife inside ones waistband for an extreme degree of concealment and/or security. The handles can be removed with a Torx driver, making the CUB even slimmer for ultra tactical
I would like to see thumb notches or other serrations on the spine beginning in front of the handle, extending toward the tip for an inch or so. During heavier cutting and chopping operations, thumb serrations would allow an additional amount of purchasing ability.
I have an issue with the spine’s ramped peak, located just in from of the handle. My thumb tends to rest atop this peak and I find it somewhat uncomfortable. Although I feel the peak enhances the CUB’s overall physical appearance, its crest is rather pronounced, hence the discomfort. This feature serves absolutely no practical purpose, and I found it to be an annoyance while performing heavy duty tasks. For light and medium duty tasks, however, the peak was never an issue of concern. If the CUB were capable of handling only light-duty jobs, I never would have mentioned this aspect. I believe the cause of this problem is simply that the knife is rather small in size and I have relatively large hands. I allowed some people with smaller hands to hold and examine the knife and the majority stated that they would not expect to encounter similar issues.
Summation: The CUB is a compact knife with a lot of heart; it can tackle a number of jobs traditionally reserved for larger knives. Its perfect for its intended advertised purpose: tactical and utility work. For seriously heavy duty field applications, Ill use my Wilson/Murr Model 1 or 5. For everything else, the CUB shines like the sun.|
