For over a decade, WILSON TACTICAL® the knife and tool division of WILSON COMBAT® has brought the finest in quality edged tactical tools to our discriminating clientele. For 2009 we are raising the bar and will be offering a limited collection of handmade knives by some of today's premier tactical knife makers without the long wait typically associated with special ordering a custom edged masterpiece.
These newly designed knives featured in the new CUSTOM ALLIANCE will be few in number, and will quickly become a valued centerpiece of your collection. These offerings will typify the WILSON standards of extraordinary quality, classic design and unmatched value.
After the success of our first Jason Knight collaboration, the Rogue Knight Bowie, the award winning Master Bladesmith has developed a special Damascus pattern-welded steel for the discriminating Wilson customer. The Gunmetal Damascus is an unbreakable blend of 1084 and 15N20 carbon tool steel with an elegant gray patina, welded together under extreme heat and hand forged to the exact shape of our exclusive Rogue Knight Pattern. This blend of metals is breathtakingly beautiful, has dramatic cutting ability and is virtually indestructible. Damascus steel of this kind is individually produced in a very time consuming process, as a result we can only offer five of these special knives. A stainless steel guard and ancient African Blackwood handle add a distinctive contrast for the "Dark Knight". Blackwood is a durable, elegant wood typically used in high-end woodwind instruments. A Lance Parrish custom leather sheath accompanies each knife.

Jason Knight - ABS Master Bladesmith
Jason Knight of Harleyville, SC is one of the top fixed blade makers in the world and is currently rated a Master Bladesmith (MS) by the American Bladesmith Society. There are fewer than one hundred knifemakers who can lay claim to this title. For almost a decade, his tactical bladeware has been typified by excellence in design, sole authorship and unmatched cutting performance and quality. Knight specializes in heavy duty tactical and combat bladeware-fighters and Bowies are his intense specialty and in that arena we believe he has no peer. Jason is also an instructor in bladesmithing and has built knives for collectors and operators across the globe. He is also an avid shooter and outdoorsman.
