Carcara Dagger and Carcalito Neck Knife

The Carcara Dagger is about the only fighter I make at this time. Carcara is the name of a South American eagle that has a reputation for coming out on top of any fight it gets in to.

The Carcara has an overall length of 10 1/2 inches. The 5 1/2 inch BG-42 blade is hollow ground to within about an inch of the tip and from there it is flat ground which gives a bit more strength to the most delicate part of the blade without reducing it's ability to pierce a target. The knife is light, weighing about 4.8 ounces.

The canvas Micarta(R) handle has an oval cross section so the blade can be indexed by feel. Holes in the handle work with the handle's contour to provide a very secure grip. The conical shaped pommel is very helpful when withdrawing the knife from a target and can also serve as a non-lethal striking tool. Red fiber liners complement the flat gray of the sandblasted blade and handle.

A number of carry options are provided which utilize the Tek-Lok(R) mounting system.

The Carcalito Neck Knife is also shown. It's overall length is 8" with about a 3 1/2" blade. The finish and materials are the same as for the Carcara but it comes with a neck sheath only.
