Mad Dog Knives
Mad Dog Knives is a custom knife making facility headed by Kevin McClung, a former Senior Materials Scientist at the American Rocket Company. Mad Dog Knives is based in Nephi, Utah. Mad Dog Knives made the fixed-blade knife known as the ATAK, used by Naval Special Warfare Groups 1 and 2 after the "SEAL Trials" of 1992. Mad Dog Knives are typically made from selectively tempered, hand ground O1 Tool Steel with a hard chrome plating to protect the blade.
