Overview
"The XM-7 Knife has been developed over 4 years of hands on experience and feedback from USMC Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technicians both at home and in multiple combat zones.

It provides a solid tool to pry, hammer, chop, probe and stab. The Tanto point allows most of the damage from the abuse of digging to be focused there and leave the main edge for whatever else may arise. The Asymmetrical, chisel style grinding allows for multiple and varied angles of attack when prying in tight quarters.

The G-10 Grip is CNC machined to provide maximum grip, and control, with or without gloves. The G-10 material is virtually impervious to all of the conditions that an operator can survive in. The wrapped construction shields the tang from the elements and minimizes the chances that corrosion is able to build under the handle. Mint condition.

This knife is no longer being made by the maker. Very Rare.

ABOUT THE MAKER
George, Les
I began making knives in 1992 and have been fortunate enough to have worked with and learned from some of the best knife makers in the world. The maker most responsible for my progression is Stan Fujisaka of Kaneohe, Hawaii. I had been making knives for several years before I met Stan, but he opened the door to a new level of knife making for me and shared his considerable knowledge with me freely. I will continue to refine my craft and to build on all that I have learned so far. I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 1997 and spent over 10 years in its service. I served as a heavy equipment mechanic, an Embassy Guard in foreign lands and a Senior Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician in many of the world?s garden spots. I have trained in Explosive Dynamic Entry, Advanced Access and Disablement, Improvised Explosives and Devices, Weapons of Mass Destruction, Close Quarters Combat and many other technical and tactical skills. I have deployed to, lived and worked in Laos, Thailand, North and South Korea, Peru, Mozambique, South Africa, Iraq and many other places in between. Since my departure from the Marines I have worked as an Unexploded Ordnance Technician clearing unexploded munitions, from projectiles to land mines from old training areas. As an EOD Team leader in Iraq, I oversaw over 300 EOD responses and over 100 Improvised Explosive Devices where rendered safe. All of these experiences have given me a unique view of how I think knives and tools should be designed, made and used. I look forward to many new things during this new phase in my career. There is a lot of work left for me to do to get ready for more work to come. I thank you for your interest and look forward to seeing you out there at a show soon!
