We brought the Tradecraft CANK to market as a means of offering an effective and reliable 100% handmade full-custom blade at an affordable price. Based off the tried and true EDC CANK (unquestionably one of the most effective EDC blades ever designed or produced). Thinner, lighter, and more streamlined than the original EDC CANK, this Tradecraft version features supreme concealability, extreme toughness, exemplary ease-of-carry, quick access, and incredible functionality through superior design. Tradecraft CANKs are basic yet effective purpose driven blades.

We produce this purely functional variant of our legendary EDC CANK design from top quality materials with a minimalistic approach. Tough, hard, and durable 15n20 steel that’s professionally heat treated in house ensures a lifetime of carry. The cord wrapped handle (available either in bulletproof black Kevlar or the tan sisal/paracord combo) provides exceptional grip in all conditions and will not warp, swell, or crack in extreme temperatures. Both versions feature a powder-coated finish that’s one of the toughest knife coatings available today.

The “Night Raid” edition is the all black version recommended for environments where harsh chemicals, extreme heat, or hard impacts are a concern due to the protective properties of it’s Kevlar Para Aramid handle. The “Modern Warrior” version was designed for covert operations as its constructed entirely from natural colorway low-viz materials with a camouflaged sheath system.

These knives represent what we believe to be the first ever truly effective deep cover blades publicly available at an affordable price. They are very thin, light, and sharp. They are tools, not toys, and like anything else they can be dangerous to the user when proper use or carry protocols are disregarded. They are not designed for prying, metal to metal contact, carry without sheath, or throwing. Each knife is individually handmade and therefore will differ slightly from the pictures.

Tow is one one is none

I picked up the warrior cank, packaging was excellent.
Ergonomics sharpness and carry options are excellent.
Warrior edition is great for night time high visibility.
I was lucky enough to pick up the night raider for daytime use.
For my first high quality knife purchases bone tactical knives are a no-brainer.
Not a one regret

very nice knife

When you are as pretty as that lady on the Beach in the Photo, she should not be carrying a knife, that lovely Lady should be packing a .50 cal Desert Eagle..

Almost Perfect Neck Knife

Heavy neck knives can literally be a pain in the neck. These knives are incredibly light weight and strike a nice balance between being thin/concealable and robust/durable. I would NOT use this Knife to pry with, but I also wouldn't hang a knife around my neck all day that could be used for prying. This knife excells at cutting and slicing (the tasks knives are intended for) and although I wouldn't try stabbing a cinder block with it, I also wouldn't be worried about breaking the tip due to stabbing into wood or bone. The reason why I say this is almost* the perfect neck Knife is because there are trade offs with everything and this very well designed knife is no exception. The handle is very comfortable, ergonomic, and handfilling relative to it's size (I wear XXL gloves). This is achieved in part due to the paracord wrap. In my experience, with my body type, the handle will print a slightly under a t-shirt and even when wearing a light jacket. However, that is a trade-off I gladly accept because most people out in public aren't going to think anything of it, and in an emergency I absolutely want the confidence that this handle gives me. Don't get me wrong, it's not that the handle is thick by any means, but it is thick enough to print under light clothing, so it's something to be aware of before entering non-permisive environments. If these knives are available at the time of you reading this, I highly recommend buying one. You won't regret it.
