The MP1—designed by Master Sergeant Grady Burrell.—was tested and exceeded the standards set by “Masters Proven” for fixed blade edged weapons. Master Proven is a group of Senior Military retirees that review products for Military and Law Enforcement personal. As a boots-on-the-ground solider, Grady’s vision was to build a low profile, very well balanced knife while he was on a overseas Military Tour. He deigned this knife as a tough every day carry for all around survival purposes. “When designing a knife the balance is a critical component of the overall design when building a purpose driven, edged weapon for fight or flight situations” Grady said.
Our MP1 sheath was built by First Spear who has the 6/9TM technology that they use on the knife sheaths.
The 6/9™ Modular Pocket Technology is not only completely backward compatible with legacy MOLLE/PALS style load carriage or armor carrier platforms, but also offers significant weight reduction over traditional MOLLE/PALS pockets. Due to the flexible nature of the attachment straps and tighter tolerances when compared to traditional MOLLE/PALS, 6/9™ pockets actually mount closer to the body and conform tighter to the platform. Already adopted by Professional Users within the joint US Special Operations Forces community, this system provides many advantages over the traditional MOLLE/PALS system and can further help facilitate transition into the 6/12™ Modular Pocket Technology where the ultimate in weight savings, signature management and tight fit can be achieved.
