TAD Strider SMF Knife was the first blade in over 60 years to be issued to a Marine Corps unit, and the first tactical folder issued within the USMC.

• Made from CPM S30V, the blade has great edge retention while still being easily maintainable in the field. The blade is fit with a thumb hole opener as well as aggressive jimping that runs along the thumb ramp and the butt of the folder.
• A forward choil allows you to have greater leverage by choking up on the knife or take advantage of increased stability when doing fine pointwork.
• A heavily contoured full size handle allows you to evenly distribute your hand pressure for control.
• Strider’s signature Digicam finish is etched onto the blade. This process serves to hide scratches accumulated from use and enhances protection from the elements. The flame-striped titanium frame is built with black hardware pieces that completes the austere aesthetic of the SMF.
• Distinct TAD characteristics include a three-quarter swedge and laser etched logos.

• Behind the Scenes with Strider Knives
Strider Knives is devoted to developing edged tools designed to survive use in the harshest of conditions. The company was founded by and is currently operated by former military personnel. Their backgrounds enable Strider to assess requirements in diverse fields, ranging from the average line soldier/marine through special operations, law enforcement and hunting to commercial diving, and then build a product that meets and exceeds the requirements in each of these fields. Specializing in custom and production knifemaking, Strider is legendary for their incredibly rugged designs.
