SEARCH AND RESCUE SERIES
Overall Length: 10.875 in
The STS-5 is a design that we developed at the specific request by members of the U.S. Marine Corps Force Recon. The face and nature of Warfare in the last 10 years has changed. With encounters becoming face to face and chest to chest it has been time for some new strategy and some new training of Elite Units. The use of a knife as a weapon has really been mostly phased out for all U.S. Armed Forces. Without going into specifics on the actual training that has been adopted and is in use, there is now a need for a knife that is compact while still having enough blade to reach vitals and stout enough to deliver enough energy to pierce to those vitals. The STS-5 fits that need.
Note that the handle slabs are
contoured and the palm swell is more forward than on a Bushcraft knife or
a Hunting knife. Each STS-5 is supplied with a set of handles. Here is the S-T-S-5 in Reverse Grip with the Butt leading.

Here is the New Sheath for the Sts-5.
It is Kydex and has been molded to be
Ambidextrous. The knife can be inserted securely Blade Up or Blade down
without any change in dismounting the sheath. It is Both Tec-Loc and Molle Compatible.
This sheath was supplied by Blade Rigs.
