Wilson Combat has grown over the years and offers a wide range of products – from top tier 1911 pistols and AR-style rifles to ammunition and accessories. One of the company’s expanding lines is blades.
Recently, Wilson Combat added a new automatic folder to its catalog, and it is called the Eagle Automatic. The new knife was designed by Les George and is built by Pro-Tech Knives in Artesia, CA.
The knife has a 4″ blade made of 154-CM stainless steel with a black finish. The blade thickness is measured to be 0.125″. The blade has a plain edge and jimping on the spine. The handle is made of aluminum and has the Wilson Combat starburst pattern. According to the company, the blade is opened via a coil fired spring system and it has a button lock. The overall length of this knife is 8.5″, and it weighs in at 4.8 ounces.
Wilson Combat advises this knife is regulated by 15 U.S.C. §§ 1241–1245, and will only sell these to members of the US military, law enforcement, and fire, rescue and EMT personnel. The American Knife and Tool Institute has a good summary of the federal law associated with these knives.
These knives carry a retail price of $279.95 and are available for order now.
