The New Drakon from DoubleStar

DSK100 Drakon

The DoubleStar Corp may be best known for building guns, but the company is also involved in the knife business. One of its latest offerings is the Drakon Blade.

The Drakon Blade is a fixed blade design that is the brainchild of Robert Cabrera. Cabrera is a weapon designer and martial arts practitioner, two areas he likely drew on in the design process for this knife. The Drakon Blade is part of the company’s Hydra Edged Weapons Line. Cabrera is also the director of the Edged Weapons Division at DoubleStar Corp.

DoubleStar uses a scalloped blade with beveled edges. According to the company, this allows the Drakon Blade to cut through heavy textiles with little effort. The Drakon Blade has a finger loop that is designed to increase the ability of the wielder to control the blade while cutting.

The blade is 8.25″ long with a width of 1.625″. It has a Dragon Hyde coating on the blade for increased durability and corrosion resistance. The Drakon Blade comes with a sheath made of Kydex.

These new knives are made in the United States and carry a suggested retail price of $177.21. The Drakon Blade is one of five new edged weapons introduced by DoubleStar this year. Other weapons include knives, an axe and machete style weapon that has a passing resemblance to a khukuri knife.

    “The blade is 8.25″ long with a width of 1.625″.”
    The blade is about half that and the other value usually is called blade height.

    “Dragon Hyde coating”

    Okay I’ll bite. What’s Dragon Hyde coating? Last I heard dragons were an endangered species.

      Matt black powder coating.

    I guess that’s unique. If I collected useless knives I’d buy the knock off of this for up to $15, maybe even $20 bucks.

    You got to be fuller than a tick on stump liquor. I’m anti-finger-ring to begin with and that one has hardly any grip behind it so I think it will not get force efficiently from the thumb and dump a lot of force into the finger, without much fine control. It’s like the opposite of a pukka knife.

    That or he read too much Batman comics 🙂

    What is this crap? Not a firearm, not even a good knife.

    Looks edgy.

    I checked out the new DoubleStar knives on their website and all I can say is that they are silly knives sold at silly prices. Hard pass on the lot of them.

  • Paul White

    Man, that thing’s so mall ninja it should come with a gift certificate to the food court.

  • Saint Stephen the Obvious

    The bible talks about this guy and his knife… a fool and his money are soon parted.

    Too expensive for me.

  • foofoo

    $177 for this? Maybe if I was a leprechaun I could swing it by digging into my pot-o-gold. Perhaps Patrick will chime in with a review.

    $177 for this? Perhaps Patrick the leprechaun can give us a review.

  • Madcap_Magician

    Wow, an 8.25″-long piece of 1095 carbon steel for only $177? At least TOPS puts nice handles on theirs.

    If I ever wanted a flat batarang I’ll know where to go

  • Is this Bud K or TFB?

  • Sianmink

    Well that looks easy to sharpen and maintain.
