Battle Blades And TOPS Put The Picatinny To Good Use!
Battle Blades’ MP4 Wolfhawk with Picatinny sheath is one of those products that make you scratch your head and wonder, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Designed by pilot/outdoorsman Kelly Van Orden in conjunction with TOPS Knives, this is the first knife system designed to mount on a Picatinny rail for a variety of mounting options including, but not limited to, a rifle stock. The Battle Blades injection-molded sheath (with 2-inch mount) is also adaptable to both Molle and neck knife configurations, making the Wolfhawk one of the most versatile knives on the planet!
Wolfhawk knives are available in optional clip-point or tanto blade styles with black linen Micarta or para-cord-wrapped handles. The full-tang blade is ground from 1095 high carbon steel and features TOPS’ black-traction powder coating. The clip-point blade version is the most versatile of the pair. This knife is just at home on the side of an AR-15 readied for close combat backup as it is mounted to the side of a synthetic-stock hunting rifle for skinning game. The tanto is more widely recognized as a fighting blade but can serve for field purposes as well. Van Orden also runs the Battle Blades Foundation, which helps veterans financially through a variety of programs including “Weapons for Warriors,” which helps veterans obtain sporting rifles and other sporting gear. The retail on the Wolfhawk system is $169.95, but TOPS has it available on their website for an introductory price of $135.95. (Note: you’ll be directed to the TOPS site through Battle Blades’ ordering link and TOPS’ web address is also listed below). Like choices? The versatile MP4 Wolfhawk system is the way to go!
