For 2012 we are raising the bar and will be offering a limited collection of handmade knives by some of today's premier tactical knife makers without the long wait typically associated with special ordering a custom edged masterpiece.

These newly designed knives featured in the new CUSTOM ALLIANCE will be few in number, and will quickly become a valued centerpiece of your collection. These offerings will typify the WILSON standards of extraordinary quality, classic design and unmatched value.

The "Panthera Fighter" by David Broadwell

We are pleased to announce the availability of our latest Wilson Combat Custom Alliance from the peerless hand of David Broadwell, the new Panthera Fighter. Using some of the most unique materials and finest craftsmanship on earth, this "Big Cat" will be a unique addition to any collection of fine handmade knives.

The blade of the lightning-fast Panthera Fighter is hand ground and finished from ELMAX stainless, a Swedish powdered metal "super" steel with amazing toughness and wear resistance that also takes a flawless hand-satin finish. The contoured handle is likewise unique and is masterfully crafted from a block of rare and beautiful Hawaiian stabilized Koa wood. Koa is a tough wood and often exhibits chatoyancy, an optical condition when wood grain exhibits a shimmering three-dimensional character. Hand textured titanium pins add a high-tech, rugged accent.

The premium leather sheath for the Panthera Fighter was custom made by Lance Parrish of Southpaw Leatherworks, who is quickly becoming recognized as a master sheathmaker.
