WHEN CHECKING OUT, PLEASE LEAVE PREFERRED BLADE SHAPE AND SCREW COLOR AT THE SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS (SHEEPFOOT, SPEARPOINT or DROPPOINT; SATIN,AMBER or BLUE screws)
The Astra Standard Issue or ASI in short is the knife that fits equally well in a colonial marine´s medic bag on the USS Sulaco or on an architects desk for sharpening pencils and cutting out scale models.
Since launching the ASI in December I have experience an enormous interest in this fixed blade concept and have since developed more handle patterns and are working on ideas for various limited runs like this G10 project.
This limited run in 6 colors of G10 is the first time I am offering the ASI handles in G10. The handle pattern is called "ARA" Besides adding a striking color it reduces the weight even more to be hardly noticeable. 2 handles have been made in each color.
The ASI is a small utilitarian fixed blade built in a modular design that allows to interchanges blades and handles of your liking and need. Transports and stays safe in a small kydex sheath that allows for dropping the knife in the bottom of a jacket pocket, ride on your belt or maybe installing on the hul of your kayak. In short the perfect little blade for whatever you need it for.
This time around the G10 version is offered in the following colors: Grey, Coyote brown, Green, Orange, black and blue. The blade comes in a choice of three different shapes: Sheepsfoot, Spearpoint and Droppoint.
The kydex sheath will fit each blade shape. In time I will be offering both blades and handles for sale individually. The handle has weight reducing, grip enhancing milled slots. The blade attaches via two 6/40 titanium screws. The blade is hand ground flat in RWL34.
I am taking preorders for your choice of blade shape and handle color. The orders will be made and shipped out within 4-6 weeks.
Please note that if you order other items together with the ASI they will ship together when the knife is finished.
