Named after the waterbird which spears its prey and stabs its enemies, the Darter multitool packs practical utility and tactical potency with bronze age vibes and high character.

The bird's beak acts as a punch, marlin spike, and is penetrating in the pommel strike.


The Darter's all steel construction is deceptively comfortable when gripped in a variety of ways, including classic knife fighting grips and, if you choose, using the central ring guard to master the rapid and secure transition between hammer, thrust and ice pick grips. The Darter is so thin and ergonomic that it can be held and free up the hand to manipulate complex objects--even drawing, firing, and reloading handguns. A very adaptable tactical tool. It's very good to have options.

This unique ring guard also functions as a bottle opener so you can enjoy a cold one after a day vanquishing your chores and enemies.


The short blade on the long streamline handle is practical for utility cutting applications, makes for a very quick draw, and provides the reach and penetration depth matching that of much heavier fighting knives.  


  • Hand forged from two steels--O1 tool steel blade is forge welded with mild steel

  • Combination of propane oxidation and brass rubbed finish gives a wholesome, handsome appearance

  • Thin ergonomic design enables skilled hand tasks while holding the Darter--including the transition from blade to handgun.

  • The sub-2-1/2" blade is below most blade length regulations

  • Over 7" from ring guard to blade tip

  • Length: 12-1/2" to 13"

  • Weight: 6-7 oz.

  • Each hand forged darter is unique

  • Comes with a kydex blade cover carry system for pocket carry or tucking inside the waistband.
