A high-quality military combat/utility knife,[1] the "Stallona" knife is made by SharpWit, Inc., using a funneled bowie shape and a stacked grip with a finger ring on the pommel (though some models may lack the ring and the funnel).[2] Certain models may have a serrated top edge[2] while others also lack this feature like the ring funnel.[3] The edge is guaranteed by the company to remain sharp for over a decade of use![4]

Trench knife

Gameplay article:

The trench knife is a combat knife designed to kill or gravely incapacitate an enemy soldier at close quarters. It was developed in response to a need for a close combat weapon for soldiers conducting assaults and raids on enemy trenchlines during the First World War. This particular model was used by American soldiers during the Anchorage Reclamation.

Bowie knife

Gameplay articles:

The Bowie knife is a characteristic large-bladed combat and utility knife with a crossguard. The name is derived from Jim Bowie, a 19th century Texan revolutionary and frontiersman, whose legendary - and almost certainly heavily fictionalized - knife fighting skills relied on the use of knives of this particular design.[5]

Behind the scenes

  • The name of the combat knife in the description of Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics is a reference to Sylvester Stallone's role as Rambo in the First Blood series.
