M48 is the expert in designing and crafting tools that will see you through a mission, whether you’re at home or on foreign shores, and the Conflict Cleaver definitely fits the bill! The 2Cr13 cast stainless steel, cleaver-style blade is 3 3/4” wide with a 6 1/4” blade and it has a black oxide coating and weight-reducing thru-holes. The tough, textured handle scales are injection molded nylon with 30% fiber and have a precisely ridged, EDM surface finish, which lines-up with the ridges on the blade. The full-tang blade has thumb notches and extends into a karambit-style open-ring pommel with fighting spurs. The 11 1/4” overall tactical cleaver knife fits like a glove in its specifically designed, heavy-duty Vortec belt sheath.
