Gerber 06995 Silver Trident Double Serration
About This Knife
- Fail-safe, hybrid grip design
- Double-edge clip point blade for stress-withstanding penetration
- Non-reflective black blade coating to reduce glare
The Silver Trident was originally designed as a combat knife for America's Special Ops soldiers. The engineering of this knife was led by Gerber's best knife designer, William Harsey, and Chief Watson, one of the original plank owners of Navy Seal Team Two.
What makes Silver Trident stand out from all other combat knives is its handle because of its advanced design and sophisticated material (Hytrel). The handle is a dual mold of two types of Hytrel. The inner layer, which hugs the tang, is made of an extremely hard version to provide strength. The outer layer is a softer, textured version to ensure superior grip and control. This high tech material is capable of withstanding heat, UV light, and chemicals. Stainless steel was used to create the butt cap which can be utilized as a hammer.
Aside from its amazing handle, the Silver Trident has a double-edged clip point blade made from heat-treated 154C stainless steel that has a hardness rating of HRC 59-61. Moreover, the blade has a non-reflective black blade coating to reduce glare and prevent corrosion. With this blade, you get a knife that's extremely powerful, durable, and adaptable. It also has excellent edge retention.
