Benchmade 176 Special Operations Combatives Program Dagger

Greg Thompson designed this fixed blade knife for Benchmade based on his experience with Special Operations Combatives Program. He is the Chief instructor and Founder of the SOCP which is the first program with this designation to improve the fighting ability of all U.S. Army Special Operations Forces.  A major emphasis on its creation was to fight terrorism effectively in a post 9/11 world. 

Benchmade is known for their high quality craftsmanship and this Dagger combines a devious form with ultimate function given its finger loop for a quick pull and immediate ready grip. We don't cover knives often and only like to mention those that stand out as providing an easy definitive use for the task at hand. The 176 SOCP Dagger comes complete with a Black or Sand colored injected molded sheath with a quick clip carry.

We have provided the full brochure below with Specs and Dimensions. Going along with the SOPC theme, you can also include the trainer shown in the product photo for use in tactical combat instruction. This seems the safer route no matter what your trust issues may be.
