The STS-8 is a much larger version of the STS-5 Fighter. The STS-8 has a longer and wider blade to give more weight and heft for making deep slashes and cuts in close quarter encounters. The heavy blade balances more on the blade than the compact STS-5. This forward balance gives the STS-8 an advantage in slashing velocity for severing major muscles in order to incapacitate an opponent quickly. This is largest fighter we have made in many years, and is a powerful knife and new addition to the STS line of knives. The handle scales on the STS-5 and STS-8 are removable and interchangeable. This knife comes in 154CM, a powerful and tough steel that maintains a precise cutting edge. This steel is of very high quality, and we have found it to hold a very precise edge, and sharpen up quite quickly without any hassle.
The STS-8 is supplied with the leather STS-8 sheath.
