The Knife shown above has been sold. If you like the design, don’t worry! A similar knife can be hand-crafted upon request!
Named for the Greek God of War, the original Ares was a special commission piece designed as a smaller version of the Summiter. Lopping off over an inch of blade length from its larger counterpart, the Ares is a much more practical close-quarters weapon, yet still maintains its tool functionality.
This knife is part of the Operator Series. The handle utilizes a very simple, yet practical and effective 550 para chord wrapping. The ergonomic design lets you comfortably choke up tight on the blade for precision applications or grip it back further for chopping or fighting. The exaggerated thumb ramp allows for a comfortable and controlled full forward extension and the flared pommel provides an excellent thumb and index-finger seat in a reverse grip. The end of the handle can be used as a pry-bar, large, flat-head screwdriver, or just a solid pommel for hammering.
As most knives in the Operator Series, the Ares comes with the ‘Operator Sheath’. This sheath is designed for maximum versatility in carry options. As always, my sheaths are hand-stitched and sealed for water resistance.

– To Be, Rather Than to Seem –
The Operator Series is the culmination of my drive to build a series of knives that just plain work. The ergonomics are designed to maximize comfort and usability in a variety of grip positions. The primary difference between the knives in this series is only their size. Each model features very similar ergonomics and balance.
Much of the evolution of this series has come from the feedback of actual military and PSS Operators who have used these blades in the field. Whether your a member of the armed services or just an avid hunter or outdoorsman…these knives will be an indispensable part of your gear!
