With a 7″ blade, the ATAK is the foundation of our product line. Having been the only knife in history to win a sole source purchase justification by the USN SEALs, and the winner of the 1992 SEAL Knife Trials, the ATAK’s bona fides are unimpeachable.
- The ATAK is a relatively unspecialized combat utility knife. If you only have the option of one knife, this is that tool. Mad Dog® Knives are hand made in America, of American materials.
- Our blades are hand ground from pristine, vacuum remelt, selectively tempered Presco O-1.
- Our handles are machined and hand ground from our proprietary FR4 composite.
- Sheaths are drape formed by hand using American made and sourced Kydex 100, a premium, aerospace grade thermoset plastic.
Our knives are Berry Amendment compliant.
