Proeliis—Latin Meaning for the Battles
This knife is called Proeliis, Latin meaning: for the battles. The handle scales, or grips, are made of a material called G-10, a high-pressure fiberglass laminate. It is created by stacking multiple layers of glass cloth, soaking in epoxy resin, and compressing the resulting material under heat until the epoxy cures. This unique pattern is a very grippy texture without being irritating.
The scales are removable if damaged can be replaced. All Radelow Blades are a full tang design, meaning one piece of metal runs from tip to butt.
Beneath the removable handle, scales are two holes, machined to allow the concealment of six to eight 1/10 oz American Gold Eagle coins. Special Operation Forces know, or should, the value gold possesses to people around the world. One small gold coin can change the course of a crappy situation.
The finish on the blade is Cerakote, over CPM S35VN stainless steel, makes for a blade that will handle many inhospitable environments.
