The Ontario Ranger TFI is the epitome of what a combat blade should be. Big enough to get the job done, but not so big that it gets left behind. The Task Force Infidel was designed by Justin Gingrich of Ranger Knives a U.S. warfighter himself who knows exactly what troops can really use in a knife and what is just "fluff." The TFI is all business; the quarter inch thick, full-tang American 5160 Carbon Steel is ideal for a heavy-use blade, it takes and holds an edge and will stand up to the toughest tasks. The drop point blade works well as a utility blade and would be highly effective when used in a defensive role. Removeable Micarta slabs provide a high traction grip even with wet hands and the jimping on the spine provides control when using a thumb-forward grip. Small enough to strap to your kit and big enough to handle any task the Ontario Ranger TFI is the perfect knife to carry in harms way.
