BORN FOR VERSATILITY

THE AMTAC BLADES NORTHMAN PACKS A LOT OF POWER IN A POCKET-CARRY PACKAGE

A great knife may not be great in every situation. The rural workman’s fixed blade with gut hook may look out of place in the glass-walled boardrooms of the big city, and a city slicker’s 3-inch gentleman’s knife with fine alabaster scales may not stand up to the farmhand’s daily job duties. Likewise, it’s even harder for a blade to fill the bill of being a competent woods companion and a trusted battle blade. However, the Amtac Blades Northman, like its Viking namesake, can just as easily handle cutting through mountains and fjords on route to razing and fighting in the town square, as it can slice through cardboard boxes in the office mailroom.

The Birth of the Northman

Created by Bill Rapier, a sought-after shooting instructor at his school American Tactical Shooting Instruction (Amtac), the blade is intended to replace a regular EDC (everyday carry) knife. Since his courses often include the integration of pistol, carbine and blades, he was in search of something that would also fill a combative role.

The Discreet Carry Concepts clip on the Northman Firesheath locks into the seam of the front pants pocket.
