Brand Debuts First MKC Tactical Fixed Blade, The Wargoat

Frenchtown, MT (July 11, 2024)/OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Montana Knife Company, the premium, American-made knife brand founded by Master Bladesmith Josh Smith, is proud to announce MKC Tactical—the brand’s newest premium product line—crafted for duty, designed for survival. Montana Knife Company reveals its MKC Tactical line with the introduction of its robust Wargoat fixed blade knife.

Crafted with precision and fortified with uncompromising strength, the MKC Tactical line is designed specifically for duty and survival. Created to instill confidence in the most dire situations, MKC Tactical knives are constructed with premium, USA-made materials, allowing users to operate in the field at their maximum abilities.

The first knife within the MKC Tactical line—the Wargoat fixed blade knife—combines MKC’s innovative design capabilities and trusted craftsmanship to deliver a feature-rich knife that thrives in the most hostile environments.

“We’re extremely proud to debut the MKC Tactical line with the introduction of the Wargoat fixed blade,” said Josh Smith, Founder, CEO and Master Bladesmith at Montana Knife Company. “MKC Tactical is a project that has been in development for a very long time. We have relied on guidance and feedback from active-duty military members, veterans, and law enforcement officials to create a comprehensive line of products to meet their needs.”

The Wargoat’s versatile drop point blade shares the same proven geometry as MKC’s ultralight Speedgoat models, paired with premium edge retention and corrosion resistance with Magnacut Stainless Steel. A low-drag Cerakote finish eliminates any chance of giving up the user’s position with light reflections. The blade’s non-reflective coating also helps the Wargoat avoid snagging during quick deployments in the field.

The defining trait of the Wargoat is its distinctive ring handle. This ring quickly secures the blade into a can’t-fail reverse grip in quick access scenarios. The ring automatically guides the user’s hand into the perfect position for the most confident grip, while preventing dislodging, even in wet conditions. Additionally, the Wargoat’s skeletonized handle design is constructed with rugged G-10 material to provide a lightweight, reliable, and ergonomic final product.

“The MKC Tactical line is overbuilt and designed with the most premium materials and components available to be able to stand tough in the most intense and dire scenarios imaginable,” Smith continued. “We’re honored to offer a complete line of products through MKC Tactical to support the men and women who serve and protect our country every day.”

The MKC Tactical Wargoat fixed blade knife ($325) is available in multiple color options, including: Black / Black, Black / Coyote, Black / Olive Green, Coyote / Black, Coyote / Olive Green. The Wargoat knife comes with a custom-molded Kydex sheath to provide a rattle-free, secure carry that offers multiple carry options and positions.

All MKC Tactical knife products and components are proudly made in America, and every blade is hand-finished in Montana. Like all Montana Knife Company products, MKC Tactical knives are backed by the brand’s Generations® Promise, which provides free sharpening for the lifetime of each knife product.

The Wargoat will be available for purchase Thursday, July 11 at 7:00 PM MST exclusively sold direct-to-consumer through Montana Knife Company’s website. For more information about Montana Knife Company and its products, please visit www.montanaknifecompany.com.
