Extrema Ratio 25 years: Misericordia Desert
Extrema Ratio presents a new version in Desert color of its Misericordia tactical knife, adopted by the 4th Alpine Paratrooper Regiment
The Extrema Ratio Misericordia Desert preserves all the characteristics of the famous Misericordia model adopted by the 4th Alpine Paratrooper Regiment and is derived from the commemorative dagger made for the 140th anniversary of the 4th Alpine Regiment and 70th anniversary of the institution of Alpine Paratroopers.
It is a fixed blade tactical knife meant for those circumstances in which the knife has to be extremely light and compact. The new desert coloration makes now available on this model a tone in line with the needs of most modern operative units.
The blade is milled in Böhler N690 steel, heat treated to 58 HRC, is 118 mm (4.64”) long, 4mm (0.16”) thick and has a plain edge. Knife weight is just 87g (3.1oz).
The blade has a spear point profile, with a stone washed fnish, 4 mm tick and with a full length fuller that makes it even lighter, with a false double edge for ¾ of its length.
The knife’s polymer grip flows smoothly into the ring, topped by a skull crusher point that allows the use of martial arts techniques and grants a very solid grip on the knife.
It has the trademark Extrema Ratio scallops near the front for better grip and is secured to the tang through a screw. In this version the grip is in Desert color.
Being a knife designed and intended for professional use, high relevance has been assigned to ease of carry, access, and extraction in case of need. The knife is secured to the sheath by a fast release safety that can be easily reversed for left hand use.
The high impact nylon sheath is also in desert tone and is very versatile: two adjustable loops allow the user to fit it to M.O.L.L.E. systems allowing fast extraction in a tactical scenario.
An optional Kydex sheath can be purchased separately, with two Velcro strips that allow carry between ballistic vest and magazine pouches. This sheath can also be attached to a belt by Belt-Clips to be purchased separately.
