DSPEDCM2: EDCM Everyday Combat Monster Fixed Blade - Kydex and Leather Sheaths
Derespina Custom Knives
All Derespina knives are consistent in profile and style. However, they are all handmade pieces so you will see minute variations from one to the next as Rich likes to keep it interesting and "mix it up" with different grinds and embellishments. He primarily uses G10 for handle material for its tactical, lightweight and durability properties but can use other materials such as exotic woods or Micarta. Nothing textures quite like G10, nothing!
The steel you find most often on a Desperina custom knife is 154CM but on occasion, he will use D2 or S30V. Ultimately any steel will react and perform excellently with proper ergonomics for the user, proper bevel and edge geometry for cutting ability and edge retention. The difference between most steels comes down to maintenance. Some are more corrosion resistant than others and require less maintenance which is preferable in his philosophy.
The EDCM Everyday Combat Monster is just that...an absolute monster. It combines a pistol grip handle with a dual finger ring for a combat knife unlike any other. It is probably the most secure knife in your hands on the market - on par with a karambit - yet it is much more versatile as you're not stuck with a hawkbill blade. It's a full-size clip point Bowie design that's as menacing as it is functional. The G10 handle scales are milled for additional traction and comfortable in both the forward and reverse grips. The knife includes both leather and Kydex friction-fit sheaths depending on your intended use or personal preference and we love that. Handmade in the USA.
