Our upgrades to Master Smillie’s original design were the addition of the “Beek Bits” on the front of the tool’s head for anti-grapple, anti-kick, anti-punch, and to break off fingers that grab you. We added the “V” notches for maximum stabbing wound and a single large digit capture hole. We kept the standard lanyard holes but mounted them like Master Smillie’s “horizontal carry” capability. Most of our lanyards are fitted for vertical carry, but this one sits at the ready horizontally, which cuts the time by 50% for deployment. We also chisel cut the whole top part of the Defender’s head to maximize cutting damage and reduce the cutting resistance by 50%. Finally, the bottom where the “V” notches are sports a Tanto knifepoint with 50% less insertion resistance when you stab a body.
As a result of all this, when the bad guys comes a calling…you DID give them the BAD DAY!
