Praetorian Slim Tsunami/Rip Curl
Praetorian Slim Tsunami/ Rip Curl Handle features an S45VN PVD tanto blade with a faced/flamed handle, bronze hardware and a PVD clip.
This knife has all the style of our rescaled Praetorian knives but is amongst the slimmest in the business. It truly disappears in the pocket. With 1/8” thick slabs for the handles and blade, this knife can cross over between work jeans and dress pants. Shorts??? No problem. This knife is light but punches way above its weight with an off-angle glass breaker integral in the blade. Perfect for the blade-slinger that wants to carry darn near everywhere and likes his knife to make a quiet statement. Slim, light, tough, and ready to be used all day long.
All Praetorian variants come with a D2, NP3 coated tempered-glass breaking pommel. We have extensively tested these tips and you find them utterly dependable and 100% functional. No gimmick. No variations of this breaker, in material or form, will be done by MKT as it is meant to be an emergency lifesaving feature and not for ornamental appeal. If testing wear hand and arm protection as overexertion will ABSOLUTELY result in cuts to the hand and arm.
Be advised. We launch new hardware all the time to complicate things for the knock-offs coming from China. At any given time you may receive the last of the previous generation hardware or first of the new hardware. We do not change or give hardware preferences. There is no perfect way to do this so we switch them only when we are complete out of the previous design.

Greg’s early development was deeply shaped by his Mom being 2nd generation Greek immigrant and his Dad being from an old Irish/ American family that hails from Massachusetts, West Texas, and Arizona. The values of pragmatism, hard work, honesty, love of one’s country and treating people right were instilled early.
Greg is relatively new to knife making but attacks the calling with the same intense passion and dedication towards excellence that he brings to everything he does. A life long lover of all things edged, he is no newcomer to the design and use of knives.
Greg served in the United States Marine Corps from 1988-1992. He was part of “New England’s Own” and deployed for Operations Desert Storm and Shield in 1990-1991. He holds a special place in his heart for anyone who needs a knife for the various things required in warfare and brings his first-hand experience to the design and making of these special blades. Greg knows and feels how important it is to have the very best tools to get you back to your loved ones after a mission or adventure. When a knife leaves the studio with the MKT logo stamped into it, all of these influences bear forth in the steel and quality of our products.
