Enter the "Clever Girl" fixed blade tactical knife with an upswept
As part of the "Forged By War" program, Austin McGlaun of
Columbus, Georgia, designed the Clever Girl. It aligns with his
philosophy that a knife is more than a tool. It's a psychological

grab it, use it if necessary, and then go home to your family.

function. Just grab hold of the tough injection molded glass -
reinforced nylon handle. Draw it from a sheath that's MOLLE compatible
for multiple carry options. Then let your body go on autopilot.
