The S-T-S-5 is a New design that we developed at the specific request by members of the U.S. Marine corp.s Force Recon.
The Face and nature of Warfare in the last 10 yers has changed. With encounters becoming Face to Face and chest to Chest it has been time for some new Strategy and some new training of Elite Units.
The use of a knife as a weapon had really been mostly phased out for all U.S. Armed Forces.
Without going into Specifics on the Actual Training that has been adopted and is in use there is now a need for a knife that is compact while still having enough Blade to reach Vitals and stout enough to deliver enough energy to pierce to those vitals.
