EXTREMA RATIO T1911 Knife
On 19th December 1941, at Eluet El Asel, about 400 men of the 1st Battalion of Royal Paratrooper Carabinieri braved the assault of several Indian battalions: jumping from their foxholes and throwing improvised grenades, the “desert lions”, as Radio London defined them, held the line, allowing thousands of German and Italian soldiers to safely retreat. This was the first action in the history of Italian paratroopers. The paratrooper regiment “Tuscania” has asked for the Extrema Ratio T911 to be specifically designed to commemorate its 80th anniversary. The T911 is a light, medium sized folding knife, designed for professional use by military operators. It features a Bohler N690 cobalt steel modified spearpoint blade heat treated to 58 HRC for best compromise between toughness, ease of sharpening and edge retention.
