Description

The Treeman TASS knife is rather special and this particular one is really special.  Jim Behring of Treeman knives has quietly made knives for Navy SEALS and special ops soldiers for years.  I know allot of knife companies make that claim, but very few companies and makers actually make knives for them.  Jim Behring is the real deal, there have been many articles written about him and about the TASS knife.  In 2012 a  SEAL platoon ask him to make a knife for all 22 members to honor a fallen comrade Matthew Kantor that was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2012.  All 22 SEALS had input in designing the knife, they liked the Recon Hunter, but want a longer wider blade with more belly.  The TASS (Teams and shit shank) was born, and yes the SEALS named it that.  Behring made 3 prototypes and then settled on the design.  The first 22 knives went to the SEALS and were marked E-4 which was Kantor’s call sign.  He numbered the next 10 he made, then continued to make them without the number.  This knife is number 6 from the first 10.  I bought it personally from Jim at the Blade in 2013.  I was going to keep it, but I have decided to let it go.  As an FYI, the normal TASS sells for $345.00.  I am asking a premium on this one because it is numbered and one of the first 10 made.   If you would like one that is not numbered at the regular price contact me and I will be happy to get you one.

I love the design, feel and balance of the knife, it has a distal taper and top swedge.  The knife is designed to be a tough as hell field knife with good penetration.  The kydex sheath has double belt loops for stability and velcro lining for a silent draw.  The specs are below:
