A long-time specialty of BFE Labs, these tools are typically made from Carbon Fiber, and various Phenolic Laminates (Garolite-10, etc). Non-Metallic tools have a small but distinct role. Their value to a user living or working in a non-permissive environment is unmatched. All non-metallic tools feature fully non-metallic sheaths or carry systems to meet a broad spectrum of needs. Design possibilities are equally broad; Ultra-small,hideout and escape type knives, all the way up to full-sized fighters.
Currently made on a custom basis; See Immediately Available page, or contact about a custom piece (Sold on a discretionary basis; Foreign Sales to verifiable Military, Law Enforcement, Security, professionals only. Contact for more info.)
