LOTAR - KHATOOL | IDF Unit CT707 Special Issue
LOTAR Combat® is proud to present the KHATOOL™ ( k'ha-tool חתול : Cat in Hebrew)
our latest and greatest disruptive combat knife, co-developed with Nir Maman, an authoritative Krav Maga expert and fellow IDF Counterterror (LOTAR לוט״ר) veteran.
Both Form & Function of the KHATOOL™ distinguished design flawlessly encapsulate the Counterterror unit spirit & mindset, and its name derived from the (bat-winged) black cat in the unit's emblem.
The cat (displayed in its fighting pose) is an animal that embodies all the attributes for effective Counterterror Warfare.
Defending - The ability to rapidly and effectively react to a hostile attack
Hunting - The ability to effectively and surgically carry out pre-emptive actions against hostile threats.
Hunting and defending require a multitude of important attributes, such as speed, agility, stealthiness, intellect and strategy/the ability to effectively and rapidly perfrom like a cat’s natural ability to sneak up on its prey, pounce and neutralize it - faster than the prey could react.
The KHATOOL™ indeed possesses all these attributes and capabilities much like the majestic animal it’s named after.
The distinct shape of the blade is designed like magnified scallops of aggressive serrations, it follows the outline of the bat wings of the cat in the IDF LOTAR Unit's emblem. The multi-recurve blade enables longer-edge-per-distance and optimum striking which perfectly incorporates the KRAV MAGA fundamental of simultaneous defense+attack, an effective advantage in Micro-Combat (לוחמה זעירה) and knife fighting.
The KHATOOL™ ultra ergonomic handle features low-profile finger-guard and aggressive pommel for breaching and retention. LOTAR Combat® trusty five-contact-point jimping along this 10" full-tang blade, reinforced with the ultra ergonomic G10 scales, was thoroughly designed to keep the knife firm in your hand and maximize your fine motor skills in stressful situations and adrenaline-rushed conditions.
LOTAR Combat® acclaimed Rapideployment™ sheath, was expertly designed to retain the knife at all times, in any angle, under extreme conditions, with no additional securing loops that would otherwise compromise instinctive deployment of blade under stress.
