TACTICAL KNIVES AND SHEATHS
COMING SOON- We have had so many requests from our Military, Law Enforcement, and Survival friends for dependable hard working blades and sheaths that we have decided to produce our version of the best working knife you can buy.

If you want to get on the pre-order list please call today.
ASL KNIFE SYSTEM © (Air, Sea, & Land)
As of 1/14/2014 Chisholm’s Trail has officially started a new Tactical Knife Division with business notification. This ASL Knife system © is official and trademark has been applied for. Knife designs and accessories are copyrighted and can not be replicated in any way, shape, or fashion. We have spent a tremendous amount of time working with representatives in the Special Forces community. Warriors such as Air Force Commandos, Army Green Berets, Navy Seals, and Marine Recon & Raiders are working with us, providing input on the design and development of this blade. Some of the topics of input were type of steel, thickness, weight, length, color, shape, and sheaths to mention a few. This first offering is the result of our veteran’s input and advice.
We are not representing our selves as “Custom Knife-makers,” but we are smart enough to consult those that are. We are knife producers- getting our blades with our designs hand made in the USA only, by a professional knife company. They are not pre-made blanks available to anyone. We are obtaining the best “grippy” handle material we can, in suggested colors, closely fit to the handle metal with no “hot spots” or areas to cause a blister. Each blade is hand ground and carefully heat treated to around RC 57. Our Kydex sheaths will be made by the best maker available and the leather sheaths will be designed and hand made by Chisholm’s Trail. Our knives will perform in the way they will have been tested to do- period. We don’t produce by the hundreds but by a dozen at a time with intense inspection prior to shipping. Supply will be limited. Get on the pre-order list today.

(First run delivery June 6) This first “all purpose”l knife will be approximately 4 7/8″ long, 3/16″ thick, and 1 1/2″ wide. Knife weight without sheath will be less than 1 pound. Powder coated metal will leave no reflective surfaces. Micarta slab handle with palm swell will provide good grasp and be impervious to water.

This is the perfect knife for any special forces member that is allowed to obtain his or her own gear. In addition, as a result of this research and testing, this style will also be the “ultimate survival and bug out blade”. Sheaths will be made in both Kydex and leather and are a separate charge. Call to pre-order and get on the list now. Production will be limited. We expect tremendous response to this first knife and will see you in June at the Atlanta Blade Show.
