The ARA TACT is the newest addition to the top-of-the-line ARA XL series of rescue SOS knives by Antonini.

The blade is upgraded from the already high-quality hardened steel to Aisi D2–a higher carbon content semi-stainless that exhibits a terrific combination of excellent edge endurance and corrosion resistance.

The black anti-reflective Mil-Spec coating also increases the corrosion resistance of the blade.

Included are all of the fine features found on the rest of the ARA XL line: The blade has a slot and twin pegs to aid opening with either hand and with gloves. Cut in a “combo” blade (partially serrated), the slight curve and rounded safety tip aid in cutting on the pull and the handle includes a curved slot for cutting through ropes.

Included are a seat-belt cutter, 10.3mm hole for attaching a carabiner or rope, glass-breaking nib, and a 1/4″ bit holder complete with a neodymium magnet.
