Featured Knife: Col Moschin by Extrema Ratio

Straight from the Italian military to your sheath, it’s the Col Muschin from Extrema Ratio.


Made to order for the renowned 9th Parachute Assault Regiment “Col Moschin” of the Italian special forces, which officially adopted it in 2002, this is a quintessential combat knife.

Extrema Ratio’s Col Moschin represents a contemporary reworking of daggers issued to the Arditi – the historical force in whose footsteps the 9th walks – which sported asymmetrical blades and straight, but direction-sensitive, hilts. This new knife is designed to be light and handy, balanced decidedly toward the hilt, with a highly perforating tip. Each new “Incursore” (assault paratrooper) is issued one of these combat knives and trained to use it to its best. Available versions: COL MOSCHIN BLACK, COL MOSCHIN DESERT WARFARE, COL MOSCHIN COLLECTOR EDITION.
