Darter T - Shadow Black

In collaboration with Haley Strategic Partners we built one of the most unique fighting blades to ever hit the market – the Darter!
Our dedication to quality and precision means your blade is BUILT TO ORDER. Please allow our small team ten-twelve business days to complete your fixed blade, and fifteen-twenty days for folding blades.

The Darter Tanto in Shadow Black is the latest product in our groundbreaking collaboration with Haley Strategic Partners! The alliance between the two brands began in 2020 and combines Travis Haley’s tactical expertise with Toor Knives’ premium bladesmithing capabilities.

This blade is a natural evolution of the original Standard variant and provides operators with another mission-ready option for their kits. Made from the highest quality M4 steel, the Darter Tanto is a premium, versatile blade that can withstand heavy use and piercing tasks, making it ideal for tactical situations where knife reliability is crucial.

Highlights of The Darter Tanto include the now iconic reverse serrations on the spine, which offer an extremely sharp solution to fighting with the back of the knife. Additionally, the tanto blade shape provides strength and durability, and the sharp, angular tip is excellent for piercing through tough materials. Its Black G10 handle with Red liner is machined with a texture to match the iconic Haley Strategic dragonfly wing pattern, while also offering excellent grip when wet.

Lastly, a retention lanyard hole, thumb jimping on the spine and butt end of the blade, stainless steel Torx handle screws, Black KG GunKote spray finish and both companies’ logos laser engraved on the blade help ensure that The Darter Tanto Shadow Black not only looks good, but that it’s strong enough to tackle any task.

The Darter Tanto Shadow Black includes a Black Toor Knives Kydex® sheath with a retention adjustability screw and friction offset to reduce blade rattle inside the sheath. Included with the sheath is all mounting hardware as well as an UltiClip Slim 3.3 mount.
