SR-71 Silverbirds - Tactical vs Elite Hunter

At Guinea Hog Forge, we make two SR-71 Silverbirds - a tactical version and an Elite Hunter. 
We've had some questions about the similarities and differences, so here's the lowdown.

The SR-71 tactical comes with a scalloped Micarta handle and a belt-finished blade.

The Elite Hunter comes with a shaped handle (Micarta or wood) and a hand-sanded blade.

The Micarta scales on the tactical version are attached via screws. 

The scales on the Elite Hunter are attached with mosaic pins. 

All Silverbirds are made from 3V rust resistant carbon steel (which means they cut extremely well), but our tactical version has a heavier spine for strength, 
while the Elite Hunter is slimmer for superior cutting.

The Elite Hunter is also 1/4 inch shorter than the SR-71 tactical 
and has a tad more belly for skinning.

Both knives come standard with lined leather sheaths. The tactical Silverbird comes with a bushcraft sheath that can be worn on the belt or strapped to a pack/vest . . . 

. . . while the Elite Hunter comes with a tooled drop sheath. 

We have a few SR-71 tactical Silverbirds available on the website now, 
and we'll have more available at Blade Show in Atlanta in June. 

Come by and check them out at - Table 13P. 
Thanks for looking!
