Toor Knives announces Darter Tanto – Made in USA

Press Release/September 27, 2023:

Today, Toor Knives, a leading American knife maker, is proud to release the latest product in their groundbreaking collaboration with Haley Strategic Partners, The Darter Tanto. The alliance between the two brands began in 2020 and combines Travis Haley’s tactical expertise with Toor Knives’ premium bladesmithing capabilities.

“The Darter Tanto is a natural evolution of the original Standard variant, which was our first collaborative product with Haley, and provides operators with another mission ready option for their kits” said Connor Toor, CEO of Toor Knives, “Made from the highest quality CPM s35VN steel, this premium versatile blade can withstand heavy use and piercing tasks, making it idea for tactical situations where knife reliability is crucial”, continued Toor.

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 G10 handle 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, KG GunKote spray finish and both companies’ logos laser engraved on the blade help ensure that The Darter Tanto doesn’t only look good, but that it’s strong enough to tackle any task.

“Over the last few years, the Darter has become one of the most iconic fighting blades to ever hit the market”, said Travis Haley, CEO of Haley Strategic Partners. “This next variation, The Darter Tanto, achieves our goal of continuing to work with the Toor team to develop premium, made in America, blades for combat and personal defense applications”, concluded Haley.

The Darter Tanto will be available in two color options and 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.
