This knife is suitable for members of law enforcement and security communities, those in active military service, as well as knife collectors.Besh Wedge Fighting Knife / 11.75 overall. 6.5 satin finish stainless blade. BESH Wedge Technology was born when Beshara was working on a modern interpretation of a classic military dagger. Because grind symmetry is so important to the proper look of a dagger, it is not unusual for makers to grind the opposing (diagonally opposite) bevels to establish the initial look of the knife. They would then grind the remaining two opposing bevels to define the centerline and the final lines of the blade. In Beshara's case, after grinding the first two bevels of the blade, he took a close look at the way the lines began to converge at the tip and realized that they began to shape a chisel edge almost like the sharpened tip of a flat screwdriver. Fascinated with the potential of this unique edge geometry, he ground the bevels deeper until he had a dagger with two diagonally opposite chisel-edged bevels. The two sharpened edges of these bevels met at the tip of the blade in a third edge that appeared to have substantially more strength and structure than a traditional dagger point. It also produced one of the most distinctive "looks" of any knife ever seen.
