More info on the Sangrador:
Forged to make an enemy think twice. The dual-edged Sangrador™ is a fixed blade tactical combat knife with a dagger style blade that serves one purpose. Let’s hope someone rushing at you never finds out.

You’d expect a knife like the Sangrador™ to be created by a veteran who’s spent plenty of time in the field. An advanced soldier who knows what works and what doesn’t. Darrin Sirois, from Fayetteville, North Carolina, is all that and more. Working with our Forged By War™ program, he created a knife that a Special Ops fighter would find invaluable. After all, he spent 11 tours in Iraq and fought in the Balkans and Panama.

Sangrador means bleeder in Latin. And this knife takes its role seriously. A 5.5″ dual-edged SK5 steel dagger style blade that has unbelievable penetrating abilities. Add Veff Serrations™ and you have a knife that feels as powerful at preventing attacks as it does cutting through cord and rope. A black powder coat finish resists corrosion and camouflages it perfectly in the dark of night. AKA: working hours for you.

A non-slip G10 handle provides unbeatable grip in all conditions, even in sweaty hand-to-hand combat. Just slide it into your MOLLE compatible sheath with a compartment for extra accessories. Then prepare to go into battle with extra large force.

When you want twice as much offense in battle, reach for the dual-edged Sangrador™.

About the Forged By War™ program –
In 2013, Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical, designer of elite, military, tactical tomahawks, approached CRKT with the news that he had been working with a few combat veterans that had returned from war with varying degrees of post-traumatic stress (PTS).

To help work through their challenges, they have been designing and forging steel into custom tools. Drawing from their experience earned in combat situations, they have been creating tools they wished they had available to them on the battlefield.

CRKT cares deeply about our returning veterans and we saw a way to give back to the community that created them. In 2016, we launched the Forged By War™ program.

These are mission ready tools, designed by veterans, with 10% of the CRKT net profits of the program donated to the veterans’ charity of choice.

Mission ready tools that are, Forged By War™.

Darren Sirois’ charity of choice for this tool is the Purple Heart Homes.

    Just got mine today and I love it. Feels great and is very robust. Love the sheath – I can carry it different ways. Plastic liner works great. This design shows your field and military experience. Good job with this knife!!! Thank you for your service.

  17. Bring me Peter pan on December 30, 2022 at 1:14 am

    Wow what a great story, it’s awesome to see a vet be able to give back like that. Thank you for your service Mr. Sirios! I would love to buy one of these knives as my first fixed blade ever. I have a tight tac two and an m16 14dsfg so I’m looking for a good fix blade.



  18. Gunner on December 30, 2022 at 1:17 am

    I think of a seven inch blade version. Any chances you would be doing It? Thank you.



  19. RUSLAN SPARTA on December 30, 2022 at 1:18 am

    Закалки нету, просто кусок железа получается?



  20. Brimar7 on December 30, 2022 at 1:19 am

    Designed by a combat vet? This combat vet is buying one! Almost exactly like the one I carried during Desert Shield/Storm.



  21. Scottish Outdoors on December 30, 2022 at 1:19 am

    Great knife, great design, great company in CRKT and a simply fantastic charity to support. Love and respect brother from another old warhorse this side of the pond.



  22. Radio N' Bike Prepper on December 30, 2022 at 1:19 am

    Great knife! Love it.



  23. Jason Patio on December 30, 2022 at 1:20 am

    I own one. Tough knife. Is there a way to get an upgraded sheath?



  24. Daniel Diaz on December 30, 2022 at 1:21 am

    Just purchased mine and this is my first knife, based off of this video. Thank you, Sir.



  25. Jimmy Oliver on December 30, 2022 at 1:22 am

    I would love to have this knife



  26. David K. on December 30, 2022 at 1:23 am

    I like it, but would like it without the serrations.



  27. Niffty Shine on December 30, 2022 at 1:24 am

    Well done sir.



  28. Bruce Barnes on December 30, 2022 at 1:25 am

    Nice knife but I don’t care for the serration on the crkt version I prefer the one you made much better



  29. Project Red Beard on December 30, 2022 at 1:26 am

    Its a shame CRKT discontinued this knife



  30. Juan Gabriel Escalante on December 30, 2022 at 1:26 am

    Me agrada mas por ser soldados de Estados Unidos ! Que se dediquen a realizar los mejores cuchillos 👍💪



  31. TheOfficial SoldierThatReviews on December 30, 2022 at 1:29 am

    The Veff serrations are my absolute favorite of any serration on a knife I’ve carried a CRKT M21-14DSFG for 6 years now. Now that I’ve found your blade I will be adding to my carry line up. You can’t beat the good old fairbairn sykes techniques and your knife is perfect for it!



  32. ShooterMedic on December 30, 2022 at 1:30 am

    Please remove the large serrations on this blade. The ones on the original he makes are different and look much better and probably function better as well.



  33. john Mutton on December 30, 2022 at 1:31 am

    Cannot find in UK.



  34. Brandon Thomas on December 30, 2022 at 1:32 am

    Sine pari



  35. Mir bar on December 30, 2022 at 1:32 am

    awesome,what a beautifull knife !! congrats, amazing job!!! never thought that i will be so charmed by a dagger…



  36. jhanks2012 on December 30, 2022 at 1:34 am

    Kinda paints "special operators" out to be a bunch of preppy, whiny, high-maintenance sissies lmao … I know they’re not all like that.



  37. LALO GALLARDO on December 30, 2022 at 1:35 am

  38. Big Mofo on December 30, 2022 at 1:36 am

    I wanted to buy that knife… until a realized i can’t get it without the stupid serrations.



  39. Juan Perez on December 30, 2022 at 1:36 am

    Darrin Sirois, awesome. Just awesome. It’s my next knife purchase.



  40. john Mutton on December 30, 2022 at 1:38 am

    Something to rival the fairbairn knife



  48. john Mutton on December 30, 2022 at 1:46 am

    Have been trying to find a UK supplier. This is a very good design. Very good handle with guard.



  49. Jason Patrick2022 on December 30, 2022 at 1:46 am
