This milestone among multipurpose knives, is employed on a large scale in Afghanistan as standard issue equipment in the Italian “Nibbio” mission, originated with a COMALP Alpine Troops Command experimental project for renewing trooper equipment.
As part of preparing for the mission, COMALP coordinated a team of companies toward creating a full experimental set of newly designed equipment for the individual trooper. Extrema Ratio was chosen by COMALP to develop a new multipurpose knife suitable for the infantry – a knife to be used in any operations anywhere, capable of successfully completing tasks that more specialized tools fail at. So successful were they that after this multipurpose knife followed the development of the Fulcrum Bayonet, an implementation of the same which can be mounted onto a trooper’s standard-issue rifle.
An extremely tough and versatile knife, the Fulcrum’s blade can sustain loads of over 150 kilograms (331 pounds) without breaking.
The tanto-shaped blade allows for large amounts of work and wear while still retaining a sharp, penetrating edge at its exceedingly sturdy tip. Thanks to its weight and top-heavy balancing, the Fulcrum is also suitable for hard work on the field.
