Arrow Scalpel Factory 11 Bravo Knives

Scalpel Factory 11 Bravo Knives
Infantryman turned surgeon, Dr. Miguel D. Montagnese MD custom grinds blades to be the ultimate CQB fighter!

presented by
By Michael Janich

Fighting effectively with a knife requires knowledge of human anatomy and physiology. Granted, anyone with a sharp blade and enough aggression can certainly cause tremendous injury, but blindly cutting and thrusting isn’t the most effective way to get the job done. In the 15 years that I’ve been publicly teaching my approach to knife tactics, I’ve had many medical professionals as students and even taught my system at the International School of Tactical Medicine. In the process, I’ve validated the core concepts of my approach and learned a lot about the finer points of knife fighting anatomy. I was therefore extremely intrigued when reviewing a combat knife that had been designed and made by a former General Surgeon and Wound Care Specialist.


To test the combative cutting performance of the 11 Bravo, the author tested it against a target made of a pork roast suspended in a jeans pant leg.

Street to Soldier to Surgeon
The knife I’m referring to is the 11 Bravo made by Dr. Miguel D. Montagnese MD. Dr. Montagnese grew up in Lorain, Ohio—a tough industrial city on the shore of Lake Erie. After high school, most of his peers were leaning toward the wrong side of the law, so to escape that cycle Dr. Montagnese joined the Army. He served three years as an infantry enlisted man before suffering a service-related injury that ended his military career. He returned to Ohio, enrolled in college and ultimately set his sights on medical school and a career as a surgeon.

Dr. Montagnese did his residency in the trauma ward of the Akron City Hospital, where he treated countless knife and gunshot wounds.

Through this experience, he not only honed his medical skills, but also developed an intimate understanding of the dynamics of knife wounds. Ultimately, Dr. Montagnese specialized in Minimally Invasive Laparoscopic, General, and cancer-related surgery and had a very successful career as a surgeon and wound care specialist. In that context, he also had extensive experience in the use of scalpels and what it takes for steel to cut flesh. The effects of his earlier injuries lingered and he ultimately had to stop practicing surgery.


The blade design of the 11 Bravo combines a straight wharncliffe cutting edge, a sharpened back edge, and a well-centered, reinforced tip.

That is a sweet knife. Price is steep though. 300 plus S&H for the 11 Bravo. It doesn't come with an OD Green grip as an option and I could almost buy a Hi Power pistol for that price.

Lightbulb You get what you pay for

You get what you pay for. What is your life worth when your life depends on your equipment? I understand cost but sometimes you have to bite the bullet for custom kit. I'm no longer in the place I can afford the 11 Bravo however if I was still in the active military; trust me $300 is nothing compared to what many of our soldiers pay for personal blades. Some special ops guys pay upwards of $1000 for their custom blades.

Very true Papa. I have a few in my collection. An OTF design switchblade, a nice stainless butterfly knife, a bowie knife, a S&W brand lock back Karambit, S&W brand Kukri knife, an Indian made Kukri knife (THAT is a nice knife. It's cheaply but very well made, thick but quick.) and an Ontario Knife Co 8 inch tanto knife. I also have a Kershaw spring assisted knife I got on the cheap but that's just for every day use.

Gurkhas in the Indian, Nepalese and British forces love their Khukris. Legend has it that once a Khukri is unsheathed, it must draw blood, thus the Gurkha will slightly slice his thumb to satisfy the Khukri's craving if no enemy is in sight.

Another Indian knife you should check out is the Kataar.

A Khukri is a fine blade and I once had a custom made rather large one. I sold it as one after all can only carry so many blades at one time and it was just too heavy. My problem is I just like so many of them it is just hard to pick just a few.

Very interesting knife Knaur. Yes I've heard that story. I like the one where the Gurkha were in the British service in WWII and it came down to h2h combat. The Gurkha pulled their Kukris and began fighting. After it was all over, many of the enemy's heads were chopped off in one swing.

Could be an exaggerated story but it sure is a great one. :D

You hear of the Gurkha who got the Conspicuous Gallantry Cross in Afghanistan? Bad ass story right there. They charged his occupied building and he expended 250 rounds of ammo. Well hell, I'll get the article, it'll tell it better than I can.

The story was used as a propaganda tool by British in the Falklands War as Gurkha units had a reputation for ferocity anyway. The news of Bde of Gurkhas arrival on the island scared off the Argies into abandoning some posts IIRC.

Quote:
Apparently they had been convinced - by British propaganda - that Gurkhas were sword-wielding monsters who cut off their enemies' heads and then 'held the severed head by the hair and cut off the ears'.

Not an exaggeration, there have recorded instances in Indo-Pak wars also of Gurkhas tossing off the bayonets in H2H combat and having a go at it with their Khukris. A British Gurkha soldier in A'stan was disciplined because when asked for positive identification of a kill, he went back to the field, chopped off the Talib's head with his Khukri and brought it back.

Yes I'v heard the story, after he expended the ammo, he started hacking at the Talibs trying to get into his position with a machine gun tripod!

There was this incident when 40 dacoits started robbing a train in India, then one of them decided to rape a girl. There was an Indian Army Gurkha Infantry soldier on board. Unfortunately for the douchebags, when they had robbed Bishnu they'd made one fatal mistake: They didn't take his khukri.
