FB29 Pygmy Warrior

The Pygmy Warrior distills the unique qualities of the legendary Warrior design into a more compact, easier-to-carry format. Designed by combat veteran and lifelong martial artist Bob Taylor, the Pygmy is precision machined from premium CTS BD1 stainless steel and features full-tang construction for extreme strength and a tough, non-reflective Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating. The curve of the blade is computer optimized to match the natural arc of motion of the human arm and ensure maximum energy transfer during a thrust. An aggressive series of sawteeth on the back of the blade also provide extreme traction when used with reverse-grip trapping and hooking techniques.

One of the Pygmy’s most distinctive features is its “stackable” handle construction, which consists of two outer scales and two spacers that allow you to custom tune the grip size to your hand. This highly evolved close-combat tool includes a custom-molded Boltaron® sheath equipped with a versatile G-Clip attachment that supports angle-adjustable belt or inside-the-waistband carry. Every knife also includes a copy of the book Every knife also includes a copy of the book The Warrior Path, which traces the history of the Warrior knife’s evolution and has been revised and updated to include the Pygmy Warrior story.
