Aqua Lung’s tough­est knife, the Argonaut, is now avail­able in a smaller ver­sion, the Argonaut Stunt. The butt, han­dle, hilt and blade are fash­ioned out of one piece of 4mm-thick 420 Stain­less Steel, which is then coated in black EDP (Elec­trophoretic de­po­si­tion), sharp­ened and laser-etched. The han­dle is wrapped, twice, in 5mm para­cord and tied off with a 12.7cm leash. 2mm thick Ky­dex plas­tic is then heated and ther­mo­formed around the knife to make the sheath. The sheath comes at­tached to a belt loop and with BCD mount­ing hard­ware. The blade is avail­able in two styles: the Spar­tan and the Blunt. The Spar­tan comes to a spear head point with one side fea­tur­ing rounded die-cut ser­ra­tions to pre­vent snags on rope. The Blunt comes to a blunt chisel-like tip. One full side of the Blunt blade is die-cut with rounded ser­ra­tions. The han­dles are wrapped from the hilt to pro­vide a spot for the fore­fin­ger and ex­tra grip for the sheath. The butt of the han­dle fea­tures a sharp tac­ti­cal tool and the skele­ton holes in the han­dle are hex wrenches for emer­gency sit­u­a­tions.
