Designed by MSG Grady Burrell (USA, Ret)
and built by knife making legend Darrel Ralph of HTM Knives, the Master
Proven MP01 is made from 154 CM steel with a 4.5 inch blade and an
overall length of 9.25 inches. The textured handle features a hole at
the rear that matches with the spur at the rear of the blade. This
allows for an enclosed grip with the use of paracord or other material,
increasing the retention capability of the knife. Comes with a Black Tactical Sheath
HTM Knives is pleased to announce their partnership with Master Proven.
Master Proven is an independent, 3rd party testing and evaluation
organization comprised of ex-military and sports professionals.
The first product will be the MPMOD1
designed by Master Sergeant Grady Burrell and Knife Designer Darrel
Ralph. “This knife was designed for field use. We have added features
that stop an assailant from kicking or knocking the knife from your hand
in a difficult situation, and at the same time making the knife a tool
for utility purposes while in the field”, says Burrell..
This knife is light, while remaining
strong and ready for chores around the camp or in tense situations.
Ralph adds, “We at HTM have seen Grady’s vision and added our technical
capabilities and long knife making experience to the design. Together we
have one of the finest knives on the market today. We will combine our
strengths on all of the knives resulting in a winning collaboration

specifically for those Users who have not yet adopted FirstSpear™ 6/12™
platforms, the 6/9™ Modular Pocket Technology is not only completely backward
compatible with legacy MOLLE/PALS style load carriage or armor carrier
platforms, but also offers significant weight reduction over traditional
MOLLE/PALS pockets. Due to the flexible nature of the attachment straps
and tighter tolerances when compared to traditional MOLLE/PALS, 6/9™ pockets
actually mount closer to the body and conform tighter to the platform.
Already adopted by Professional Users within the joint US Special Operations
Forces community, this system provides many advantages over the traditional
MOLLE/PALS system and can further help facilitate transition into the 6/12™
Modular Pocket Technology where the ultimate in weight savings, signature
management and tight fit can be achieved.
