The Currahee is a full tang fixed blade originally designed for U.S. Special forces boat team 20. The original run of the Currahee was limited, with the first few put in the hands of those best suited to test the knife, the United States Special Forces. Field use has proven that these knives can endure extremely high intensity, and adverse conditions. Currahee is a Cherokee name, which translates "Stands Alone". Currahee is also the name of the last mountain in the Blue Ridge chain of mountains, where the U.S. Army established camp Toccoa during WW2; here the first parachute infantry was trained. This knife far surpassed all expectations, and therefore, was given the name "CURRAHEE".
