With nearly 30 years of experience in the knife industry, Dietmar Pohl created by far his most personal knife ever with the MK-9 Legacy. It was a survival knife that captivated the designer 40 years ago in the movie "First Blood" and never let go. The design, the size, the functionality and of course the use of the knife in the hands of a fighter and survival expert left a previously unimagined impression. What followed was an unprecedented career in the knife industry, which led an astonishing 36 years after the German premiere of the film "First Blood" to Dietmar Pohl developing the knife for "Last Blood" precisely for his action hero. Which closed a circle for him personally after decades.

However, two things that have always preoccupied designer Dietmar Pohl over the years remained unfinished: First, he always wanted to travel to the place where the action of the film "First Blood" took place, and second, he wanted to develop a survival knife that would create a link between the films "First Blood" and "Last Blood." On the occasion of the 40th anniversary celebrations in the town of Hope in the province of British Columbia, Canada, which was the setting for the film "First Blood", the opportunity arose to visit as well as to develop a unique survival knife.

The MK-9 Legacy impresses not only with its appearance, but with a multitude of well thought-out functional elements. The size and appearance is the same as Dietmar Pohl's legendary MK-9 concept, but the design, which was conceived as a combat knife, is transformed into a survival knife with a great sense of form, detail and functionality. Key elements include the back saw, screwdrivers on the handguard, elongated holes in the handguard for attaching lanyards, a cavity for survival gear inside the handle, a striking element at the end of the handle, and a key for opening the handle screws.

The MK-9 was crafted with only selected and high-quality materials. The massive Spearpoint blade, 230 millimetres long and 6,2 millimetres thick, is made of the high-alloy carbon steel Niolox. It impresses with properties such as high rust resistance and special cutting durability. The blasted surface of the blade prevents reflection and emphasizes the technical look of the Legacy.

The textured handle scales made of black G-10 or green canvas composite material are CNC milled from solid material. Both materials are extremely durable and resistant to mechanical stress as well as other external environmental influences. According to Pohl Force standard, the tang is provided with a SRM (Surface Round Milling) that realizes a high grip comfort. Easy access to the cavity of the handle is made possible with the included key.

As with the CNC-Tec Edition of MOVIE KNIVES, the MK-9 Legacy will be built to strict specifications in close cooperation with our European manufacturing partner Lionsteel. The multiple winner of the 'Blade Manufacturing Award' is a guarantee for outstanding quality. The very high-quality and elaborately designed leather sheath of the knife is another highlight. Our manufacturing partner is the renowned company Radar 1957 - Italy, one of the leading manufacturers of holsters for the police and military sector. Based in Tuscany, near Florence, the company looks back on almost 70 years of experience.

A homage to the beginnings is also the diamond knife sharpener, which completes the leather sheath of the MK-9 Legacy. The American classic is manufactured by Eze-Lap from Carson City, Nevada. The solid brass harmonizes perfectly with the warm brown tone of the fine leather sheath. A sturdy leg strap is also included.

The scope of delivery also includes an anniversary patch, eight lobby cards, a vintage flyer and a high-quality collector's pouch. This has a 2-way zipper (lockable) as well as a Velcro area for patches. Perfect for secure transport or as a pad to display the MK-9 Legacy.
