In the film "Last Blood®," the former Special Forces and Vietnam fighter uses a variety of different combat knives. More than in any other film in the five-part action series (1982-2019). Designers Dietmar Pohl and Stoil Manchev were given the great privilege of using unusual and contemporary designs. Impressively staged by the main actor, they already count among true classics.
Over the past four years, a third MOVIE KNIFE concept design has been slumbering in Dietmar Pohl's very personal design archive. Due to the enormously short lead time to filming in the fall of 2018, it had no longer been possible to realize it and present it to the film star and the production team.
In July 2022, however, Dietmar Pohl surprised the action hero on his 76th birthday with the first prototype of the MK-11, which can be both a tool and a weapon. In the fall of 2022, the legendary action series will celebrate its 40th anniversary (1982-2022). For this special occasion, Pohl Force is producing the MK-11 concept design in a numbered and strictly limited series of only 600 pieces worldwide.
MK-11 Last Blood® Concept - when Dietmar Pohl got to read the script at short notice in 2018, he very quickly realized how determined the action hero wanted to go into battle using all means. It had to be a design with which one could hack, stab and also strike with great force. The idea of such a special means of action was well known to designer Dietmar Pohl from the armament of British commandos in World War II. In his professional career, he worked intensively with Colonel Rex Applegate, among others, who shared his expertise with him. Applegate is still considered one of the most recognized experts in the field of armed close combat.
With the MK-11, Pohl Force takes the philosophy of this early command weapon and brings it into the 21st century with contemporary materials and manufacturing processes. 6 millimeter thick and highly durable D2 steel with a Rockwell hardness of 59-60 HRC give the 26.3 centimeter long blade superior cutting performance and durability.
To protect against reflections and corrosion, the MK-11 is additionally coated with a black PVD coating. For the CNC-manufactured handle made of impact-resistant G-10, Pohl adopted the proven handle design of its MK-9 combat knife, but dispensed with the additional subhilt. As with the MK-8 and MK-9, the handle ends with a precisely milled striking element. In order to be able to carry the MK-11 optimally in the field, the scope of delivery includes a very elaborately manufactured sheath made of 2.5 mm thick Kydex®. The two leg straps allow a comfortable attachment to the thigh. To secure the MK-11 to the hand, it is equipped with a knotted lanyard.

The blade of the MK-11 Last Blood Concept® is made of D2 (1.2379) tool steel, which has enormous cutting durability, but requires a certain amount of basic care due to the chrome content of 11.8 %. Corrosion can occur in the absence of proper maintenance. For prevention, the knife should be cleaned, dried and re-oiled regularly to prevent rust and corrosion. Especially when the knife comes into contact with uncertain substances or acidic liquids or marine environment.
