19.11.2023 - December 2023: the new Prepper S.E.R.E!

With the Prepper One series, Pohl Force introduced a completely new knife concept for bushcrafters and outdoor enthusiasts in 2016: Compact in overall size, a blade length that complies with German weapons regulations (below 12 cm) and a hollow handle for storing survival utensils. After just a short time, Dietmar Pohl's design became a real classic among outdoor fans. 

In 2023, the Prepper One formed the basis for the further development of a completely new generation, which now focuses on the needs of crew members of civilian and, in particular, military aircraft. The term S.E.R.E. refers to the ability to survive, evade, resist and escape. The Prepper S.E.R.E. was developed with this application profile in mind.

The new PREPPER S.E.R.E. will be available next December! Don't miss the release date and sign up for our newsletter.

06.03.2023 - This summer: Bravo One | Two Classic

Bravo One | Two Classic - To celebrate Pohl Force's 15th anniversary, the popular Bravo One | Two Gen. 1 folding knife models are reissued.

Right from the very beginning, their size and compact shapes made them ideal companions for everyday use. And this has not changed to this day. Like the Alpha Two X on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the company with the original handle design of the first generation. The new Classic Edition also features the other details such as the lock-back mechanism, the pocket clip that can be mounted on either the left or right side, and the two-handed opening of the blades.

It's not only Pohl Force that is celebrating an anniversary, but also designer and company founder Dietmar Pohl. At the beginning of the 1990s, now 30 years ago, he created his first knife designs on paper, which opened up a new chapter in his life. ATS-34 from the Japanese steel manufacturer Hitachi, a pendant to the American 154CM steel, was one of the most popular steels of the time. For nearly a decade, ATS-34 steel remained the first choice of custom knifemakers before powder metallurgy steel took off in the 2000s. On the occasion of the company's anniversary, Dietmar Pohl managed to obtain "his" steel again in a very limited quantity and use it for the Classic Edition of the Bravo One / Two. The very corrosion-resistant ATS-34 impresses with its outstanding sharpness and long edge retention.

The Bravo One and Bravo Two will be available in two different versions. Both Classic models are equipped with durable handle scales made of black GRP and a Spearpoint or Tanto blade. The appearance of the Bravo Classic Series is either elegant with black handles and two-tone finish (Stonewashed/Longitudinal Satin) blades or tactical military with Flat Dark Earth colored handles and Dark Stonewashed blades, depending on personal preference and application. All versions have the same outstanding usability for everyday use. Overall length 19.5 cm, blade length 8.3 cm blade thickness 3.5 mm. Weight 120 g.

The price for the Classic models will be 189,00 Euro (incl. 19% VAT). Expected to be available from summer 2023.

22.02.2023 - Now in stock: Quebec Two

The return of a Pohl Force classic which design origins go back to the 50's: the new POHL FORCE -QUEBEC TWO!

Developed as a Ground Forces Combat & General Purpose Weapon, the all-purpose knife was designed for the U.S. Marine Corps in the early 1950s. While officially never introduced, it clearly demonstrated its capabilities in the Vietnam War - mostly in the hands of U.S. Special Forces. Nearly 70 years after its first design, the modern Pohl Force interpretation of this classic represents the perfect fusion of classic old school design with modern high tech manufacturing.

Designer Dietmar Pohl revised the design of the Quebec One and added useful new details. One of these is the Pohl Force Pepper System, which allows survival items to be safely stored inside the handle. The new Quebec Two is also equipped with a very high quality Kydex® sheath with belt adapter and leg strap. Available with a exciting Dark Stonewashed finish or as a modern All-Black version.

The new Quebec Two is available in both versions now!

30.10.2022 - MK-9 First Blood Legacy.

World premiere at the place where it all began! This month, as part of First Blood's 40th anniversary celebration, we unveiled the new MK-9 FIRST BLOOD LEGACY at the original filming location in Hope, BC - Canada. 

With nearly 30 years of experience in the knife industry, Dietmar Pohl created by far his most personal knife ever with the MK-9 FIRST BLOOD 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.

Expected to be available Spring/ Summer 2023. More information about the MK-9 FIRST BLOOD LEGACY you will find already on
