The Ambush Alpha Knife is the first production model from Ambush Knives. It is a full sized field knife made for general camp and outdoor use. This model utilizes Crucible's CPM 3V tool steel – a very fine grained powder metallurgical super steel - which is then differentially heat treated to provide excellent edge retention and incredible toughness. It features a flat ground blade with a convex sharpened edge allowing for tremendous cutting/slicing performance with the durability of a strong, laterally supported convex edge. We feel this flat to convex geometry is perfect for all around use and allows for easy field sharpening and for those who like V-bevel edges the knife can be easily converted with minimal effort using stones The rear tang stands proud of the handle to expose the lanyard hole and in an emergency can be utilized as a tool to pound with.
Leather and Kydex sheaths come as a standard option. With the Ambush Alpha you can choose wheter you want leather or any one of the kydex sheaths offered – something pretty unique in the knife industry. The leather sheath knife includes a firesteel holder and leather belt loop that can be worn on the strong side, or worn as a canted cross draw sheath. The Kydex sheaths include a reversible drop loop (right or left hand compatible), weep hole, and mounting slots for accessory pouches. Rivets on the Kydex sheath are spaced .75" apart to be compatible with firesteel holders, large Tek-Loks, Molle Loks, and other .75"/1.5" spaced mounting accessories. Pouches are available as an add-on, along with the many other mountable accessories that are available. You can configure these options on this Ambush Alpha accessory page. Your Ambush Alpha is 100% built in the USA, the knife the leather sheath, the kydex sheath and even the boxes/stickers are made here in the upper Midwest! Covered by a lifetime warranty.
Beautifully finished well balanced knife. Blade length is perfect size for most all task. Fits my big paw comfortably and the sculpted G10 gives a great secured grip. What else can I say, I simply love it. The DLT team offer excellent knowledge, service and are very friendly.

Beautiful knife, made extremely well. The scales match the spine perfectly with no overlap or snags. Knife came razor sharp right out of the box. Grind was spot on and this knife cuts extremely well.

The Ambush Alpha is a precision and carefully made knife. It is well balanced and the handle is designed to fit nicely in the hand enabling a very good grip. I won't go into any of the usual Bushcraft, hunting tales. I will say this knife is as good as the user of it. I found you can even 'choke up' on the blade for finer detail cuts. Like any tool, use it for what it is and trust me, you will enjoy this knife a great deal. There is really no need to compare it with other knives but I will say this, If I had my choice, I would have purchased the Ambush Alpha over my Chris Reeve knife…, guaranteed!

If you want the best forget about the rest. I own close to 300 knives. This is by far the best fixed blade I have ever purchased. I would like to own another. I'm a knife maker an I have to say this is a very good quality blade. The shipping was very fast. I can't thank you enough for a awesome knife an fast shipping. I will be getting another one. Just hope they have the black an green g10 scales. I have seen those scales on the Sentry fixed blade. Beautiful knife. Would also like to see the Sentry in the same size as the Ambush Alpha. I hunt, fish an camp a lot... This Ambush Alpha has no problem doing any task I put it through. Would like to also add. Would there be any way possible to offer replacement scales in a variety of colors an materials. Keep up the good work DLT....
