After years of research & development, LOTAR Combat® is finally super proud to present, the third incarnation of KARNAFF™ (קרנף Rhino in Hebrew)
The evolutionary redesign of the first two generation of our MilSpec SERE Knife (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape) with elite features co-developed with IDF's 89th Commando Regiment leaders (חטיבת הקומנדו 89)

The KARNAFF™ Gen.3 unique design required a unique construction process, and the 6mm CPM-D2 premium steel was the perfect solution to building this tough, ultra aggressive combat knife, resulting in more lightweight model of this nexteGen Survival/Combat tool.

The all-new flat ground edge, paired with the all-new ultra-ergonomic handle provides an intuitive and a firmer grip, and more natural disposition of the operator’s handling in hard use of this tactical beast.
An all-new design of the drop-point tip combined with reinforced swedge, equips the KARNAFF™ Gen.3 with hyper-piercing capability, second to no other survival knife, in the tactical knife industry.

The all-new razor-sharp rip-sawtooth on the spine of the KARNAFF ensures optimum cutting/sawing surface for outdoors and tactical utility alike.
LOTAR Combat® all-new Equilibrium™ Fuller provides ultimate balance between grip and blade, equally advantageous in both forward and reverse grip application.
The five-point variable jimping along the fulltang handle, and SharkGillz™ on the extended finger-guard, will keep the knife firm in your hand and maximize your technique and fine motor skills in aggressive micro-combat and repetetive bushcraft work in the wilderness.

The nextGen™ Rapideployment™ Kydex sheath, arguably, the most tactical sheath in the industry - is specifically designed to retain the knife at all times, in any angle, under extreme conditions, with no additional securing loops that may compromise instinctive deployment of blade under stress.
This MilSpec Elite SERE model is coated with high-end matte black DLC finish and was made in limited quantity of only 500 models, each carrying unique ***/500 serial number.

Each KARNAFF™ Gen.3 MilSpec Elite is individually machined, masterfully hand ground and crafted, and meticulously inspected for limited lifetime warranty.
