Mad Dog® Knives Limited Edition SEAL ATAK’s

Mad Dog® Knives Limited Edition SEAL ATAK’s:

The Mad Dog® Knives SEAL ATAK is an icon in Mad Dog® Knives history, it is probably the most sought after Mad Dog® knife in the world. It was the beginning of an amazing journey not only for Mad Dog® Knives, but for many others as well. For those who are lucky enough to own one, they remain the cornerstone of our collections. Every year starting in 2011 an extremely limited number of Mad Dog SEAL ATAK’s will be produced (4 knives in 2011, 4 knives in 2012 & 6 Knives in 2013). Appearances and markings will vary from year to year.

The 2013 Mad Dog® Knives SEAL ATAK’s™ are complete! There were a total of 6-2013 SEAL ATAK’s produced this year, 5 of the knives featured a Glowing Temper Line finish and 1 of the knives featured a Mirror Polished blade. The 2013 SEAL ATAK’s have somewhat of a retro look but also incorporate the latest Mad Dog® Knives techniques and finishes. A couple of key features that make the 2013 SEAL ATAK’s unique are the 16 point 3/16″ file work and small eyebrow clip point blades reminiscent of the very early Mad Dog SEAL ATAK’s. These super grade Mad Dog 2013 SEAL ATAK’s are the absolute finest representation of Mad Dog’s efforts in knife making craftsmanship, they are quite simply incredible. The 2013 SEAL ATAK’s are sold out for this year, but get your name in now for the 2014 SEAL ATAK’s.

Quote from Mad Dog about the 20th Anniversary 2012 SEAL ATAK’s:

“I can say without reservation that these are the most perfect ATAKs that I have ever made. Whomsoever obtains them will have my very best efforts in their collection. For me, the SEAL ATAK is the “Ur Quel” of my basic design ethos, and the ATAK is the hub of the wheel from whence all other designs have flowed along the spokes of various degrees of specialization over the last 20 years. That says a lot about it, but also know that these particular ATAKs have a special meaning for me. They are the examples selected to be the 20th Anniversary ATAKs, and there are only four of them on the entire planet. These 2012 SEAL ATAKs are the best of my best…. and I dare say that’s pretty damned good!”
