Currently, there is a lack of custom, tactical sub-hilt fighters being made. For various reasons, knifemakers like Walter Brend, Bill Luckett, Jim Siska, and Schuyler Lovestrand, (just to name a few) are no longer making their much sought after classic sub-hilt fighters.

With this in mind, RCC commissioned David Broadwell to make 5 Limited-Edition tactical sub-hilt fighters exclusively for their Vanguard line of knives.  Les has mentioned David’s abilities in several articles over the last 20+ years in regards to sub-hilts. Broadwell has created knives in the past for both the LDC and Vanguard series. Les will tell you he thinks Dave builds some of the best sub-hilt knives in the world!
