Back in July of 2013 Entrek received an e-mail suggesting a new model for the Entrek USA line. The suggestion was to modify the already vastly popular 11 Bravo so that it would have a blade length, measured from the notch, of 5 3/4". Thus giving the person carrying it a useful utility knife that would also be an effective survival knife.


The person that suggested this new knife mentioned that he was a former Spec Ops specialist, the first officer in charge of the SERE program at the JFK Special Warfare Center at Ft. Bragg. CW3 Roque (Rocky) Gonzalez (Ret.) Assigned to SERE, 2nd Bn. 1st Special Warfare Training Group from 1984-1993. He has an extensive list of credits including serving as the course developer of the Army's only Resistance Training Program.


When someone like Rocky comes with an idea for a purpose built knife, he is listened to. Therefore, Entrek came up with the 18 Bravo named in honour of the Special Forces 18B Sergeant.


They have decided to produce a limited run of 500 numbered knives to honour those who have been associated with the SERE schools in whatever capacity whether administrative, instructor or student; certain that this training has saved the lives of many high risk personnel. The knife is standard 440C heat treated to 57-58 RC double drawn with sand blast finish, black canvas Micarta handle, with Kydex sheath. Knives start with serial #011-500.

    18 Bravo

    Posted by SteelHeadSteve on 11th Feb 2016

    Entrek knives are hand-made in the USA. Check out the videos part 1-4 at the Entrek site or entrekknives on Youtube. The 440C they use has a thorough cryo-heat treatment. So, the 18 Bravo has great jimping and a beautiful hollow-ground blade. It has a wide polished bevel and a contoured handle. It is sand/bead blasted tip to butt. This fixed-blade is tough, not pretty. Blade - 6.25" inc. ricasso. Handle - 4.5". Stock - 6.47mm. Balance point - hilt (scale end). All specs. approx. There is a video of the 11 Bravo on Youtube by "QuietBearr". It arrives with a regular kydex scabbard, that is a push-fit not click-fit. It has a 1.5" belt-loop. Thanks to HH for a great price. I am very pleased with my purchase.
