N81 Guardian and DNC Guardian Giveaway! Wednesday 1/17 1pm est

The long awaited N81 Guardian is ready for release. Let’s get to it!

illpro x SWK N81 Guardian
Named in honor of those who protect on all fronts, The Guardian is the ideal tactical blade to conserve space on your persons or kit. The Guardian’s 1 4/16″ ring allows for easy draw with or without gloves. Additionally, the blade is ground with an American Tanto grind, which leaves two sharp edges ideal for prying and slicing. The signature textured handle eliminates any chance of the blade sliding when wet, and maintains smooth contours for comfort. 

Each Guardian is handcrafted in the Stand Watch manufacturing facility in Northern California and includes a black KYDEX sheath.

Steel: S35VN Steel 
Cerakote: N81
Length: 9″ x 1 1/16″
Price: $425
40 Available, exclusively on the illpro website

illpro x SWK DNC Guardian Raffle
As many of you know the original batch of N81 Guardians was lost in a UPS fire in mid-October. We had paid SWK in full for the blades and all was lost. But the guys at Stand Watch Knives are solid dudes and assured us they would take the hit and remake all the knives. They lost A LOT of money on this project but did what most of us would do in that situation. To show appreciation we decided to take one of the blades, cerakote it in another pattern and raffle it off in hopes to raise money for a small business that took one on the chin for us. Some lucky person will win a one-off DNC Guardian. Raffle tickets are AVAILABLE NOW on the illpro website for $5 each. Purchase as many as you want to increase your chances of winning. We will announce the winner on IG Live January 31st at 8pm est.
