The Orthrus was designed by Tony Sentmanat combining all of his combatives knowledge and experience into one blade. A blade designed for survival and self defense to give the end user multiple options for a fixed blade. Tony wanted a blade that would be efficient and deadly for every movement, regardless of how you hold the knife and whether you were cutting or stabbing. After a year designing and testing the Othrus was born and the only one of a kind 2 position fixed blade.
