The Jouf was designed by Bob Terzuola, the godfather of tactical knives, and produced by FOX Knives out of Maniago, Italy. "Produced in Maniago, Italy" is the theme of the entire enterprise for MKM, which is aptly named. This 'brand' is a collection of four of the top knife manufacturers in Italy working together to consolidate and strengthen their commercial contributions to foreign markets.
They've chosen to work with some highly regarded and sought-after American custom makers to launch the brand and they've already made quite a splash. MKM won Knife Collaboration of the Year with Lucas Burnley and Bob Terzuola at the 2018 BLADE Show, while Viper took home Overall Knife of the Year with the SURU and LionSteel won the Manufacturing Quality Award for the third time in five years. A spectacular start, and one that confirms and fuels the mission of the Maniago Knife Makers consortium and the MKM brand: consolidating the value and style of Made in Maniago, by working together as a team.
The Jouf is a purpose-built combat knife designed with ultimate functionality in mind. It's large enough to handle all the necessary cutting tasks while remaining compact enough to have with you at all times. The heart of this knife is the full tang Bohler N690Co stainless steel blade available with either a stonewashed or black Cerakote finish. The removable handles are 3D machined black G10 with a double guard and lanyard hole built in. Each knife ships with a MOLLE compatible black Cordura sheath, ready to be pressed into battle against man or mother nature alike.
