Attleboro Commemorative Knife
The story behind ?The Attleboro? is a true story of sacrifice and honor. In
1966, the Vietnam War was escalating with operations ever increasing. The
conventional war was intensifying with the largest battle up to that point in
the war looming on the horizon. In III Corps, Tay Ninh Province, along the
Cambodian border just northwest of Saigon Operation Attleboro commenced.
Its goal was to find, then destroy the North Vietnamese Army (NVA) and Viet
Cong (VC) logistical resources, plus any enemy units operating in the area.
Attleboro would slow enemy support and infiltration into the Saigon III Corps
area. Among this operation was a very unconventional unit, the III Corps
MIKE (Mobile Strike) Force, led by an Army Special Forces (SF) Team and
manned by ethnic Chinese Nung soldiers.
The Attleboro knife is a combat utility knife designed by retired U.S. Special
Forces operators to commemorate the ultimate sacrifice made by Army
Special Forces MSG William B. Hunt and to honor all the military members
involved in Operation Attleboro during the Vietnam War. His heroic actions
during the battle saved lives, but he was wounded and lost. He was declared
Missing In Action for ten years with the Army declaring a presumptive death
in 1976. With this profound history in mind, we bring to you, the ?Attleboro?.
The Attleboro knife has an American made stainless S-35VN blade in a
spear point design with an aggressive top swedge, black graphite cerakote
coating on the blade, and Friends of NRA logo on the tactical grip. The blade
has unique slanted serrations for better cutting and a large hollow grind for
a precise cutting angle. Each knife comes with a certificate and a special
challenge coin. This collectible is 100% American made by Attleboro Knives
exclusively for 2020 Friends of NRA events and is limited to 1,130 units.
