The CAC® is TB Outdoor's response to the request expressed by the French army, namely, to design a robust, ambidextrous knife, which can be opened and closed with one hand. It is much more technical and ambitious than its predecessors. Tarrerias-Bonjean collaborated with Phlippe PEROTTI to create this exceptional knife. TB Outdoor also wanted to collaborate with Benchmade® to integrate the Axis lock® locking mechanism into the CAC®. Extremely robust, this mechanism ensures flawless blade locking in the open position. In 2017, the CAC® was officially selected in the face of many competing products, for its performance, quality and price, by the French army. Its diffusion in the various army corps began at the beginning of 2018 and will largely equip our soldiers at least until 2022. The blade, made of Nitrox® whose edge is mixed smooth + serrassions, is perfectly resistant to corrosion. The handle consists of two polymer plates loaded with glass fibers. These plates are mechanically screwed in by stainless steel screws, one of which cleverly houses a strap cutter blade.

What is PA6 FV ?
PA6 is a polyamide, that is to say a technical thermoplastic. We have selected a PA6 FV for our collection of Outdoor knives, that is to say that it is loaded with fiberglass. The fact of integrating glass fiber into the polyamide makes it possible to form a three-dimensional network of the skeleton of the part. The technical properties of PA6 FV are very similar to those of metals in terms of deformation, creep characteristics and energy absorption.
