I have quite an avid collection of Skallywag blades and this one, like the others is outstanding. Awesome components, very well made and sharp. Some of the best made blades out there. Huzzahhhhh

I love this dagger. It was the same one I had on the set of Superman and I wanted to have a memento to the experience. The quality can definitely be seen in these blades!

I have been waiting for at least two years for these to be back in stock. When they became available, I was super stoked! I purchased the standard D2 versions with trainers. I will say that this knife is heavy compared to the trainer. This is due to the difference in materials; mainly due to the fact that the trainer is manufactured from aluminum. The trainer is a definite must being that the live blade is extremely sharp upon purchasing. The mdv is so sharp that when removing from the sheath s...

Skallywag never disappoints and they didn’t with this knife. It’s well-made, as expected from Skallywag, and sharp as can be. The handle was a bit smaller than I thought it would be but still fits my hand. I added a small paracord lanyard to ensure no fumbling if I have to draw it in a hurry. It’s a nice “little” addition to my Skallywag collection.

I have aways carried folders and pocket knives . I like how this knife is designed light but 💪 strong , and the rhino horn S. Is the frosting on the cake. Top shelf CO and products.

This baby is awesome! I’ve been looking for a top quality push knife for a long time. Most I’ve found are ridiculously expensive, or poor quality. The Duggan feels good in my hand, the blade is great quality and extremely sharp. I also love the size of it, small enough to EDC.

Excellent Functioning Knife Definitely Quailty Solid The blade is perfect length as EDC and I use it for my work all the time the knife base is also Quailty Solid there is no play with blade to the knife base I like the feel in my hand not cumbersome I am never disappointed with SkallyWag knifes I've purchased a few thru out the years and they're all still in Excellent condition even with their continuous everyday use Thanks SkallyWag for building Solid knives will continue to buy more througho...

It may be a mini but, it's a maxi to me! This knife cuts like a razor! All I did was strop the blade. Now I got a 2" scalpel. Well made. I was nervous because of the price being low, but I am ecstatic on this blade. My new edc, in my front pocket. I plan on buying more from skallywag in the future. Pete P.

I love your knives and the practicality they offer. I own a lot of knives and I would say that your knives just became my number one carry for everyday. Thanks for making such a great product.

Great folder, larger and heavier than expected, smooth ball bearing action. Solid lock, and good steel, exactly what I’ve come to expect from Skallywag. I picked up one for dad and a few others for myself, my brother, nephew, etc,…

This was worth the wait.. I was able to get both the blade and the trainer.. I love the quality of this trainer.. alot of trainers kinda seem like a after thought, I'm here to tell you this one isn't. If you get the MVD+1 you owe it to yourself to get the trainer also .. and FYI get two rolls of monkey tape.

I needed a new EDC and I knew I wanted something similar to what I was already carrying. My friend showed me his privateer and it fit the bill perfectly. Nice weight, sharp blade, quick and easy to open. This was my first Skallywag knife, but it won’t be my last.

Skallywag, yous did it to me again lol. You made another product I absolutely love. Firstly, lemme say that I am a HUGE fan of the Skallywag Daggers (both aluminum and steel) because of their design and operator friendly functionality. With that being said, I’ve always been curious of the MDV+1 design. And like when I bought my Daggers (and any combat tool I acquire/if feasible) I bought the MDV trainer first and used it during my CQB and BJJ sparring. Right off the bat, I absolutely fell in lov...

Great Knife, strong frame, smooth action and very well sharpened. Perfect EDC blade, simple, tough and practical, blade shape is a nice departure from the norm, quite unique looking but very functional. Highly recommended.

I love this blade! Very cool and effective design. I have fairly large hands and I can get all four fingers wrapped around the grip. And that's not always possible on most easily concealed self-defense knives. Highly recommended.

Actually my bride got this one for me because I was torn between the orange and the purple Mantis. I didn't want to be greedy so, I chose the orange, and she surprised me with the purple 💜. I love that she gets me. Yes, as you can see I added my own flare. LIL MANTis man lanyard for ease of deployment, retention and acquisition. The clip is so it can easily be transferred to different carry positions or equipment. ie high, low, small of the back etc. You get the picture. I think a kydex sheath...

I bought this MDV folder back in October as a “blem” blade. After receiving it I couldn’t find a scratch on it. I did some research and it was sold as a “blem” because the glass breaker would come loose. I enjoyed this because I took the glass breaker off anyway. Although I haven’t had to use this knife (I bought it strictly as a self defense weapon) I carry it everyday. It has held up well being carried daily and is super lightweight. I have the original MDV+1 as well and couldn’t recommend the...

So far seems to be a good knife. Haven’t had the opportunity to use it yet in the kitchen. Just beware, the sheath leaves little strands in the knife so be sure to wipe it off before using it

Man what a fun tool! I have yet to use it but just holding it in your hand is a satisfying experience. I can’t say I’m surprised because this is my 5th or 6th Skallywag blade but it keeps reinforcing my appreciation for the work these guys put out. Oh, and it’s worth mentioning that this was a blem item but the only issue is cosmetic: blade, spike, and handle are all exactly as you’d expect. Thanks guys!

The MDV is the ultimate carry knife. I have it affixed to my belt with the retention holster ranger-style, accessible with either left or right hand. I love it & never leave home without it. I also ordered the trainer--I don't love it. Should fit the same sheath in order to practice draw.

The MDV +1 is a knife with a purpose - providing you with one of the ultimate bladed tools for use in self-defense. It's diminutive size allows for easy concealment, while the shape was purposely designed to enhance your ability to defend your person. Like many Skallywag Tactical blades, it's lethally sharp, and can handle the job for which it was designed. The rhino sheath is simply genius. I bought one for my wife, one for myself, and two trainers. Thanks to the Skallywag crew for selling such...

Love the blade, glad I got damascus version as it gives a few extra style points. Feels great in the hand and the low profile makes it great for edc. no printing with this guy. Rhino sheath design is awesome. Thanks for making such a great product at a reasonable price point for us normal people.

James W.
I love the design of the MDV. I actually thought a trainer was going to be included with the purchase of the Damascus version. 🤷🏻‍♂️ I also think that the retention of the sheath isn’t quite right, even after adjusting the bands. I’d better acquire another rhino sheath and some extra bands to see if I can get a bit more of a secure retention feeling. The rhino sheath that came with it just doesn’t seem to allow the knife to snap into a firmly held place, so I’m afraid it might fall out if I move...

As alway a great product at a great price. This is my 6th or 7th blemished blade from Skallywag and have never had an issue with any of them, real work horses. Will defiantly buy more.

From the packaging to the heft and feel of the blade I am very happy with it! This will be the knife I carry with me while I hunt in the Colorado wilderness. The blade is exceptionally thick and incredibly sharp. The handle feels sturdy and sure in the hand. I bought this as a blemish as I had been debating buying the knife full price. I’m glad I waited because there is no discernible blemish I can find and I got the blade for an awesome price! This is not my first Skallywag knife nor will it be...

I’m sooo pleased that it got through Customs! Such things are always a concern nowadays here in Canada! This knife is a thing of beauty! Extremely well designed! It feels very solid and the Damascus steel seems to be of a very high quality! It will be very useful no matter what kind of grip is used! I even like how the handle can be used as an eye gouge! I WILL be getting another one!! Thank you Skallywag!!😊👍

Outstanding fit and finish, build quality is top notch in everything purchased so far. Went up on the Armory wall with a pair of Skallywag Valhalla to keep them company, among other implements. I have always been overwhelmingly happy with shipping, quality, and customer service from Skallywag. Top tier end to end.

As always with Skallywag…fast shipping, nice packaging, well built product, razor sharp. This is the sharpest out-of-the-box knife by far! Great EDC knife. Though it’s not designed for self-defense, it could definitely be used to protect yourself. Great looking knife, tough but not bulky. Fits inside pocket nicely.

As many folks here, I debated about this one for some time. I figured "Zombie Apocalypse" tool. Reading the comments on how well it performed finally sold me. I've got a long history of blade training, and have always wanted one this size. I did not realize how much I would enjoy doing drills and cuts with it. Excellent grip design, I have huge hands. Love the hand and half grip, and all the options of use it allows. Truly a superb blade I am so happy with! P.S. practicing with it is a great arm...

This is the second “blemished” blade I’ve purchased and I can’t tell where it’s blemished. I have the fixed blade MDV Plus One and bought the titanium folding version only because it was such a good deal. Again, I can’t tel where it’s blemished and, like all of Skallywag’s products, this one is solid and razor sharp.

I have the guardian and had not given any thought to this dagger The Damascus was enough to give me a push and give it a shot My first thought was this is so much smaller than the guardian And that is what makes this a perfect EDC It is so easily concealed and to be honest almost too good lookin to carry It has immediately become part of my EDC I will have to buy a D2 and aluminum versions as well

I can’t say enough good things about the this Skallywag Duclaw. First time I saw this knife about a year ago, I fell in love with the aesthetics. I should’ve pulled the trigger back then, but due to other obligations, I did not. About 8 months later saw that they no longer sold them on the regular site (due to retirement of this particular line) and that I could only purchase it on the blem blade site and I needed to jump on it ASAP…. And man, I am extremely glad that I did!!! It is now part of...

Jesus G.
I love this knife it is perfect as a gift for loved ones who are scared of knifes or cutting themselves, a real confidence builder, for someone looking to carry a self defense weapon with very low risk of hiring them selves when utilized. It also “looks scary” according to every one who has seen it, giving the user a psychological advantage against threats.

If this is a Blem, I can’t tell. I have been through several sets of kitchen knives and they were only “okay.” This set is heirloom quality. My wife went to cut sweet potatoes and it was like a knife through soft butter. I love the heft and solid feel of steel in hand. One of my best purchases and soon to be, all time most-used Skallywag knife/knives.

The best edc knife I can imagine. Pair it with the Rhino sheath for the ultimate combo. Holds an edge well and easy to sharpen, I'd love a special run of these in a super steel. It's light enough to forget about while wearing it all day. Very versatile in use and quick deploying. This is my second MDV, more of a backup in case something ever happens to the first.

It's is everything claimed: exceptional design, fit, and craftsmanship. Quality in everyway. I have huge hands, this is the best fitting small fixed blade defense knife I've held. Secure regardless of which grip, and drawable under pressure. Note my tape job: thin band inside the 1st finger to secure the hold there and the thumb. The middle bump between fingers to lock it. The pinky finger small wrap to give a tactile "purchase"- gives feedback and a little lock in to know when it is seated by ...
