Jared Wihongi, renowned martial artist and tactical combat teacher, was instrumental in helping Browning® develop these Black Label Tactical Blades. Hailing from New Zealand, he came to embody the fighting spirit of the Maori warrior. Later, he gained specialized training in edged and impact weapons—and became highly sought after by law enforcement, U.S. Army Special Forces groups, and more to become their instructor in edged weapons.
The knives in this Wihongi Signature collection are an expression of the form and function Wihongi has come to prefer in each style of tactical knife. Each is etched with Maori symbols, which represent a warrior ancestor whose strength and courage is carried with the fighter into battle.
