The C.I.A. Covert Cutter is an update to the classic, but decades-old, C.I.A. Letter Opener for the new millennium. This updated version is made from GV3H, the high-tech composite from Switzerland made with 30% glass fibers. This completely non-metallic device provides superior plunging power as well as a hard edge. The scalloped serrated edge on one side gives additional opening power on fibrous materials. The built-in clip eliminates the need for a sheath since it can clip directly to a belt, pants, sock, etc. The contoured handle is comfortable to hold and has a thumb depression for a secure grip. There is a hole in the handle for attachment of a lanyard. The C.I.A. Covert Cutter is completely non-metallic, non-magnetic, and non-absorbent, making this a perfect item for EOD personnel.
