In the novel SERPENT, Ron Darling, the author uses the BATTLE BLADES KNIVES system as an important addition to the black ops specialists arsenal. Nick Washburn, the hero of the story, knows the value of a weapon like this. In times where you can’t risk a shot... having the blade handy in a sheath that won’t let it come out is a vitally important part of his arsenal. Always handy on the rail of their chosen rifle, Nick and his men have one more tool to fight the bad guys. The system will also be featured in Ron’s upcoming follow-up novel SCORPION coming in 2012.
