Every man needs a premium blade, meant to be used for a lifetime and passed down to the next generation. Knives are a lot like watches. They are functional tools appreciated for their utility, craftsmanship, and aesthetics. The Mosebey Blade is a tool for the discerning gentleman, “a PhD who can win a bar fight.”

 

The result of a nine-month effort, the Mosebey is a fully customized all-purpose blade made in the USA from premium domestic materials. We made no compromises on the design or craftsmanship of this unique tool for our community.  Limited edition, each blade is individually numbered and serialized.

 

Inspired by the design of a one-off blade W.O.E. purchased while living in Africa, we worked with Marine veteran turned knife maker Connor Toor to bring our tool to life. Each blade is handcrafted in the USA by Toor Corporation from CPM 154 steel and Desert Ironwood for the handle, with both materials being renowned for their toughness. CPM 154 was specifically selected because it is a corrosion and wear-resistant steel with excellent edge retention properties.

 

As with most of our tools, the branding is subtle with a deep laser-engraved W.O.E. spearhead on the blade and another inside the leather sheath. The spearhead is modeled off the insignia originally developed by the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and used by modern-day intelligence and SpecOps units. 

 

Bill Mosebey CIA

The knife is named after Bill “Bwana” Mosebey, a legendary Africa Division Case Officer you’ve probably never heard of. Mosebey spent the majority of his 34-year CIA career on “the Continent” at the height of the Cold War conducting intelligence collection and Covert Action against the Soviet Union. Known for his tailored safari suits and waxed mustache, Mosebey was an avid outdoorsman, woodsman, and historian. A descendant of Civil War spy William Leslie Mosebey, he was a classic gentleman who lived a life of adventure and service to his nation.


After leaving Army Special Forces for CIA, Mosebey rose to Chief of Africa Division and was awarded The William J. Donovan Award and the Distinguished Intelligence Medal. After retiring in 1995, Moseby returned to CIA in the aftermath of the attacks on September 11, 2001.
