This is the tape we use on the MDV Plus One knife and trainer.
1/8th" Monkey tape.
We do not have a wholesale account with this company so we are just buying it and reselling it.. If you want to buy several rolls for other things you no doubt can get a better deal on their website..
We just have it available in one roll quantities for your convenience.
One roll will do one blade if you want to cover the whole handle.
What a great little product!! I used it to wrap the grip of my old sailors knife and a the handle of a small viking axe. Great stuff. It stays in place and helps give a much better grip. The olive drap color is perfect as I neither wanted or needed hi vis for the projects. Monkey tape is freaking awesome thanks!!!
The MDV carries well. It doesn't matter if you hook it behind your belt, put in in the pocket using the rhino sheath or if one decides to use the other sheath and attach it to the belt. I will be purchasing the trainer soon. For a fixed blade fighting knife it's become a favorite of my along with my Shivworks Clinchpick.
excellent blade, can't wait for more to be available.
Great trainer for an exact duplicate to the real one. Fits the sheath. Highly recommend for the practice.
Love the knife and sheaths, waiting for the black monkey tape to come in stock, so I can buy that and the trainer!
I'm not even sure how or where I stumbled across Skallywag Tactical. I am very glad I did!! My first order was fairly modest, mainly to support a veteran owned company. After receiving my order, which was all from the blemished menu. I was very happy with the quality of knives, so much so that I thinks I've made like 4 orders since .. there's something for everyone.. I've already given a few out for gifts and I will be purchasing more for future gifts and for personal, whether it's a pocket knife or an EDC , who knows, maybe that kitchen set will come home with me one day!! Top Quality Product!! I've been showing off my new collection every chance I get! I even got my cousin hooked and he's made multiple purchases .
Necessary if you buy the mdv+1 knife
Great product and works well when pared with the MDV. Application is simple and really creates a good grip on the knife.
The monkey tape works as described! It was easy to apply and provides a firm grasp.
I really like the Damascus blade. Very nice knife. The pen is nice too
I really like how the monkey tape works when you are putting it on the MDV. I feel it really enhance my grip. Plus I have more that enough for my next purchase.
I watched your video on how and where to install the tape and it was pretty spot on for my grip
Works as advertised for the MDV. Adds customized traction to the handle.
Adding the monkey tape to the MDV Plus One's gives you that little extra control needed during use and deployment. It stays in place in the hand reasonably well when using as support. I may wrap an additional node in the center for a little extra control.
The tape is a must! It allows you to make the knife really part of your hand! If you have ever done any grappling training you know how important good athletic tape is and the fact that this is already cut into a small strip makes it so easy to apply exactly how you want. Holds up great! I carry every day and train with it 3-4 times a week and only have to change it out once a week after Extreme use and wear and tear. Highly recommend! 10 out of 10!
Can't quite bring myself to put this on my Damascus MDV. I think I'll just have to go ahead and order one of the regular D-2 MDVs before I go ahead with customization using the monkeytape. Looks like good stuff though. Hard to say without using it first but the tack on the adhesive side looks like it should be pretty effective stuff.
GREAT COMPANY !! WILL ORDER FROM THEM AGAIN !! THANK YOU !!
Love this blade so much I bought a second one!! I do prefer the RHINO sheath (it literally has unlimited possibilities, I have used it with different size belts from 2½" work belt to 1¼ dress belt, secured with drawstring on sweats, & athletic shorts, on jeans (at waiste) without belt, throw in hoodie pocket, & with practice blade in gi pants, & spatz! When I thought it couldn't be more perfect I added the monkey tape to live blades & trainers the added grip in hand, along with concealed dexterity manipulation has been a joy to train with now 18 months later I write this review with thousands of drill reps "under the belt" & have nothing but positive things to say GET THE KNIFE, GET THE TRAINER, GET THE RHINO SHEATH, & GET THE MONKEY TAPE These additions to your EDC kit will with practice become your most carried 2nd option. Did I mention you can have a full grip shooting CQB & INSTANTLY put blade into action defensively or offensively? Practice,practice,practice the best plan is well thought out & practiced!!
Giving your blade the ability to have a perfect grip tailored to your hand in the most minimalistic fashion. Makes the world of difference with blade manipulations as well
Works very well for providing grip for the mdv plus one. Doesn’t feel super sticky but holds in place very well. Edges of the tape start to fray after about a week of constant use but there’s still so much left on the roll it’s not a big deal at all.
It's very easy to manage, during application. The overall tactile feel is consistently comfortable. I like the product.
i used it to wrap my cold steel spike it gave a way better grip than the cord i used the rest on the aluminum dagger to give it a better grip thanks for the great product
I used monkey tape on both MDVs and like MIKE D says its a must for a more secure grip plus it makes the knives even look better and more tactical. As you can see in my photo I sharpened the red trainer on my WORKSHOP GUIDED STONE SHARPENER and it came up really nice and sharp. I could have made it better but as long as there is a sharp point on it thats all you need for what these knives are meant for. But overall great package with top tier materials and thought of mind in this.
Perfect tape for the purpose of adding grip, and proper repeatable grip placement for your knife.
It comes one roll in a zip lock bag. It is enough for the blade and the trainer with plenty left over. It is a good solution if you don’t want to order 4+ rolls and have a bunch left over.
