S6-Long Combat Knife “Cross”

The Section 6 Long Combat Knife, lovingly referred to as the S6-LCK “Cross” or rather “Lucky Cross”, is a long knife carried by Section 6 personnel as a simple bladed sidearm and general purpose knife. It carries the appearance of a seemingly generic blade that has the Section 6 logo slapped onto the handle but those lucky enough to wield one know it is so much more.

About the Section 6 Long Combat Knife

Each Section 6 Long Combat Knife is made out of monomolecular-sharpened Aegium with a durable polymer outer coating containing the weapon’s more higher-end functions – an ultrasonic vibration generator and a nanomachine containment/distribution system. The weapon runs on a small power cell built into one half of the handle, the ultrasonic vibration generator is mounted directly onto the tang, and the nanomachine system resides in the other half of the handle - it was designed to be modular in this way for ease of repair, as thewell side of the grip simply unscrews to allow sections to be replaced.

Systems

Below are sections with more in-depth information about the Section 6 “Cross” Long Combat Knife.

Vibroblade

The ultrasonic vibration generator mounted to the knife’s tang causes the blade to vibrate at an incredible speed, making even the slightest glancing blow a much more vicious injury.

Self-Mending

Each weapon contains a measure of nanomachines that repair the blade and maintain the monomolecular edge it carries. Each knife contains enough nanomachines to fully rebuild the blade once.

Monomolecular Edge

The weapon’s Aegium blade has been sharpened down to a single atom at its thinnest point, making it sharp enough of a blade to slice through flesh with ease.

Power Supply

The weapon contains a highly efficient power supply that only activates to power the blade when the weapon is held, either converting the holder’s escaping body heat into an electrical charge or feeding off of other sources such as a suit or charging station. The blade is also able to be charged via its universal power port located in the weapon’s pommel.

Without a method of being charged - if the weapon's user is wearing an insulated suit without its own power source, for example - the cell within the grip will last one month.

Shock Blade

The knife is able to output its stored electrical charge into the blade, causing the blade to either dump the entire charge into the blade for a devastating electrical surge or a lower-yield option that causes the blade to crackle with electrical energy that can cause other electrical systems to malfunction on contact depending on how well protected they are - the wielder decides which is used.
