In the US Army, units and individual teams are given call signs to avoid giving away identities over enemy radios. The number after the call sign signifies your role within the unit. The number 6 is the command element. In 2003-2004 an elite Army Infantry unit, call sign "Scorpion" roamed the mountains of Afghanistan looking to make friends with the locals. This is where Scorpion 6 came from.
After leading over 26 successful operations and countless patrols Shane exited the US Army with an honorable discharge and went into the automotive field. While in the automotive industry he had the ability to work in all areas from sales, racing, technician, parts and service. Going to bigger and faster machines he graduated into the aviation field where Shane spent the majority of his time servicing and handling private jets.
A few more years passed and Shane started working for a knife manufacturing company. During this time period he learned an overwhelming set of skills from other great craftsmen ranging from grinding to machining to advanced folding knife assembly. After a few years of experience he wrote and produced a manual for free hand grinding and assembly as well as introduced methods for advanced repair/diagnostics and custom finishing techniques. It was at this pinnacle where Shane decided to branch out on his own and create Scorpion 6 Knives. At not even 1 year in business, Scorpion 6 Knives had been entered for multiple national knife awards, took in Shane's wife Katie as a full time powerhouse and was published in the December 2017 issue of Knives Illustrated. They have since been published four more times in international prints. You can find Scorpion 6 Knives from the front-lines to the pockets of blue collar Americans to even an occasional rock star.
