AMP Suit Knife
The form of this device, which looks like a large knife, was a deliberate design choice by the manufacturer; early prototypes with this admittedly comic shape proved very popular with defense buyers, AMP suit drivers with a “special ops” mindset. As a consequence, the more practical “square” and “V” cutters were eventually phased out in favor of the large knife shape. Originally fixed to the underside of the AMP Suit forearm, this was later changed to modular “free” use. This proved safer during non-lethal riot control, when the the AMP suit used by police did not include a large, fixed cutting edge. On Pandora, the high tensile alloy cutter is used primarily as a path clearing tool when the AMP Suit vehicle is moving through dense brush environments.
