Greg Thompson designed the 179 for rescue performance and less-than-lethal self-defense. The tool includes the Benchmade rescue hook design, a carbide glass breaker, O² wrench and the same finger loop and integral sheath design as the rest of the SOCP family.
Greg Thompson is the creator of SOCP (Special Operations Combatives Program), the first officially designated combatives program for all U.S. Army Special Operations Forces. SOCP is now the standard program for fighting in kit, and it has been adopted by all Special forces Groups. Greg also trains federal and state law enforcement, FBI, ATF, Border Patrol, and Special Contract Units. After September 11, 2001, he was one of a small group of civilians who taught Federal Defensive Tactics and Air Marshal hand-to-hand tactics.
Greg has a Master’s Degree in Industrial Design from North Carolina State University and has taken dozens of products to market. Most of his designs are for self-defense or to enhance combative training. He currently has five patents and is the author of H2H Combatives.
