I got this knife today, and immediately knew I needed to review it. See, I picked this knife because it was in top reviews, and it had the features I was looking for (serrated, carbon steel or AUS-8, low price point, etc..

I later went back to the reviews here, and a ton of them scared the crap out of me. The biggest one being people claiming the locking mechanism didn't come down far enough to lock the blade into place.... I'm including up close pictures so you can see this knife for yourself.

It's a good, solid build. Much better than what I expected $12 to get me. I recently paid $22 for an AUS8 knife which wasn't nearly as nice as this one is. Razor sharp edges, even at the serrated portion. The clip is heavy duty metal, and is screwed into the frame.

There's good weight to it which indicates it's good metal, but it's still lightweight enough to make a great pocketknife. Most importantly about the weight is when it's open, it's actually balanced towards the center - the ultimate mark of a great knife.

It's a very nice knife. I bought it largely for the look of it. I like the blackened steel and red-orange wood handle combination. It's a beautiful, classic-looking design. The overall construction seems solid, if not a little heavy for its size.

One feature I particularly like is the glass breaker at the butt of the handle. It adds to its practicality and usefulness in self-defense. The spring and lock action also seems very good, and the blade flips open and locks into place very cleanly and decisively.

The blade geometry is great, and the blade itself is wicked sharp. There is one very significant design flaw, however, which I caught right away: The clip on the handle is upside down! By that, I mean that the clip should connect to the knife near the knife butt, not up at the top where the blade pivots and swings into play.Why?

This is my current EDC that I have been cherishing for the past two months. After such extensive usage, I know have a better insight into how to leverage this tool to its maximum potential and bring out the best features that come along with it.

First, it's surprisingly slim for all the features that packed in there so this knife does pack a heavy punch for something in its class. I also consider it to be lightweight among other competitors that is try to accomplish the multi-tool.

It comes with the main blade, which can be locked into place after deployment and you can retract it by pushing the lever side way. Noted that the blade is made out of stainless steel so it'll last you for years to come and in my experience, it open boxes like butter.

The plier is sitting right next to the main blade and require a bit more strength to deploy but nothing to be worried about because it'll loosen up as you use it. The screwdriver is almost an extension of the tool because it comes in the package but not necessary onto the tool so it requires some quick modifications but it's seamless and serve it purpose.

Overall an Amazing knife... Pro's: Very strong, heavy, and feels like an extension of your hand. Perfect if you have larger hands like I do. The belt clip is strong, the finish is nice, and the hardware used seems very strong.

Con's: I only have 2 complaints! But it is why I didn't award this product with 5 stars and I'll share why. Only the tip (About an inch worth) was sharpened. I had to hone the rest by hand on my stones.

This also means that the edge didn't look properly refined from the start, or had a very poor sharpening angle. This could have been done intentionally, but I don't recall reading it anywhere in the description. I will update this review if the seller responds to me.

The last complaint I have is about the spring assist. Most of the time when I purchase a knife with a spring assist, I expect it to assist me. Unfortunately, this knife doesn't have much of an assist (If any).

Seems very good (for the price). For the light to work - mine came with 4 batteries. Pull the light out of the knife (it's held in by a magnet - other review said it falls out but stays put for me).

Unscrew it, bang the open tube on a table to get the stack of 4 batteries out, remove little plastic disc preventing battery contact. Put the batteries back in with the larger side facing into the tube (smaller battery end facing up), screw light back into tube.

Light turns on by screwing in tighter, so back it off when not in use. Flint stick is at the opposite end, in the same part, as the light. It friction fits into the barrel of the knife.

Sadly, I lost this knife on a recent remodeling job. It is however a handy tool, as much as a self-defense knife. I used the blade to open boxes, cut fishing line, the seatbelt cutter also works well for fishing line.

I kept it in my truck's dashboard, but we were out in the mountains working on a house and I've misplaced it either inside the house or outside the house. It's a 2 hour drive from where I live so I'm just going to buy myself a replacement.

The pros of this knife include:Small, pocket size, not heavy. Serrated blade section is much handier than you'll realize until you've used it. I'll list a few things I've used it for below. Has the hopefully never needed window breaker on the end and a seatbelt cutter that has multiple uses.

Comes with an integrated belt clip. The only real con is the blade is painted and the paint does chip and scratch pretty much right from the first time you use it. Several uses I've used it for:Door frames in older houses are often slightly warped and/or don't fit a new door right.

Kershaw 1025X Multifunction Performance Stonewashed Cover
Kershaw

I own several Kershaw knives (as well as Zero Tolerance knives - higher end knives made by same company as Kershaw), so I am a fan of Kershaws. Still, I was skeptical that even Kershaw could manufacture a knife so small with the same tight tolerances, blade sharpness and strength and ergonomics as their larger blades.

But, I needed a key-ring knife AND when I found this one made by Kershaw for under $10, I figured it was a chance worth taking. When I got this knife and started to use it my skepticism was immediately abandoned.

This is definitely a Kai knife (Kershaw's parent company), which means it is high quality all the way. This knife is sharp, locks up tight, is easy to grip and doesn't slip in your hand. It's super small and I don't even notice the extra item on my key-ring.

Excuse the photos, the knife has been through a lot. Good solid steel construction, smooth spring assist opening.Heavy/solid knife. Pocket clip on the underside holds knife securely to whatever it's clipped to, the clip does have a characteristic I am not happy with though, it turns outward at the end which allows it to scratch anything you might rub up against by accident, such as your cars finish, your child's sensitive skin (if carried in a front pocket as I do clipped to the side of your hip), I've also had it snag on leather seats while reaching into my work truck, it didn't cause damage, however it easily could have.

The frame is very solid and on the slightly "bulky" side. The serrated blade is a HUGE PLUS! It's a must when you need that added sawing action to slice through the harder to cut items (rope, plastic strapping etc).

This knife is huge!A monster sized killing weapon. It is not a self defense weapon. Its a leathal instrument of death. In the hands of a highly skilled knife fighter it can be used in a controlled, precission manner.

Thereby inflicting minimum damage to an attacker(s). However, most people do not meet the criteria of a skilled knife fighter. Thus running the risk of accidentally killing someone with this knife. Turningyour would-be self defense event into a one way trip to prison for killing someone accidentally.

All this now said.... This knife arrived with an edge as sharp as any razor blade I have ever shaved with!!! The point was sooooo sharp, it will puncture through layers of clothing like butter. And the blade is as well very long.

This knife may be outright illegal to CARRY outside your home in some states. Because the blade is so big. So check with the laws in your state before you buy if you intend to use this knife as an EDC item outside your home.

Opinel Carbon Blade Folding Knife Cover
Opinel

I had my first Opinel for about a year or 2 before I lost it in school one day. Once I realized I lost it, I was panicking and heartbroken as I had customized it a bit and there was quite a bit of sentiment with it.

I couldn't be a day without it and so ordered another one asap. I've now had my current one going on 3 years now and intend to keep adding onto that time. The knife is just so damn amazing for the price you pay for it.

It's design is elegantly simple, yet extremely useful. The blade shape and length of my No. 8 is the perfect length for pretty much everything minus fighting a bear or something. It is extremely easy to sharpen and gets almost scalpel sharp especially with the carbon steel.

Speaking of, you have a choice of either drying and lubricating it constantly, or force a patina using lemon juice or something to decrease chance of rust. I chose the latter with occasional oiling(use mineral oil, it does the job and lets you use your knife for food prep, cuz who wants to eat 3 in 1 or gun oil amirite?

This is exactly the knife i was looking for. Its big and SOLID and doesn't cost a fortune. Just an FYI - not really made by S&W, just uses their branding. Its made by Taylor Brands. Grip: The grip has textured inserts that are extremely gritty, and combined with the finger grooves and thumb groove provide excellent grip.

The grip frame is made of steel and the grip facade is (anodized? Aluminum plates and then the rhino liner like gritty inserts. Knife can only be properly held in one position - blade up, edge facing away. Blade: Chinese steel, but sure to meet the desired contractor's hardness specs.

Taylor Brands website shows this blade as 7Cr17 steel which is about 440A SS to us in the US. Blade is thick, and sharp. No nasty machining marks and the coating is perfect. The blade can be opened and locked into position with minimal force, one handed using the thumb assist.

Cold Steel Latin D-Guard Machete 18" Cover

Ok.Just finished testing it out. So lets get this started. Cold Steel Tactical Wakazashi tanto review:First off Id like to commend Amazon for another speedy delivery. I ordered this on the third.Got it on the 5. Five stars for amazon yay..Why did I buy this?: well I was looking on a cheap alternative to replace my Condor el Salvador.

I needed something that needed more combat oriented capabilities. Something of the same size as my Condor, or close enough, easy to carry, easy to maintain, and could keep a sharp edge for a reasonable amount of time.So how did it do?

Steel: 1055 high carbon steel tempered to, what my best guess is, a spring temper. Maybe it says so in the discription and a I missed it.It happens. 1055 is an incredibly tough steel and when its tempered correctly as a knife the result is a tool/weapon that will survive most anything.

A harder knife blade can perform better than a softer blade. Toughness is the ability to resist chipping, cracking or breaking.

Kershaw Shuffle Folding Multi Function Multiple Cover
Kershaw

The perfect "girlfriend knife". If you're like me and have trouble convincing your girlfriend that she needs to carry a pocketknife if she wants to do stuff like backpacking Isle Royale, then buy her a shuffle. I gave a purple one to my girlfriend and a teal one to my mom (who is also a backpacking-interested woman who doesn't normally think much of pocketknives) and both of their reactions were the same: whoa, cool!

Its so CUTE, which it most definitely is, but also seems to be a perfectly decent pocketknife. The blade, pivot, etc all seem sturdy, it's easy to grip. The bottle opener is maybe slightly gimmicky but hey, why not? It's not like it makes the knife bulkier or reduces functionality in any way, and beer drinking ladies (or gents, not saying this knife is *only* for ladies, just that it seems to appeal greatly to them) will probably get plenty of use out of it.

Beautiful, absolutely gorgeous knife. It's well weighted and feels wonderful in the hand. The kraton grip fits right in, no matter your hand size.

Honesty, I am a little disappointed with the weird black coating. It makes it feel like a cheap kiddy ninja knife, but it's not a bad tradeoff for not having to keep the blade oiled, and hey, it looks and feels badass.

The sheath is an exceptional feature of this sale. It's practically indestructible and versatile in ways of carrying. You could pretty much carry any way you want, whether on your belt, strapped to your leg, or attached to your molle pack; sideways, upright, upsidedown, what have you.

Tactical Knives Buying Guide

In broad strokes, we can differentiate two types: the fixed blade and the folding ones. The first is the classics, those who received the denomination of “tacticians” before. But over the years, manufacturers have focused on other features such as portability and concealment, which are reflected in the folding models.

To correctly choose a tactical knife, we need to look at something more than an affiliated blade. Depending on how we plan to use the knife, we must look for specific characteristics, such as material, the alloy used, resistance to external agents, etc.

Below we detail the aspects that, an expert opinion, should be valued when choosing the tactical knife that best suits your needs:

Colors

The choice of color is not just an aesthetic issue. Black finishes will always have a market, whether professional or casual. Either because of the absence of reflections necessary for certain operations or because it reminds us of the classic models of the movies and that attracts other types of buyers.

On the other hand, more striking colors such as yellow or red stand out more against certain surfaces such as snow, or water, so they are used by other types of units, such as firefighters, lifeguards, rescue teams, etc.

Weight

One of the basic requirements for tactical knives is portability, so weight plays a very important factor in this. In the end, everything will depend on the use that you are going to give it, but in general, if you need to cut vegetation, for example, it may be better to look for another type of additional knife, always valuing weight, discretion, and portability of the set.

Sheet Type

When choosing the ideal knife, you must take into account the use that will be given. It is not the same to cut rope than fatigue wire, for different purposes we have different sheets. Basically, we differentiate between smooth and sawn edge, although it is common to find models that incorporate a mixed edge.

Handle

Many people only look at the blade when the end (handle) is equally important. It must be ergonomic, non-slip and durable. Always check the opinions of other buyers, as some models suffer breaks with falls at low altitude, and of course, that is not something we want in a tactical knife.

A tactical knife will normally have a smooth and sawn mixed blade, a clip mechanism that allows it to be carried without a cover and a quick opening system that allows it to be opened with one hand. As is evident, the locking mechanism must be safe and facilitate one-handed operation.

FAQs on Tactical Knives

When defining something as "tactical", it is generally implied that the item is suitable and designed for a combat sutuation, which also implies that the item is ultimately reliable and can be depended upon to function properly at all times.

With that in mind, not all Benchmade knives should be considered as tactical" weapons. However, Benchmade knives are of the highest quality, very well made, and can be depended upon to perform according to design intentions.

I am not any sort of expert on fighting with knives, and my answer is opinion only. Tactical is used to mean a weapon or tool for use by militart units in field manuvers. A tactical knife may be used for fighting, but it would not be ideally suited for such.

A fighting knife is designed for use to kill another human as far as I understand it. As such, the design would be less than ideal for most purposes a military unit would use a knife for. A tactical knife would potentially be used for cutting wire, stripping insulation from wire, hitting an enemy soldier on the head with the pommel to knock them out for capture and interrogation, and other uses.

When enlisting remember this word: Contraband Go to basic with two sets of disposable civilian clothes, plastic bags to store them in, a backpack or duffle to carry it all, a rugged wallet and a cheap cell phone. Pretty much everything else is contraband.

Do not even bring a butter knife it will be thrown away by you at reception. Choose a god to help you if you're dumb enough to hold onto it. You will be issued and told to buy at your training site.It wont be much.

After that its all about your command and what they allow you to have.

The term tactical is in my opinion grossly overused. Pretty much any object intended to be carried, for example, in a battlefield or law enforcement environment gets prefixed tactical. Tactical boots, tactical socks, tactical Y-fronts and many of these items have zero use as weapons.

They are instead intended to assist the user to gain advantage in whatever situation they find themselves in. A tactical knife therefore is intended as a tool for cutting things such as ropes or harnesses, clothing, shrubbery but not people.

A small folding knife that is easy to deploy and that can be conveniently carried has many uses but a weapon is not one of them. Other knives are used for that, they are called combat knives and look quite different.

Combat knives are often advertised as tactical knives but in my opinion this is wrong. We have a law which prohibits knives being sold as weapons hence in the UK you can buy survival knives, tactical knives even commando knives but not combat knives (or zombie killer knives since zombie killer also implies weapon) - visually there is no difference, it is all in the name.

It's not so much the knife that is in question, rather the manner in which it is carried. Culinary professionals carry their knives in bags or knife rolls, not their pockets. Carrying the knives in bags is perfectly legal. Thousands of people in New York work in restaurants and they need knives to make a living.

The city knows this and makes concessions for them to do so. If you are carrying a chef's knife in a knife roll while going to or from work in NYC the cops aren't going to hassle you. If you have it sticking out of your pocket, or something, then they probably will.

It's not what you're carrying, it's how you're carrying it that really matters.
