Knives for fighting, generally referred to as “fighters,” commonly have a fixed blade between seven and ten inches long.

If you are searching for a compact knife for fighting purposes, we offer a lot to choose from here at OffGrid.

Characteristics of a Good Fighting Knife

Knives for fighting, generally referred to as “fighters,” commonly have a fixed blade between seven and ten inches long.

These knives often taper to add lightness and speed. Many fighting knives have very sharp points. They are ergonomically designed at the handle to accommodate several different grips.

Top Fighting Knives

There are many good fighting knives. Here is a cross-section of quality blades:

1. Rhino Blackout Knife

The blade shape resembles the mighty rhino horn, the Rhino blade has a large and very versatile blade shape.


The D2 Rhino blade rides on high quality ceramic ball bearings, very smooth effortless deployment and locks up like a vault. The ergonomic large handle and scales are made of G10, comfortable with gloves or without.

SHOP THE STORY
Action on the Rhino is smooth, fit and finish is great. Perfect knife for someone who wants a fixed blade size knife but a folder.

2. Viper Blackout EDC Knife

The Viper is built for hard-use in all conditions, we used Böhler K110 blade steel (HRC 59) which has incredible edge retention that ensures a long run of cutting without the need to sharpen. K110 has incredible corrosion & wear resistance, the blade design is a tanto style with our signature OG cutouts on the spine.


The Viper has grippy G10 scales and a generously sized handle. We added our Grid-Lock switch, when your work calls for heavy duty action, flip the safety Grid-Lock, which locks the blade in the open position.

I have lots of knives from Benchmades to CRKTS, SOGs, Kershaw, Gerber, and this knife rivals them all.

3. Scorpion Blackout

The Scorpion is made with Crucible Industries CPM S35VN super steel. S35VN is a top of the line high tech steel which is very tough, holds it's edge even after tons of hard use and has excellent wear and corrosion resistance.


The Scorpion blade rides on high quality ceramic ball bearings, as smooth of an opening as you'll find anywhere and locks up like a vault. The grippy handle is made with a non-reflective 6AL-4V titanium with carbon fiber inlays.

The Scorpion surpasses everything else in my collection.

4. Badger Blackout EDC Knife

The Badger is our version of a beefy compact utility flipper, built for hard-use in all conditions. With excellent heat treatment of our D2 blade steel, the Badger ensures a long run of tough cutting without the need to sharpen.


Comes razor sharp out of the box with a fat belly blade. When your work calls for hard-use, flip the safety Grid-Lock switch, engaging the Grid-Lock in the open position turns this liner lock flipper into a safe rough-use fixed blade.

SHOP THE STORY
The Badger"s action is smooth, the grip has a comfortable feel. The ability to lock the blade open, via Grid-Lock, is a nice feature. Nice deep pocket profile and the weight is just right for every day carry (EDC).

5. Black Mamba Knife 

The Mamba is designed with the highest quality and attention to detail as possible. The Mamba has a legal carry reverse tanto/wharney style blade made with Böhler M390 super steel.


The legal carry blade rides on high quality ceramic ball bearings, as smooth of an opening as you'll find anywhere. The handle is made with 6AL-4V grade 5 titanium, commonly used in high end custom knives.

The deployment is the smoothest I have ever experienced on any knife, period. You could easily mistake it for an "assisted"!
