Japanese tactical knives have become more popular over the years, and for a good reason. These knives are designed to meet specific needs that regular knives simply cannot.
Folding or Fixed?
Tactical knives come in both folding and fixed varieties. Both have their advantages, primarily relating to how the blade is stored and deployed. A folding knife can be concealed easily in a pocket and doesn’t require any other accessories. On the other hand, a fixed blade knife will require a sheath for carrying purposes.
To be a tactical knife, a folding model must have a blade lock to hold the blade in place during use and to prevent the knife from closing. A quality folding knife will have a reliable locking mechanism, but some people just feel more confident with a fixed blade.
A big difference between regular and tactical knives is the blade. Thinner blades won’t stand up to the punishment that tactical blades endure. The technical variety will use thicker blades that are partially serrated, allowing them to be used dig at objects and even saw through rope.
Japanese tactical knives are made of Japanese AUS8 steel, so they will hold an edge well and are resistant to rust and corrosion. At Off-Grid Knives, we upgrade our Japanese AUS8 blades with cryogenic treatments that improve their strength and durability. The combination of AUS8 steel and the freezing produces a quality knife at a great price.
