The Blade

Tac Force Knife ReviewThe blade has a partially serrated drop point design with a thumb slot for easy manageability. The blade can withstand the abuse that comes with use on tough jobs and will hold its edge well. The blade is designed to be able to cut through thickets, cut meat and prepare to kindle.

The blade has a spring-assisted opening mechanism. There are reports that the blade can develop rust. The rust can be removed by sharpening the blade. The half serration will keep the blade usable should the regular half of the blade become dulled wild out in the wilds. The blade is made out of the same firm steel as the Kershaw 1660 Ken Onion Leek Folding Knife.

The Handle

The soft smooth finish on the handle provides a great feel when holding the knife. Depending on the color style you select, you can have Police, Fire, or Rescue stamped on the handle. Not all styles have been stamped. The stamping does not indicate anything special about the particular style other than ornamentation. It is important if you are a member of the Police, Fire, or Rescue units where you would probably want it to match your specific line of endeavor.

The Locking Mechanism

To close the blade, simply push the liner lock to one side and push the blade back into the handle. Its closing mechanism is very similar to the Spyderco Civilian. Our verdict on the Tac Force TF-705

Pros & Cons

The built-in can opener comes in handy out in the wilderness. The glass breaker is handy to have, even if it is not something you would require very often. The spring-assisted design will not jam. The knife has a protracted tang with a lashing hole that makes this a great inexpensive survival knife. The dual lanyard slots on the handle offer you a choice of how to loop your line through the knife.
The blade stays sharp for a very long time thanks to the special heat tempering developed by Master Cutlery. If there is any downside to this knife, it is that the bottle opener can only be used when the knife is open. This can be dangerous after having opened a few bottles of adult beverages.

Final Verdict

t It is going to be hard to find a better knife under $10. It is almost impossible to find a knife at this price that has a blade that is this strong and will hold its edge for so long. The Tac Force TF-405 series proves its value by being carried by police, fire, rescue, and first responders.

The choice of colors is incredible, from basic black to camo pink to rainbow blades. This knife is perfect for camping and hiking, but we do recommend the Benchmade Griptilian knife over this pocket knife.
