Black Label Decoded-Assisted Open

NEW for 2018 — Spring assisted open folding knife with liner lock, modified tanto hollow ground stainless steel blade, textured G-10 scales, thumb stud and pocket clip.

A great problem solver. Even if the most "tactical" task of your day is opening a cardboard box, the Black Label Decoded will make the task a breeze. The assisted open design allows you to easily deploy the knife one-handed and will lock open as solidly as a good fixed blade knife.

What is a tactical knife? Contrary to what you may have seen in most 1980's action flicks, a tactical knife isn't an 18-inch-long monstrosity that you strap to a webbed vest for that moment when the main hero needs to start chopping limbs off of bad guys. A tactical knife is a tool that can be used to cut rope, quickly open a combat ration, remove flex cuffs, be used as a light pry tool, etc. The best tactical knives have a high utility to size/weight ratio, meaning they have sufficient size and durability to perform light to medium tasks, but are sufficiently compact and lightweight so as to not be an "anchor".  In a pinch, your knife will serve as a last-ditch defensive tool to protect yourself when you have no other options.

Having a good knife is a critical part of good tactics. In the real world, there is no substitute for good planning, proper preparation, situational awareness, action instead of reaction and having the right tools readily at hand. That's why we created Black Label Tactical Blades — cutting-edge tools to accomplish the mission.
