Great Knife/Small Price!

This little knife is well built. It is quite solid with a thick blade. I doubt you could get a real fine edge on such a thick blade. But, this knife is better suited for a stabbing defense, rather than trying to slash your way through a mountain of flesh. Every knife fighting expert agrees that stabbing is a lot more effective for killing an enemy than slashing. While it's balanced well for throwing, that should only be used as a recreational sport or as a last ditch attempt to get away. If you throw your knife, even if it sticks (which it probably won't given unknown distances)it won't kill your attacker instantly like in the movies. Knives kill by blood loss and it takes a while to bleed out. In the mean time, he has your knife and you're now unarmed. They show the sheath on a belt, but that's a mistake by someone who doesn't know about this knife. IT accepts a one inch wide strap (belt) and would be better secured upright on a strap of your web gear, instead of sideways behind you. Overall this is a good knife for what it was made for and you can't beat the Bogo two for one, especially if you wait for the 30% off deal. That's better than free shipping.

Undercover Tanto

This is a great knife and a great value being as it's BOGO. Didn't come razor sharp (but hey, that's what sharpeners are for) but does have a pointing tip. It also conceals very well. My only complaint is that the belt loops are kind of small. All in all, very satisfied with this purchase!!!

nice knife, solid feel to it. only drawback is that it will only fit on a small 1 inch dress belt. if you wear a wider belt, it will not fit.

This is an excellent self defense weapon. Carry it with confidence. It WILL NOT let you down. At 6.99 and free shipping, you won't find a better tool for the price anywhere. Thanks BUDK! PS. Shipping time and customer service is always outstanding.

Great Concealed Knife

This knife did need a little sharpening out of the box, but let's face it: if you like knives and are too lazy to sharpen your own knives then you need to go collect tea cozies. The elastic loops on the sheath are very small, but will work with many belts and the knife itself can be concealed pretty well if needed.

Way smaller than expected, but the handle is still big enough to grip easily. The blade itself probably won't do much, but the point at the tip, it didn't take much force to penetrate my bed. Also, it's not a good thing to run with, I was running outside and it fell down and I didn't even notice. When I found it again, the tip was dug into the dirt. Other than that, it is a great dagger.

This is a very nice knife for the money. As others have stated it does not come very sharp and perhaps some paracord around the handle would be a nice to have extra. However these are all DIY fixes if these are important to you, but this should not take away from the knife itself. If you want a small full tang tactical knife take a look at this one.

Knife Knowledge

For those of you who expect EVERY knife to have a cutting edge, don't buy this, in fact don't buy knives. That said, as an avid knife collector I have to say that this is a very impressive piece. The design is flawless for penetrating power, right down to the dorsal bevels on the back of the blade. I have put this knife through ply-wood, a car door, and a 3/16" Kevlar plate; all by hand. It is balanced well enough to throw, and has just enough weight that if it doesn't stick it will crack a bone, (I've hit the handle against, and broken, concrete.) Taking all factors into account, this has got to be one of the most functional, brutal, stabbing knives I've ever had.

Serves one purpose: A quick reaction, last resort, self defense tool. I would've liked to think the blade on it would be useful in an emergency setting... However, this thing is all pointy and the blade will need to be sharpened on your own. So, if you're looking for a self defense tool - this little guy can help your mind stay at ease while walking in the shadows at night... Might save your wallet or even your life one night.

I'm also really glad to know that TS addressed the belt size concern. This guy fits 1 3/8 inch belts at the max. All my 1.5 inchers wouldn't do. Had to order a 1.25 inch belt so that the sheath would fit in it's concealed state. I talked to an excellent TS customer service representative and they updated the listing to state the belt size max. Thanks TS!
