Knives are quite the interesting tool. And with so many different types, you can rest assured there will always be a knife for every occasion. If the occasion happens to be Thanksgiving, and you find yourself faced with a monstrous turkey that needs slicing, reach for none other than a carving knife. Later on in the evening, you might come face to face with a fresh-baked dinner roll that needs a bit of buttering. Luckily, you have got your trusty butter knife just to your right – unless your table is not set properly.
If, however, the occasion is a little less family friendly, and you find yourself in a physical jam, you better hope you have got something with a bit more of an edge – something like a boot knife. Designed to be concealed within a boot, these small fixed-blade knives are also known as gambler's knives and can be quite the equalizer in a sticky situation. And if you happen to be in the market for a new boot knife, might we suggest the new Smith & Wesson H.R.T. boot knife?
The Smith & Wesson H.R.T. boot knife is, like most boot knives, a small fixed-blade knife. It features a single edge and comes with a leather sheath that includes a clip, making concealment within a boot very simple.
The Smith & Wesson H.R.T. boot knife is now available from Keepshooting.com for $24.95.
Smith & Wesson H.R.T. Boot Knife
The Smith & Wesson story is an interesting one for sure. It started when Horace Smith and Daniel B. Wesson's first foray in 1852 saw the manufacture of a lever-action pistol known as the Volcanic pistol for their Volcanic Repeating Arms Company. Four years later, after financial difficulties led the company to come under different ownership, the pair left to begin anew and started work immediately on a newly designed revolver known as the Smith & Wesson Model 1. The rest is history. Now, over 150 years later, Smith & Wesson is still going strong and shows no signs of slowing down. With that kind of experience, it is not surprising that the company is now at the forefront of the arms industry – responsible for providing high performance firearms to the military, law enforcement and civilian markets.
But unbeknownst to many, Smith & Wesson also has its hands in a number of other markets, including firearm accessories and law enforcement products. The company even licenses the brand for a range of high-quality cutting tools like the new Smith & Wesson H.R.T. boot knife.
The Smith & Wesson H.R.T. boot knife features a small fixed-blade that measures approximately 4 1/2 inches and is constructed from 440C stainless steel – the strongest of the four grades of 440 stainless steel. Knives constructed using 440 stainless steel, which is a grade of steel known for its high levels of carbon, are typically lauded for their fantastic edge retention. Adding to the allure of the blade is the presence of a Teflon® coating to aid in the resistance of rust, corrosion and other wear. As noted, the blade features a single edge and includes an etching of the Smith & Wesson H.R.T. logo. The handle is constructed from solid aluminum cast metal and also features a non-slip ring grip made from a synthetic rubberized material. Each handle also includes a lanyard loop. The overall length of the knife is approximately 8 1/2 inches.
