Popular discount gear supplier LA Police Gear (LAPG) announced the company was jumping into the knife market with three new blades: one fixed and two folders.
This model is a fixed blade knife that uses 440B steel with a partially serrated blade. The blade is 5″ long with a black finish. LAPG states the knife has a partial tang with a spiked pommel. The handle is rubber.
LA Police Gear states the knife has a suggested retail of $59.99, but lists it at $39.99 on its website. A sheath is included with the knife.
Phantom Stainless Pocket Knife
This folder was designed by LAPG to be a daily carry knife. It has a 3″ blade that can be had with either a plain edge or partially serrated edge. The blade is made of 440C steel and can be purchased with a black finish or bead blasted finish.
The knife has both a thumb stud and flipper tap with spring assistance for opening. It uses a liner lock. The company shows a MSRP of $34.99, but sells it for $19.99.
TBFK S35VN EDC Folding Knife
Before I go any farther, yes, that is the actual name of the knife. It stands for “The Best F***ing Knife” S35VN Every Day Carry Folding Knife.”
As the name suggests, this folder uses S35VN steel for the blade which is only available with a fine edge. It is available in both black stonewash and satin finishes. This blade is 3 3/8″ long.
Like the Phantom, it has both thumb studs and a flipper tab for easy opening. The company uses a ball bearing opening system in this knife, which is supposed to offer both smoothness and speed. A liner lock keeps the blade open.
The handles are made of black G10. The pocket clip is not reversible and it is carried tip down.
LAPG lists the MSRP at $79.99, but sells it for $49.99.
