For people like me who are unkind to their things, a low-cost, highly featured knife makes sense. I can beat it up all I want and not cry that it got a scratch. Using quality materials, styling, and innovation, Strike Industries has introduced just that. Made specifically for everyday carry, this is the new K1 Knife from Strike.

Strike Industries news @ TFB:

The Strike K1 Knife is an everyday knife made for everyday use. The thumb hole in the blade makes it easy to open one-handed. Two (x2) Jimping areas on the back of the blade to provide additional grip and control for different grip styles. This ambidextrous knife features a reversible pocket clip for your preferred hand which orientates the knife at a tip-up position in your pocket.

The NEW Strike Industries K1 Knife

The K1 features a 3.51-inch, AUS-8 stainless steel, hollow ground blade. The grip is available in either black or translucent smoke and is made of high-strength impact-resistant custom-blended SI Polymer Extreme material. The blade uses a thumb hole for one-handed opening. The pocket clip is reversible and the knife is carried tip-up. A more unique feature of the K1 is the bladeless tape cutter. The back of the knife has a fin built-in that can cut through most packing tape without ever having to open your knife.


  • Blade length: 3.51″
  • Overall length: 8.22″
  • Closed length: 4.72″
  • Weight: 2.9 oz

    My drawer of junk knives is too full to add another one.

    Great knife for a grocery store stock person.
    As a useable every day carry?
    Not so much.
    Handle looks very uncomfortable for hard use and blade shape is, well, mostly good for breaking down cardboard boxes.
    One and a half stars. Mostly because of price.
