5.11 Tactical is a well known gear and clothing supplier for law enforcement, military, and fire/rescue professionals. What’s not as well known in the tactical community is their extensive tool, flashlight, and knife offerings. New for 2012, 5.11 Tactical has introduced the Double Duty series of folding knives which are great all around utility tools. The Karambit folder is a more tactical design with a 3-3/4″ black coated main blade and 1-1/2″ utility spike, perfect for punching holes. The Rescue folder has a carbide glass breaker, a 3-3/4″ sheepsfoot blade for safer cutting, and a 1-1/2″ serrated blade for fine detail work. The FRN handles are very ergonomic in the saber and reverse grips, and both blades on each knife lock into position so they won’t close on your fingers during hard use. The 5.11 Tactical Doubly Duty series may not be your typical knife designs but they sure will get the job done again and again. See them both at www.knifecenter.com.

5.11 Tactical® Pants with the trademarked tactical strap and slash pocket design were originally developed for rock climbing. “5.11” is a rock climbing difficulty level as listed in the Yosemite Decimal System. With skill levels ranging from 5.0 (easy) to 5.10 (difficult), 5.11 is even more grueling. 5.11 is officially defined as, “After thorough inspection, you conclude this move is obviously impossible; however, occasionally someone actually accomplishes it.”
