This week, we’re shining a spotlight on a great purveyor of American-made fixed blades – Blackjack Knives. From the premium materials to the high-quality craftsmanship to the traditional styling, these are true powerhouse knives with style. Good news – we’ve curated a special collection of these knives and taken up to 55% off as an early Black Friday treat!
These classic knives offer stellar performance and are handcrafted in the Randall Knife tradition. Let’s take a look at the entire sale collection so you can get an idea of which one will best fit your lifestyle.
Let’s start with the Model 127 series. Handmade in the USA, these knives feature upswept blades that are perfect for hunting, skinning, and camping. The tough A2 steel is convex ground for an excellent combination of strength and cutting efficiency, and the long swedge increases the agility of the knife when cutting through soft materials like food or wild game.
The Model 127 knives offer different handle options, but of the entire collection we have on sale, this antique ivory Micarta version may be our overall favorite.
Each of these knives comes with a deluxe brown leather sheath, complete with a snap loop for retention. The handles completely envelop the full tang of the blade, which eliminates hot spots. The half guard keeps your fingers from sliding forward onto the blade, and the ricasso offers space for your index finger so you can choke up on the knife for fine detail work.
Next up, the Classic Jet Pilot Survival Series. Instead of the upswept profile seen on the Model 127, these knives opt for drop point blades. The Sambar stag handles on these close-out models are truly gorgeous, especially with the addition of stacked leather. The subtle groove of the handle fills your hand quite nicely when you grip it.
The handles on Blackjack’s Model 3 knives are tapered toward the front, but quite similar to the Model 127s we looked at earlier. This line boasts bowie blades, though, for the ultimate in utility and hunting performance. While the overall build is certainly traditional, there is a modern touch – the pommels feature lanyard holes for easy carry.
The Model 7 lineup really ups the ante in regards to the materials – the discounted knives we’re featuring sport CPM-3V blades, so you’re getting a definite steel upgrade paired with a Vietnam combat bowie-style profile. Of the two Model 7 variants we have on sale, we’re definitely drawn to this black Micarta variation. The coloring paired with the aggressive upswept blade shape gives it an edgy look.
While we’re huge fans of Blackjack’s traditionally-styled fixed blades, the Mamba II’s tactical design is a complete departure – and we’re still pretty enamored. From the A2 tool steel to the snakeskin-textured rubber scales to the MOLLE compatible sheath, the Mamba II is a truly fearsome knife with a monster blade. We’re talking 9.5” of steel, complete with recurve and convex blade grind.
There you have it – 12 amazing knives, one super enticing pre-Black Friday sale.
