New 5.11 Tactical Double Duty Folding Knives

New 5.11 Tactical Folding Rescue Knives

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 bladeĀ 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

New 5.11 Side Kick Rescue Tool Neck Knife

New 5.11 Side Kick Cop Tool Rescue Knife
New Cop Tool Neck Knife from 5.11!

The almost organic shape of the 5.11 Side Kick means that it fits in your hand like it belongs there. The shape is very similar to the popular cop tool by Boker, featuring a chisel shaped tip at a right angle to the primary edge for scraping, levering, and chiseling. It also features a seat belt cutter, an oxygen key, and a half serrated primary edge, making it ready for any task. The finger hole allows for a better grip, which makes it extremely easy to get out of the sheath in a hurry, despite the strong hold of the sheath itself. It also allows for better control of the blade, putting the hand further forward without any risk of the hand slipping onto the sharp edge. This is especially important in emergency situations, where the slightest increase in control can be the difference between cutting a seat belt, and cutting into the person beneath the seat belt.

This is the perfect tool for emergency responders to have on hand, and a great tool in general for any knife lover.
