The 5.11 Tactical XPRT Is Big On Features, And The Price Is Right
The firm 5.11 Tactical, a leader in the law enforcement apparel industry for over three decades, began adding knives to their growing line of gear and accessories two years ago. To get their feet wet, the company turned to another industry insider, Blade-Tech, to design and supply their first line of tactical knives. Spearheaded by Blade-Tech veteran Mike Vellecamp, who also represents Fox Knives USA, 5.11’s first offerings were well received and their second round of designs appear equally exciting.
The new 5.11 XPRT model, designed by Vellecamp for Fox Knives USA, is a large-size tactical folder with more curves than a bag of Ramen noodles and all the right stuff to put it at the head of the class. This knife features a slick 3.75″ re-curved clip-point blade made of top-shelf Crucible Industries CPM S30V stainless blade steel and rolls out on dual, ambidextrous thumb studs; a welcome sight for southpaws who are often overlooked in the tactical-folder arena. The blade, flat ground to keep a durable edge, has a black oxide coating for low reflectivity and added corrosion resistance. On the backside of the blade a notched thumb ramp has been added for enhanced purchase.
