The Tac Force line is used by EMT, Fire crew, Rescue crew and first responders. In addition to the use in emergency situations the Tac Force line also includes offerings of interest to hunters and collectors. The Tac Force line also has knives designed for the fantasy genre. The common characteristic of all knives in the Tac Force product line is the Spring Assist feature.
The blade has a partially serrate drop point design with a thumb slot for easy manageability. The blade can withstand the abuse that comes with use on tough jobs and will hold its edge well. The blade is designed to be able to cut through thickets, cut meat and prepare kindling. The blade has a spring assisted opening mechanism. There are reports that the blade can develop rust. The rust can be removed by sharpening the blade. The half serration will keep the blade usable should the regular half of the blade become dulled wild out in the wilds. The blade is made out of the same firm steel as the Kershaw 1660 Ken Onion Leek Folding Knife.
The handle is made from aluminium and has a great grip in all weather conditions as well as when you are working with sweaty hands. The handle is contoured for comfort as well as exceptional durability and has a drilled hole design. The soft smooth finish on the handle provides a great feel when holding the knife. Depending on the color style you select, you can have Police, Fire or Rescue stamped on the handle. Not all styles have stamping. The stamping does not indicate anything special about the particular style other than ornamentation. It is important if you are a member of the Police, Fire or Rescue units where you would probably want it to match your specific line of endeavor.
The Locking Mechanism
The Tac Force Linerlock is a normal liner locking mechanism. It securely keeps the blade from closing until you want it to. To close the blade, simply push the liner lock to one side and push the blade back into the handle. It closing mechanism is very similar to the Spyderco Civilian.
Our verdict on the Tac Force TF-705
It is going to be hard to find a better knife under $10. It is almost impossible to find a knife at this price that has a blade that is this strong and will hold its edge for so long. The Tac Force TF-405 series proves its value by being carried by police, fire, rescue and first responders. The choice of colors is incredible, from basic black to camo pink to rainbow blades. This knife is perfect for camping and hiking, but we do recommend the Benchmade Griptilian knife over this pocket knife.
