GB1405: Kiowa
Even a quick glance out of the corner of your eye will convince you that this is no ordinary tactical knife. You can tell by the dramatic, take-no-prisoners profile that the Kiowa—yes, it's named after that attack helicopter—is a knife to be reckoned with. Owing to its 3" tanto blade in matte black is the gnarly serrated section for sawing and its handy lanyard hole for easy attachment.

The handle is aggressively sculpted of glass filled nylon, with skateboard tape inserts for extra control in tough scenarios. Finger positions are ideally configured for ergonomic efficiency and comfort in multiple defensive postures.

As hard-charging folders go, a guy can do a whole lot worse than the pocket clip Kiowa. Question is, why the devil would you accept less?

Pros: Overall Quality, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Pocket Clip, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
A really good knife IMO
I've used this knife for everyday use, and it lasted for me about two years now, The pocket clip is pretty strong and I can place/clip it into my pocket with ease, but I did encounter a problem where the clip actually bent outward, but was easily fixed using pliers and bent it straight back down. I can't say anything about camping/survival qualities since I've used it mostly for opening boxes and cutting things like strings or ropes. However, I did use it once to shave a make-shift walking stick while hiking and the knife retained it's sharpness pretty well. Blade is sharp, however, the best thing I like about it is that the serrations doesn't take up half of the blade, serrations are nice and can help cut things easier, but hard to sharpen, so I really like how the blade has a good small length of serrations to use. The handle on the blade feels comfortable as well, and the ease of opening the knife goes really smooth as well, so overall I really like this knife a lot and can recommend it.
