The UZI Special Forces Set includes a tactical pocket knife, compass, watch, and an LED flashlight. Overall, it’s a good deal and a handy emergency kit for anyone’s pockets.
The tanto-style pocket clip folder knife, only 4-1/4 inches when closed, wields a combo-serrated cutting edge of 8Cr14 high carbon stainless steel that flicks open with one hand and locks open with a very familiar and dependable liner lock mechanism. The skeletonized grip is light and secure in the hand, but does expose the inner workings of the knife to dust and grit. It will need cleaning frequently if that one-handed opening feature is expected to work well. The knife is still a good sturdy pocket blade, better for ordinary work than tactical uses but very handy to have around.
The watch isn’t fancy, but it’s waterproof to 300 feet. That means the quartz movement wristwatch with rotating and ratcheting bezel will definitely not be affected by rain, sweat, or river crossings. The stainless steel back holds up to the corrosive action of salt and oil in human sweat, always a plus in a watch. Divers might consider it marginal, but the outdoorsman should find this watch good enough. Attached to the wristband is a small plastic bubble compass which some would consider a toy — if this is the only compass available when you need one, it’s a durable and treasured piece of gear. When the GPS batteries go dead, you’ll be glad you have it.
The last piece in the set is a black LED flashlight, 4 inches long, which runs on only one AA battery and detaches from a lanyard and key ring. LED lights last for hours, provide brilliant light, and the machined aluminum case is even just barely big enough to be a decent fist load weapon.
