With the Tacticos Corto, Boker of Solingen, Germany, brings a tactical design into the world where the rest of us live. Many modern special ops blades have features that limit their use in the private sector, but this practical military model will fit the needs of civilians as well as soldiers.
Created for counter-terrorism units in Europe, a first glance at the Tacticos Corto might make you think it’s a folding clip knife. It has the ridged thumb grip on the blade back, the serrated combo edge, and the handle shape we’ve come to expect from that breed of knife. With this covert ops blade, Boker went back to a tried and true design, using full tang fixed blade construction. Want legal one-handed opening? This knife is always open, and vastly more convenient than the more complex answer to fast deployment. No mechanism to jam or break adds fundamental strength and reliability to this blade.
The grooved Micarta handle slabs give the user a non slip grip and complete stability in all climatic conditions. Finger grooves and guard shaped into the steel, and a lanyard hole for last chance retrieval make the use of the Tacticos Corto safe and secure even in wet conditions. The double edged tactical spear point shape is refined and efficient yet practical, good for hunters, campers, and hikers as well as anyone doing black ops business.
The fiberglass reinforced leather sheath includes a metal spring clip, so the Tacticos Corto will fit either belt, boot, or pocket.
