First Tactical Viper Knife

First Tactical Viper Knife

We've covered the First Tactical Diamondback previously here at Shooting Illustrated, and the Viper is another folding tactical knife in the same product line. While the Diamondback is larger and features a tanto-style blade, the Viper is more "pocket-friendly" and has a spear-point blade.

Single-hand opening is easily achieved thanks to the unique "thumb bridge" mechanism that allows quick release of the blade using either hand. The beefy pocket clip is reversible for left- or right-handed users and the liner lock us oversize for easy manipulation. At 4.2 ounces, the Viper is lighter than the Diamondback, and with a 2.5-inch blade, certainly more friendly to less-permissive environments for pocket-carry.

Whether you're looking for an EDC folding knife, a sturdy companion for opening letters and boxes or simply a rugged knife that won't set you back much, the Viper is worth investigation.

MSRP: $29.99.
