Smith & Wesson's acquisition of Taylor Brands, LLC, brought about an extensive lineup of everyday carry knives bearing the Smith & Wesson name. One such blade is the Smith & Wesson Border Guard, a folding knife featuring a liner lock.

The knife features a partially serrated Tanto-style blade with a total blade length of 3.49 inches and an overall length of 8.25 inches. Total weight of the knife is 5.92 ounces. The blade itself is made from high-carbon stainless steel and features a stone-washed finish that gives the knife an aged look.

The handle features a similar stone-washed finish, but a G10 laminate insert along the sides of the handle give users a bit more gripping surface. To open the knife, users can employ the thumb studs tucked along the top of the blade, near the pivot point. Studs are included on either side, making opening possible for both hands. In addition, the blade features an index flipper, allowing users to open the knife with a simple push on the bottom of the handle.

The Border Guard also features a number of extra features not normally found on an EDC knife. The rear of the handle features a pointed steel protrusion that serves as a glass-breaker, in case a user needs to exit a vehicle. To that end, the end of the handle also features a strap-cutter, allowing users to cut themselves from a seatbelt, if needed.

The suggested retail price for the Smith & Wesson Border Guard knife is $26.66.
