Working in the warehouse

You can always go out and buy your run of the mill box opener blade, or you can choose a tool that is better suited for all over performance. Check out the TK PRO WASP.

We have already touched base on this, but we suggest the MTU19, MTU21, MTU22 & MTU23 otherwise known as our OTF Karambits. Check out the Blog post on Karambits here or the YouTube video here.

Electrician

We suggest the MD8T. With textured finger placement, the MD8T can provide precise performance for things like tape, boxes, tie wrap, stripping wire, notching wood and more.

Machinist

Daily tasks include cutting of cardboard, plastic packaging, strapping, rope, and string. You need a tool that can not only perform the job but perform it efficiently. In addition to that, you need a knife that can be operated with one hand. OTF knives allow the user to operate the knife with one hand.  A quality OTF knife is one of the most efficient tools you could have. Check out the TK PRO Stinger DP and the TK PRO Stinger T.

Mowing Lawns

However, the number one reason you need a knife if you’re mowing lawns all day is cutting string trimmer line. The constant abuse a knife takes to cut a string trimmer line daily means that whatever knife you’re using must not only be sharp but be able handle the abuse. MD3DPS is our choice for the job.

To poke holes in the DA’s case. Just kidding. However, you can get yourself a nice Italian stiletto to open your mail like the STXLBW1.
