LARGE OTF KNIVES – Size
A large OTF ranges from 9 to 11 inches when fully opened, and weighs anywhere between 8 to 15 ounces. However, there are always exceptions to that rule, and we’ll get into that. Now that we’ve run through the basics, let’s get to the fun stuff. We’ll cover some of the large OTFs we offer, and our reviews from satisfied customers.
Some of Our Favorite Large OTF Knives
The Brass Knuckle MTU6
A fan-favorite among the large OTF knives, is the five-star customer rated Brass Knuckle MTU6. The MTU6 is a one of a kind product that combines a brass knuckle and OTF knife. The body of the knife is made with aircraft grade aluminum which is extremely strong and light. Here’s what one of our customers had to say about it:
“I spent a lot of time online looking for knuckle knives. I finally chose TacKnives MTU6. Shopping online for something like this is difficult, while looking for quality and weight, you just can’t tell by looking at a picture. Well. I’m here to tell you, this knife is both! The [knife] is smooth operating like the video they have. Nice and weighty.! This sucker will pack a punch! Smooth OTF blade, both in and out! Fits my hand perfectly. I’m 6’3″ and was hoping this knife would not be too small for my hand. Shipped fast. Totally satisfied.” – T. Wilson
Weighing in at 15.1 ounces and 9.37 inches long, the MTU6 fits right into the large OTF family. The MTU6 is one mean-looking knife. It’s also a knife that someone who stands 6’3” in stature, like our customer T. Wilson, feels comfortable using. The MTU6 finds itself in a unique position, as it is far different from the STLBW1.
The STLBW1 is also a part of the large OTF family, stretching out to 11 inches long and weighing 8.4 ounces. Being rated at five stars, the STLBW1 is not only beautiful to look at, but according to Dennis, it isn’t difficult to use either:
“Great knife. Most importantly, these old arthritic hands can open and close it.” -Dennis
The TacKnives Italian Stiletto OTF series STLBW1 offers a distinctive switchblade and OTF all in one. The STLBW1 mimics the popular and iconic Italian Stiletto looks. The blade shoots out at the switch at the bottom and will retract in the same manner, allowing for easy and comfortable use.
If you are new to the OTF knife game, we suggest trying out the MTU11B. As you should expect, another customer rated it as a five-star knife. However, this knife is different from normal large OTFs because this bad boy only weighs 4.2 ounces, regardless of it being slighting over 10 inches in length. The 100% CNC construction of the handle makes for a precise fit of the handle and the blade. Our customer, T.W., had only good things to say about it.
“This Knife is a keeper, I have other OTF knives and this one locks up better than one I got for $425.00, holds a[n] edge very well with the D2 steel, I have a new one ordered of a different style. (Brass Knuckle) and can’t wait to get it in my hands. Truly great knives, keep them coming, I’m telling everyone that I know that’s into knives.” -T.W. Legg
The MTU11B is an automatic double-action large OTF knife that is part of our Distinctive Collection. It comes standard with CNC aviation grade zinc alloy handles.
All TacKnives knives are made with exceptional materials and tested for strength and durability. When carrying out field testing, we had some fun testing out the MT2DES. Imagine it for yourself, we headed out to the woods with a MT2DES and threw it against some trees, we cut venison steak with it, and we also dropped it from a tree, blade pointed down. The MT2DES took it all in its stride. Anything to take it to its limit, which is also why the MT2DES has a five-star customer review rating.
“The is my first time purchasing from TacKnives and I am very impressed. I ordered the MT2DES OTR knife and it is very well made. I like the weight it has to it. Makes it feel very premium. The deployment of the knife is pretty hard and I like that about it. The grip has a rubber-like feel to it. Which makes me think that it would do great under wet circumstances. I definitely like the sheath it comes with. I’m for sure thinking of getting another knife soon. Keep up the great work.” J.M.
This TacKnives OTF knife is longer than the usual OTF Knife. The blade measures at 4 inches and the body measures at 6 inches, including the window breaker. The knife body has a triangle pattern for grip and style. The body of the knife has a thin rubber spray for grip.
