Description

Scratch and Dent knives are a selection of TacKnives knives that are fully functioning, safe to use knives that did not meet our visual quality standards and discounted. Scratch and Dent knives are still under the full protection of TacKnives warranty.

TacKnives MD3T OTF is a MEDIUM fully automatic double action OTF (Out The Front) knife that comes standard with CNC aviation Zinc Alloy handles. The 100% CNC Construction of the handle makes for a precise fit of the handle and the blade. The 100% CNC Construction is not only for the exterior, it is also the interior and the operating components as well. The CNC aviation Zinc Alloy is extremely strong, lightweight and durable.

All TacKnives knives are designed with EDC (Everyday Carry) in mind. Therefore, ergonomics are everything. The MD3T handle shape is well balanced and feels natural in the hand of the operator. The handle is coated with Anti-Slip industrial silicon for the ultimate grip to keep the knife firmly in the hand of the operator during any operations. Additionally, both sides of the handle is CNC machined hollowed out and replaced with carbon fiber to reduce the weight of the knife.

The blade of the MS3T is a straight Tanto style blade. This style was popularized and countlessly tested by the military community. The Tanto Serrated style is versatile to handle all kinds of cutting requirements.

Inside the MD3T OTF knife, you will find our new dual spring technology where it gives the MD3T its consistent firing and super rapid deployment. The trigger is designed to be on the main face of the knife where your thumb naturally rest for quick deployment. The trigger action is both crisp and smooth.

Since every TacKnives knives are designed with EDC in mind, you will find almost all TacKnives knives are equipped with a ballistic glass breaker and a stainless steel pocket clip. Both features are extremely essential in an EDC knife. In the case of an emergency, an operator has quick access to his or her knife through accessing it from his or her pocket and rapid deployment of the blade. The glass breaker can easily break a common window.

All TacKnives OTF knives are extremely safe to operate and use. TacKnives OTF knives come with a built-in safety that will not allow the blade to fully deploy if anything is obstructing its path. Once in “safety mode” the blade will need to be reset by pulling the blade all the way into its locking position making it fully functional again.

Bought this knife as a dent/scratch, and am having a difficult time finding what the imperfection is. The knife is heavy. I have other OTF knives that way a lot less. I prefer the weight of this to a lighter one. I’ve been carrying this everyday and have been overall pleased. The action is crisp and predictable. The only negative is that the knife wasn’t as sharp as I’d like, but I keep my knives extremely sharp. Overall great value and would recommend.

    I have always been curious about “switchblades” and wanted to try one. When I saw this at a reasonable price “scratch and dent” sale, I double checked the laws in my area, then picked it up.

    First, this company’s quality control standards must be really strict, because I can’t see anything that explains why this was a “scratch and dent” item. No scratches, no dents, a couple TINY imperfections along the seam on one side and a TINY “bubble” on the pocket clip, but nothing that would have made me send this back even if I’d paid considerably more for the knife.

    The knife itself is hefty, and the switch is very stiff, but I think that’s what you want with this kind of knife—there is virtually NO chance this is going to accidentally deploy in your pocket. It takes significant pressure, and if you’re thinking of getting this to fidget with, I’ll say that even my “off” hand, which has no tendon issues, gets tired quickly pushing the switch back and forth. The handle is smooth, but still plenty grippy, and the ergonomics are quite comfortable for my hand. It’s also solid enough that I feel confident that the window breaker would work very well if you needed it.

    I don’t have calipers, but just eyeballing it I’d say the blade is at least half again as thick as the blade on my Kershaw Leek, and a bit thicker than my Civivi Cogent. There’s a little play both sideways and front to back, but based on what I read and see on YouTube reviews, that’s not unusual with these kinds of knives—and it’s not so significant that I feel like the blade might break free under stress. One of the first things I did was test the safety by deploying the knife against a piece of cardboard several times. It definitely works. If you accidentally deployed this against skin there’d be a little nick where the point hits, but it shouldn’t do any serious damage (I still strongly discourage testing that theory!). And it’s a simple matter to pull the blade all the way out, which re-engages it so you can use the switch again.

    The blade’s edge isn’t very sharp. I don’t know much about this kind of knife, so this may be intentional. Given the overall quality of this knife I have to think it probably is. Anyway, if you poke it into a piece of cardboard and pull, it’ll cut/tear its way through, but it’s not at all slicey. The steel looks and feels very dense, so it might take some effort to sharpen this, but if you do so, the edge retention should be good.

    On the whole I’m glad I bought this—it was enough to satisfy my curiosity at a reasonable price. I wouldn’t personally make this my EDC—I carry a knife as a tool rather than a weapon, and I’d hate to give someone a heart attack by popping out a switchblade to open a package or cut down a box. But it’s interesting to hold and while I can’t fidget with it for any length of time, there is kind of a fun factor with handling it. It’s pretty much exactly what I wanted—a well-made, entry-level OTF knife for someone who is simply curious about such things. Without knowing enough for real comparison, I’d still say this is a pretty decent OTF for someone who wants one and has a tighter budget.
