5.11 Tactical's five new knives are comfortable, durable and well balanced. Each was engineered by renowned knife designer Mike Vellekamp of Blade-Tech and Fox Knives USA. 5.11's Alpha Scout Folder features easy-to-maintain AUS8 blade steel, a 3-inch flat-ground blade, 4mm blade thickness, comfortably-shaped 0.08-inch G10 scales, open liner lock construction for easy cleaning and 4-way ambidextrous clip options for greater convenience. Found on the Alpha Scout and Scout Folder, the Blade-Tech V-hole shape was intentionally designed for operators to grip your thumb during the opening motion.
These two knives and handles were specifically designed to be smaller and more compact, rather than taking larger models and simply scaling them down.
Made with AUS8 blade steel and a 3.5-inch flat-ground, 4mm thick blade for longer edge life, 5.11’s Scout Folder offers four-position clip carry, 0.08-inch G10 scales and a liner lock for easy one-hand operation. The Scout Folder fits easily in your hand or pocket, has smooth opening and closing action, and features an ergonomic design to prevent muscle fatigue during extended use.
