Smith & Wesson SWAT

The Smith & Wesson S.W.A.T. is a small, versatile assisted knife built with the modern police officer in mind. However, its long-lasting blade and compact nature make it a great choice for general use.

Blade Length: 3.2 in (8 cm)
Closed Length: 4 in (10.2 cm)
Open Overall Length: 7 in (18 cm)

The S.W.A.T. is a locking liner pocketknife with a closed length of 4 inches, blade length of 3.2 inches, and a full length of 7 inches. Smith & Wesson offers it in black, including the blade, or satin, which is a natural metal finish. The blade is available straight or combo, which includes a serrated section. The knife is compact enough to carry in a boot, pocket, or vest, and the edge is extremely durable, so it doesn’t require frequent sharpening.

It’s clear from the many customer reviews available online that the S.W.A.T. knife is a hit with police and military alike, but it has also found success with hunters, tradesmen, and even DIYers. Some police have commented that they prefer this knife to others because they can wear it in their boot for an entire 12-hour shift without discomfort. Positive non-police reviews tend to focus on the two rubber grips, which offer a grip that is unusual for a knife this small.

The only consistent complaint regarding the Smith & Wesson S.W.A.T. assisted knife concerned those with the black finish, which tends to wear. The satin finish, on the other hand, can’t wear, so one may want to choose that version if they opt for this knife. The common positive thread among all reviews is the knifeā€™s blade and its ability to hold an edge. That factor and the overall durability of this compact knife make it one worth buying.
