Tactical Knives Magazine Gives COAST Rapid Response Knives a Review

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

COAST Products' Rapid Response 3.9-inch bladeIn the September 2012 issue of Tactical Knives magazine, Steven Dick reviews COAST’s Rapid Response Knives. Dick starts the review by giving a brief history of COAST (the same company that offers a multi-tool for every occasion, as well as the always-handy LED flashlight and LED headlamp) and states, “…it takes something special to impress me, but COAST has managed.”

In the article, Dick discusses the Blade Assist Technology (and Max-Lock blade locking system that knife maker Ron Lake integrated into our line of tactical knives. The reviewer has a bias toward larger every-day carry knives because of his larger hands, but he favored the Rapid Response 3.9-inch blade in his field tests. Incidentally, he found that even the knife with the 3-inch blade comfortably fit his hand. Elements of the 3.9-inch tactical knife that Dick appreciated include the texture of the checkered nylon on the handle; ambidextrous thumb studs; a reversible steel carry clip; and other features that both right- and left-handers will find helpful. In addition to tactical uses, the author suggests using the knife for cleaning fish, gardening, home improvement projects and self-defense.
