Introducing COAST’s Light Knife, the LK375

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

With a 95 year history of making high quality knives and a 25 year history in high performance LED light technology, it only makes sense that the team at COAST would combine their two core product groups in to one technologically advancedLK375product, the LK375. The light knife is made up of a 110 lumen flashlight that includes a COAST signature beam and a very tough, rugged, folding liner lock knife. This gives you two superior, professional products in one.

“I’ve been following knife trends in the world markets for over 35 years and knew there was nothing being offered except very “low-output” LED’s that were incorporated into the frame of folding and fixed blade knives.
