The RJ Tactical 3.0 knife is designed to handle any task, whether that's out in nature, on the job, or in the office. Thanks to its compact size, the 3-inch blade folds into a 4-inch handle, making it easy to carry from place to place.

The blade is made from quality 8Cr13MoV steel, which has been heat-treated to bring out its high-performance characteristics. This means it can take and hold an edge, and is both strong and durable. The handle is made from glass-filled nylon, which gives it a comfortable grip while also being incredibly tough. The matte look and finger contours add to the overall design and usability of the knife.

The heavy back jimping adds extra security to the grip while the SpeedSafe assisted opening and built-in flipper makes it easy to open one-handed. The RJ Tactical 3.0 also features a locking liner, which keeps the blade securely open during use, and a reversible pocket clip for left- or right-handed carry.

Customer Reviews

Based on 4 reviews
not what I expected

All I did was open the box, take this blade out of the wrapper, opened it once then but it all back together and sent it back to Knife Depot. Not what I expected. The 2 stars is me. Others might think it is a 5. God bless them all.

Albert Dvorsky
Assisted blade does not work

Never had a chance to use the knife, the blade sprung out once and is now loose in the casing. It would probably be more of a hassle and time to return, ship back

So sorry to hear about the issue, Albert. We sent you an email to resolve the issue.

Philip J Hendrickson
Nice knife

A very nice quick opening, solid grip and adequate grip, very nice.

Jeff Cameron
The little knife that could

Great knife. Usual Kershaw quality. It's my daily pocket knife so reliability is paramount. Worth ever dime. I had another for three years until I lost it. I'm sure I would have gotten an easy ten years out of it. This one I'm putting a gps on :-)
