GLOCK Field Knife: Opinions?

Postby GeneticsDave » Sun 18 Oct 2009 12:05 am

I was wondering what you knife aficionados think about the GLOCK Field Knives? Please share any reasons why you like/dislike them and if you think they would be a good knife for a BOB (bug out bag) - or if not, what else you recommend. I'm trying to keep the cost low (because I will likely never use it) and maintain decent quality (in case I actually HAVE to use it).

Thanks in advance!

I like it. Impact guns got the OD ones for ~$24, so I got a few. It's light, easy to carry, the sheath is great. The spring steel of the knife is incredibly tough. Edge holding is mediocre.. rusts very easily, even here in Utah. Not a big deal though, easy to rub out the rust with scotch brite pads. Looks really great once you start using it and gets some wear mark on the blade. For the price, you can't go wrong. Just keep it oiled. :D Oh almost forgot, the bottle cap opener on the handguard is also very cool.

i took a close look at one. It looked horrible. you could see the blade wasn't ground evenly by the hilt, and there were some obvious flaws. I would rather go buy one of those 10 dollar knives at the gun show.

IMO, that looks like one knife you can put into a system, but don't count on it for everything you will need to do in a survival situation. Doesn't look like the heft you would need out of a large survival blade. Probably good for batoning wood, but only if it's full tang. If it rusts easily, I wouldn't get it since it is going in a bail out bag.

You could check out the Kabar Heavy Bowie and see how that tickles your fancy.
It's not so much that the gun does or doesn't do what it's supposed to, it's simply not running anymore. So if it doesn't run, what I do is sort of wang on it until it does.

I think that the Becker companion looks like a great knife, but may be a little over your price range.

Here is another option in a doall knife. It may be a little over the top, but the price is right.

glock knifes are OVERPRICED.

if you want a cheap camp knife with poor quality steel, (and i am not saying they are not useful, most of my knives are these, because i am not afraid to use them and lose them) then you can get MUCH better quality knives for much cheaper in the budk catalog.

I have one and can't say I'm to happy with it. Glad their firearms are much better. My current BOB fixed blade knife is a Cold Steel SRK. LOVE IT! My folder is a CRKT M16-12M with the Tanto tip.

I have one of these in my truck. It is very heavy, but has a crappy sheath. Mine came with the cordura sheath.

does it have a manual safety ?

sorry couldnt resist.

As cheap as the knives are cost wise, its probably worth picking up 1 or 2 and trying them out to see how you like them. Ive got a knife I paid like 10 bucks for that ive had for like 15 years and it still looks good as new. On stuff like that price isnt everything as far as judging quality.

What in the world are they hoping to accomplish with random post like that? They must know people are going to spot it and be annoyed, they purposely create a bad first impression... Weird.
