Thumb Bridge Technology™

Specialized Thumb Bridge Technology™ provides the gloved or ungloved hand ease of opening in all conditions with added steadiness and skillful control of your blade. While open, the Thumb Bridge™ and blade choils allow you to choke up on the knife for fine cutting and knife work.
Our enhanced pull grip gives the user added texture in the body of the knife for a firm hold and quicker response.

Great knifes!

(Confession: I unfortunately do NOT personally own this knife.)
I have ordered 3 or 4 of these knives as "congratulation gifts," for some of my friends (Most of them in Law Enforcement/Fire Safety Professions).
And I have heard absolutely NO negative reviews about them. I've heard they keep a nice sharp edge, and the pocket clip is pretty durable and keeps a low pocket profile. The thumb bridge is a huge advantage for these guys when wearing gloves, and the knife size/weight are fantastic!

Viper Tanto

Excellent everyday carry. Perfect size and craftsmanship. Recommend

Great Product!

I've never been disappointed in anything I've purchased from First Tactical. Their customer service is second to none. Great knives, shirts, boots and socks. All solid value for the prices. Love the Tanto blade!!


I use this knife daily for multitasking. It opens easily, and I can use it for cutting small objects to big items. The off set clip makes it easy to clip to my scrubs at work, and I hardly feel the weight of it.

Not a bargain at any price

I purchased this knife as a gift for a friend that has just began collecting knives. He's been looking for a small EDC folding knife, but has been scared off by the prices of the 2.5" to 3" Benchmade, Spyderco and Boker Plus Zinker models. So, I figured that he didn't have to worry about price, if he was gifted a knife. When I received the knife, the blade centering was off and the blade grind resembled something that you'd find on a "gas station" knife. Fixed the blade centering, and moved onto the grind. Got the blade to a point where it could be deemed acceptable, and then accidently knocked it off the bench while it was open. So, now I have a two blades. The one still attached to the grip, and remainder that's now on the floor. Looking at the blade, I found the drill and tap in the front of the Thumb Bridge was off center, which left barely any steel on the right side of the blade. I now refer to this area as the weak spot, since that's where the blade broke. I wasn't expecting Benchmade or Spyderco manufacturing standards in a $35 knife that I got at 50% off, but I was expecting something that would at least last the day. Long story short, this knife has now found its way to the bottom of my garbage can.
