This S.O.A. Assault knife features a contoured premium Micarta handle which gives it a tactical appearance. The full-tang 3CR13 stainless steel blade has a grey titanium coating to reduce glare and prevent corrosion. Each knife is etched with the S.O.A. emblem and "Death Waits In The Dark."
I bought 2 for Me and wifes' christmas presents. Love the edge and cut of the knife. On mine, the handle became loose which requires a star bit to remove. After removing it, I applied an adhesive and reassembled to make it better.
Excellent bang for your buck. Don't know of any other knife that offers the same performance at this price point.
If looking for a great tactical, survival knife look no further. This is an amazing knife & love the kydex sheath. As a veteran this will be my EDC. For the price it's a great steal. They could get alot more money for this knife. Knife stays snug in the sheath & will not fall out. Pick one up before it's too late. You'll be glad u did.
This is 100% a great knife. Built well, nice sharp blade, kydex sheath is great & holds knife firmly in place. I'm glad I bought a few because this will definitely become my EDC. As a combat vet I can assure u these are well worth getting. I'd pay $45 to $50 for this knife. At the price of $19.98 it's a steal.
this UC titanium-coated knife is a 'hybrid' for tactical/survival use and a must-have for the serious collector/aficionado ! this knife proves that simplicity really is better (love everything about it) … and it's balanced enough that if you had to throw it , well, you get the idea ! I like this knife so much I bought two of them already- highly recommended ! thanx Bud K
Well worth your while. Appreciate Special Operations Association logo as a Life Member of the association.
I've paid well over $50 for fixed blades of this size & quality. For $20 I didn't expect such a solid blade. An unbelievably low price! Good balance, good grip & lethal appearance(because it is). I recommend this, it's really a must have for anyone. BUDK & United Cutlery continue to impress!
This knife was a christmas present i had picked out. I wasn't expecting much as it was only twenty dollars and even came with a kydex sheath. However i was extremely impressed with the durability of the blade, the feel of the grip, the impressively built sheath, and honestly the grip just looks incredible. The blade feels powerful and simply wont bend or be dinged or scratched. Very impressive knife United Cutlery.
Thank you BudK you did it again this knife is awesome! The grip looks and feels cool, shape, thickness, and length of the knife is perfect. I was also surprised about the price, for a knife like this you'd have to pay $40.00 to $50.00, but the price was so good I ordered 2 now my Dad and I have more matching knives...that sounded weird, what ever thanks again BudK!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When this knife came in it was far more than I expected. Very strong, full tang knife. The grip is very comfortable. The grip pannels will come loose if you hit the knife extremely hard or throw it like I did, but they barely come loose. Sheath is a sturdy fit, this knife never falls out on me. I would recommend this knife to everybody.
United Cutlery SOA General Purpose: Self Defense/EDC/Heavy Cutting Ratings out of 10 Sheath: 10/10 Blade:9/10 Handle: 8/10 Edge: 8/10 Durability: 10/10 United Cutlery has a record of giving you a decent blade for the price. The SOA is no exception. Overall size, this knife is great for a fighter/combat blade. It fits well in the hand in a standard or icepick grip, a little awkward if you prefer a saber grip. The micarta scares are tight and reasonably comfortable, secured with threaded star screws. The edge comes out of the box sharp. Not "shaving sharp", but pretty close. A few minutes with a whetstone solves that. The blade IS stainless, so don't count on it to hold the worlds most exceptional edge for an extended period, but for a stainless blade, it's really nice. The titanium electroplate gives a nice finish to the blade and should provide excellent corrosion resistance. The textured thumb and forefinger sections give nice control and a sure, standard grip. There IS a small recess behind the blade edge, but don't count on using it for close up work. You'll just end up with a cut in an uncomfortable place. The kydex sheath is the real stand-out of this knife. The sheath is sturdy, thin, and light. The molding secures the knife solidly, with a minimum of rattle and no real play to speak of, yet does not interfere with a quick draw. The clip on the back is sturdy, and well made, and the bottom of the sheath has two holes for attaching lashings should you choose to wear it on the hip. The configuration of the sheath and the mounting of the clip lends itself best to a small-of-back carry with a 45 degree cant. The knife is a bit short if you're looking for a survival/outdoor type blade,and is probably not the best for batoning, not because of the blade's strength, but based on length and shape. This is an example of a nice, single edged, fixed blade fighter. It has a blade short enough to be fast, but long enough for vital strikes. There is an unobtrusive lanyard hole at the base should you choose to use it, and enough metal exposed for a backhanded attack. The true, full tang construction should hold up well for both thrusts and cuts against soft targets, and the blade holds enough of an edge for utility cutting (rope, sticks, plastic, ect). Makes for a good, all around EDC knife if you prefer a fixed blade for every day carry. While not what one might consider a "high end knife", you'll go a long way to find something comparable at this price line. This is a knife I would confidently carry for protection and every day tasks. Great knife for the 20 dollar price point. Regards, "13"
I've had my knife about four years now and it's made from 7cr17MoV steel. It'll take what ever I dish out. it's an exact copy of the ALFA BENELLI. Even the sheaths are interchangeable with perfect fit. That aside it's an outstanding knife. I'll keep watch on reviews. If it performs as well as the 7CR17 steel I'll buy another.
Sharp and good feel. If you, your family and/or dog are menaced by vicious Pit Bulls, this is the knife for you. You will slice and dice the attacking dog like paper, and your trouble will be over. It worked for me, and the Police thanked me.
This knife is way better than I thought. It came razor sharp, way sharper then anything else I bought from here. The sheath isn't the greatest, has a little rattle but its still a good one. All in all great knife I highly recommend it
I bought this knife because it looks great. But the blade steel is good quality and the sheath is great and grip scales feel good in the hand. The sheath holds the knife secure. Fit and finish on mine was excellent. I bought my son one and had to tighten the screws on the sheath. All in all a great knife. One suggestion. Have the manufacturer to tighten up on quality control and this knife would be perfect. I give it two thumbs up. And don't discontinue it from your line up.
I love the handle it is 1 of a kind!! I do wish it had been a tanto blade though or they would make one with a tanto blade! The kydex sheath is strong and hasn't loosened up yet in over a year of ownership! Being a US Army SF sniper and haveing used many knives and weapons, this one by far is one of my favs and is my favorite handle yet! I have one seen this type of micarta handle on one other knife maker and that's Richard "Dick" Marcinko's (seal team 6 founder) knives which start at about $350 at the least! Which makes this a great design and functional knife for the money! Thanks budk
this knife is awesome, the way the handle is cut feels great in my hand no chance of slipping. it was slightly loose but that was an easy fix. the kydex sheath hold the knife very tight so it can be carried upside down on molle vest if desired. the blade is pretty darn sharp but gonna take it to my wicked edge and make it insane sharp. This knife looks menacing in ones hand.Im going to be getting another one for sure
When I got this knife today the handle has very loose and I had to tighten the screws. But what a beauty this blade is it's super sharp and it feels really comfortable in my hand and the Kydex sheath provides easy access in a tight situation. I will be buying a another one for sure.
Just received this knife about 5 minutes ago. Ordered it Monday got it Wednesday morning . Sorry only took about a day,out of the box its probably the sickest knife I own. It wasn't to sharp but easy fix. Fits amazingly in the hand. This is a must have
this piece is the most beautiful knife in my collection the clip fits great on my duty belt. the scales on the sides came a little lose but that is normal. the blade came presharpened. all of the writing and decals are engraved. its just amazing how well priced it is. buy one NOW
Great knife, very sharp. The handle is very sturdy And love the feel of it in my hands. Kydex holster is durable and knife fits in it very smooth.
This knife wile a bit long for EDC (check your local laws) is handy enough for everyday use. It's sharp and seems to hold the edge well. The handle is utilitarian and doesn't seem slippery or awkward. While not exactly pretty it's a good work knife.
Great knife, handles well, cuts great, looks great, has a few problems, the screws holdin the clip to the sheath are always loose and don't tighten very much, maybe with some of that instant concrete at AutoZone could hold them together.. Easily concealed, great price for the quality of the KNIFE, the sheath however should be worth a measly .50 cents.. But overall great knife!
I got one for me and one for my girlfriend. The handle scales on mine were loose. They were tightened easily with the correct bit. The knife does rattle a bit inside the sheath. Would have preferred for it to be American-made. But, things being what they are, I suppose it's a decent buy for the money.
It is an ok knife for the money. The weight is good and so is the balance seems to hold an edge. The handle is small and if you have a big hand it will not work for you. I like the profile of the case however it is not very secure and my first tactical job it fell out 3 time.
