At only $27 Coast’s F402 Utility Knife is perhaps the best deal you’ll find on outdoor gear this summer. True survivalist and tactical experts prefer the reliability of a fixed blade knife for it’s precision cuts and long term durability. If you’re the sort of person that’s hard on your gear, this is the knife for you.
We’ve talked about Coast once before in our roundup of the best hunting knives, so I was really excited to get my hands on Utility Knife to see if would compare to their last offering. The 4″ inch fixed blade comes in a “gray” blade finish which not only looks tough but more importantly adds even more long term durability. One thing to note is these knives also carry a lifetime warranty.
When holding the knife, Coast uses a Nylon handle for added grip and dexterity. The knife also comes with a heavy duty sheen that offers peace of mind when walking with the knife attached to your body. Heck I even had the Coast F402 Utility Knife attached to my backpack shoulder straps on a long hike through bear country without having to worry about the knife cutting me or falling out of the holder.
Pros: Great at cutting cheese
Overall this is a great knife, that you can truly rely on and best of all is at a price most everyone can afford.
