A Trusty Everyday Carry Switchblade From Tekto Gear


August 8, 2018 Briefings By

A knife trusty enough for everyday carry has to meet a few requirements: it needs to be sleek, compact and available for use at a moment’s notice. Tekto Gear makes more than a few knives that fit this bill, but the Amber sets itself apart with a smooth wood finish over the aluminum alloy handle — the handle also features a glass breaker and pocket clip. The quick-release, dual-action button sports the latest spring technology to quickly deploy the 3.8-inch serrated, chrome steel blade.

This exemplary EDC switchblade is currently available exclusively to Gear Patrol readers with a 25-percent discount when you enter the code GearPatrol25 at checkout.

Note: Owning and carrying an automatic knife isn’t legal in every state due to the Federal Switchblade Act. You can check how the law works in your state here.
