    I've been looking at the Blackjack Tac-ops knives. They're made from 1095 and are pretty affordable. I didn't see too much about them on the web. The Bark River site has some good pictures. The youtube videos are something I avoid when it comes to knives. Has anyone here purchased any?

    Seems a lot like their STS knives that were designed with Marine Force Recon training in mind that they didn't want to discuss :yawn:

    Who in military or law enforcement is going after $150+ 1095 knives?

    I'm looking at the Tac-Ops 4 and the 8. As far as the cost of the knives, I know soldiers and and others in government ops that love Spartan Blades. They retail for over twice as much and are worth every penny. The Blackjack Tac-Ops line should do well.

    Just got the #4 and will be making it some new grips. Some for me and some for interested parties.

    As far as the knife; I was instantly sold when I held it. It is more comfortable for me than the esse 4. It is a little thicker as far as spine and grips which is more to my liking. It came razor sharp from the factory and basically started to dig into my skin when I attempted to shave my forearm.:cool:
    The sheath feels more robust than the esse's and it has the nice adjustment screw for retention of the knife. Hmmm, what will it be first? Camo blue/black, glacier glow...

    I just ordered a TAC-OPS 8 proto in A2. I had an STS-8 but it was too heavy, I hunt pigs and deer, not Buicks! Hope to have it by this Tuesday. Will post when I do. Knivesshipfree is clearing out their stock.

    Oh no, thank YOU, bohn. Sweet knife. Will post some pics when i get a chance. Came dirty as hell, but there is something pleasing about cleaning up a brand new knife. Cut my finger doing it, so you know it's good:thumbup:
