CobraTec Knives Large CTK-1 LNYCTK-1LDS – Satin D2 Partially Serrated Drop Point Blade – NYPD Blue Aluminum Alloy Handle – Tactical Black Pocket Clip & Hardware – Double Action Out the Front Automatic
CobraTec Knives, based out of Texas, offers a number of automatic pocket knives, specializing in Out the Front autos. Our newest carry here at SRKT, seeing them for the first time in May 2022, we are absolutely blown away at the action on these OTF’s, as they come in at a very affordable price point. With most of their main-line OTF’s being available at less than $200, these are the best OTF’s we’ve seen that make a less-than $300 sized hole in your pocket, and they are certainly comparable to some of the more well-known and premium-priced out the fronts on the market. Many of CobraTec’s models feature tough D2 steel, offering great edge retention, and relatively-easy resharpening. Some other steels that the US-based company uses include Crucible 154CM and Bohler M390. Needless to say, CobraTec doesn’t skimp on their materials, especially considering the price.
Side-opening automatics, OTF and fixed pen knives, fixed blades, and wallets are also featured in CobraTec’s wide range of products. On top of that, they offer a huge number of handle finishes, including basic shades of black, white and green, brighter colors such as tiffany blue, pink, and red, and homages to first responders and American-flag finished handles. Some upgraded models also come with cerakote finished handles, giving them two tones and some extra style.
No matter what you’re looking for, CobraTec is sure to have something that will fit your style and needs. Dozens of models, multiple (and customizable) blade shapes, and a great no-hassle lifetime warranty round off this solid and underrated knife manufacturer. In our opinion, CobraTec offers some of the best automatic pocket knives for their price range. We highly recommend trying one of these guys out, especially if you’re looking for your first OTF, or to add something new to your collection. Be sure not to forget about their side-openers, pen knives, and fixed blades!
CobraTec Knives are all manufactured in Texas, United States. Materials for CobraTec are also all US-made, however, parts are sent as raw materials to China for shaping and milling, then returned to the US for manufacturing. Us at SRKT love the fact that most of the process that goes into making these affordable yet high-quality knives is based in the United States.
The CTK-1 collection by CobraTec, one of their two main out the front auto lines, features a ribbed aluminum alloy handle, allowing for far superior grip. The machined texture on the CTK-1’s make the smooth aluminum handle much more difficult to drop. As with many of CobraTec’s knives, and all of their standard collection knives, all of the models in this line come with tough D2 steel, which allows for a high level of edge retention, meaning you’ll have to sharpen your new blade a lot less than you’re used to. An incredibly smooth and enjoyable double-action mechanism, including a strong lockup and rapid action, the CTK-1 line knives make for incredible everyday carry’s, slicing through tasks with ease and allowing for fast over and over use. CobraTec offers an abundance of handle finishes and blade styles within the CTK-1 collection, so you’re sure to find one you fall in love with.
The CTK-1 large knives are beasts, and make for a heavy-duty and reliable EDC. Thick and heavier than most OTF’s it’s size, at 9.3 oz., the large CTK-1 is made for heavy duty and tactical use. Measuring in at over 9” total including the glass breaker, these big boys are favorites for self defense and collection. All of the knives in the CTK-1 collection feature a pocket clip, glass breaker, and black nylon belt sheath.
This specific model, LNYCTK-1LDS, comes with a blue handle, dubbed “NYPD Blue”, as it resembles the classic American police uniform, especially those seen in New York City, made of aluminum.

Manufactured in the United States, comes with a black nylon belt sheath and foam-padded plastic CobraTec branded case. Lifetime Warranty.
